Taqoya Branscomb, the 30 year old woman claiming that Mathew Knowles is the father of her 4-year-old daughter, Koi is finally speaking out. She sent HipHollywood the following statement regarding the paternal 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, Mathew Knowles 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.
