There are two things we need to know about Mathew Knowles‘ newest baby mother, Taqoya Branscomb. One, Knowles is the father to her daughter, Koi Knowles, and two, she’s not an opportunist.
After it became public that Mathew is the father to yet another young child, as the first incident, the interviews came rolling in. And while TaQoya may be getting the justice that she deserves she probably didn’t expect everyone’s two cents thrown her way.
In an interview with RumorFix, his second baby mother states that she dated him because of who he was as a man, not because his daughter was Beyonce. “Mathew and I had a romantic relationship in 2009 during a difficult time in his life. It had nothing to do with Beyoncé’s music career. Despite the media speculations, I am not an ‘opportunist,’ if that was the case I would’ve spoken out four years ago.”
So how did her story get out? Someone leaked it (of course) and she “was just as shocked as anyone when the information was leaked.”
She states that she raised her daughter for four years as a single mother and as any mother she’s exhausting all possibilities to make sure her daughter’s talents are discovered at a young age. “Koi has been modeling and acting long before we’ve been in the media, like any other parent I work hard to nourish and support my daughters many talents, whatever they may be.”
She knew Mathew wasn’t going to be in her daughter’s life emotionally so she at least wanted financial help for her expenses of having a second mouth to feed. “I had exhausted all of my efforts to keep this out of the public eye and was forced to rely on the Houston court system to get guideline support.”
But in the end, she still would like the famous girls to meet their sister, but if not she’ll live. “In regards to family visitation, I am always open to her to having relationship with her father and all her extended family members. Whether or not that happens, Koi will be just fine.”
Since it was determined that Bey’s father was Koi’s dad he has to pay her mother $1.5k a month in child support. Branscomb is still a real estate agent and will soon be releasing a vintage lingerie line as well as a children lip gloss and haircare line in the near future.
