The woman claiming Mathew Knowles is the father of her 4-year-old daughter Koi is finally speaking out. Taqoya Branscomb, 30, sent HipHollywood the following statement regarding the paternity lawsuit filed against Knowles:
“First I’d like to thank my family, my friends, and the public for their love and support. I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. With that being said … it’s in my best interest for this to remain a private matter for now.
Above all I am a mother and my daughter’s well being is my only priority. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter. The pictures you see are in no way a representation of who I am. They were taken 10 years ago, and I am now a hard working successful single mother. Honestly, I just want what is best for my daughter.”
According to Branscomb, the former Destiny’s Child manager got her pregnant in 2010. Per the lawsuit filed on May 30, Taqoya is asking for a DNA test, a declaration of paternity, child support and money for her lawyer fees.
After news of the lawsuit became public knowledge, racy photos began circulating of the former lingerie model. In the images, Branscomb, who is now a real estate agent in Houston, can be seen sporting extremely revealing garments. As Branscomb stated, she would like to put those images behind her, so she sent us some new photos.
