Looks like Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles, can’t escape the baby mama drama!
Months after a paternity test determined that he is the father to a four-year-old love child, named Koi, the adorable toddler’s mother, TaQoya Branscomb, says he still owes child support!

“He has not been cooperative,” she tells Radar Online of the former Destiny’s Child manager.
But she hasn’t lost hope. She adds, “I’m optimistic and hopefully things will change.”
TaQoya says she’s still facing off with Mathew in court, as he allegedly refuses to pay the $1,600 a month in child support, noting that “mediation is the next step.”
Regardless of the legal battle she’s facing, she’s managed to keep her daughter’s best interests in mind.
“The important thing is my daughter is well taken care of and she has a support system,” she says.
Mathew, who is estranged from Bey and her sister Solange, also fathered another child, a son named Nixon, out of wedlock.
Last April, that child’s mother, Alexsandra Wright, told In Touch Weekly they were headed to a homeless shelter because the 63-year-old refused to pay child support.
