Beyonce-Tina-Matthew-Knowles-BN-Music-July-2014-BellaNaija.com_-600x453Another woman claiming that Beyoncé‘s dad, Matthew Knowles, is the father of her child has filed legal documents in Texas requesting for child support.

TaQoya Branscomb, the said woman, claims she was pregnant with Matthew’s child in 2010, the same year Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Matthew.

TaQoya who was formerly a lingerie model but is now a real estate agent, claims their relationship triggered Tina’s decision to call it quits.

According to reports, the woman gave birth to the 4 year-old child in Harris County, Texas. She is demanding he takes DNA test and asking for child support plus money for her attorney’s fees.

In 2010, Queen Bey’s father had a similar issue with  Alexandra Wright, who was pregnant with his son. His $12,000 child support fine was reduced to $2, 485 per month when Beyonce fired him as her manager.
