Mathew Knowles facing second paternity lawsuit

Beyonce's dad Mathew Knowles has been hit with a second paternity lawsuit from a woman who alleges he fathered her child.

In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Taqoya Branscomb filed suit in a Harris County, Texas court, claiming she became pregnant after having a fling with Knowles in 2010 - the same year his ex-wife, Beyonce's mum Tina, filed for divorce.


Branscomb is asking Knowles for a DNA test, declaration of paternity and child support.


Tina Knowles initially split from her ex-husband after finding out he was cheating on her with another woman, Alexsandra Wright, whom he also got pregnant.


They share a four-year-old son, Nixon, and earlier this year (14), Knowles's child support payment was reduced from $12,000 to $2,400-a-month after his income dropped when he was fired as Beyonce's music manager in 2011.
