Mathew Knowles Ordered To Cough Up Back Child Support To Baby-Mama Taqoya Branscomb!

Beyonce and Solange Knowles' father, Mathew Knowles, has been ordered to pay Taqoya Branscomb $70,000 in back child support.

Knowles reportedly paid his baby-mama $225,000 to keep her mouth shut about their secret child previously.

Knowles is a real piece of work and attempted to buy Taqoya's silence after she told him she was pregnant with their daughter, who is now five-years-old.

A Houston, Texas family court judge tore into Knowles for giving Branscomb the $225,000 “hush money” payment to persuade her from hauling him into court for child support.

“Mr. Knowles knew of his paternity in September 2009 and clearly sought to avoid the establishment of a support obligation based primarily on the tolling agreement and the payment of monies pursuant to said agreement, which the court can only reasonably conclude was hush money,” Judge David D. Farr wrote as part of his ruling in Harris County District Court.

Little Koi was born in 2010, while Mathew was still married to Beyonce’s mother, Tina. Branscomb sued Knowles in 2014 over the paternity of the little girl, and the pair had been battling it out in court ever since.

The family court jduge judge sided with Branscomb and ordered that Knowles’ wages be garnished to pay her $70,822 in back child support plus interest, along with $1,496 a month in regular child support. 

By @balleralert "TaQoya Branscomb, who is Matthew Knowles newest baby mama, talks to rumorfix. TaQoya who was awarded $1,500 a month in child support from Beyonce’s dad, tells rumorfix, “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.” She also denies shes the one who leaked the story “I was just as shocked as anyone when the information was leaked,” she says. “I had remained quiet and raised my daughter as a single mother in a happy and healthy environment. 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. 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. 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.” #TaQoyaBranscomb #mathewknowles #koiknowles #beyonce #Solange" via @PhotoRepost_app

Knowles is also now responsible for the child’s health insurance as well as $50,000 for Branscomb’s attorney fees. Judge Farr awarded Branscomb sole custody of their daughter, and gave Knowles an earful for turning his back on his own flesh and blood.

“The court notes that Mr. Knowles has zero interest, and in this court’s consideration on the evidence, zero capability of being a positive role model in the child’s life,” Judge Farr wrote.

Knowles claimed he was too broke to pay back child support but shouldn’t have to because he already paid Branscomb the $225,000. Knowles also said he’s not responsible for back child support from when Koi was a baby because he paid for Branscomb to have an abortion. He allegedly thought she had gone through with the abortion until they met up shortly after Koi was born. 

The judge didn't buy Knowles' story at all.  Judge Farr wrote, "By way of findings to the issue of retroactive child support, the court notes that it has considerable doubts concerning the veracity and credibility of Mr. Knowles’ testimony based on numerous observations at trial."
