It looks as though Matthew Knowles is having another Maury Povich moment, and Beyoncé and Solange may have another sibling.

According to TMZ, TaQoya Branscomb, of Houston, is taking Knowles to court for a DNA test because she says he’s the father of her daughter, who was born in 2010. In addition to the DNA test, the 30-year-old real estate agent is requesting child support and attorneys fees from Knowles.

Branscomb alleges that the relationship with Knowles occurred in 2010. Coincidentally, this was during the same time that Knowles acknowledged that he was the father of Alexsandra Wright’s son. The affair with Wright led to his divorce from Tina Knowles.

Last year, Knowles caught a break in child support for Wright’s son after a judge drastically reduced his monthly payment from $12,000 to $2,485 due to a change in his income. That change of income came after Beyoncé fired her father as her manager. Knowles has yet to make a statement about the new allegations of fatherhood.
