Beyonce - Matthew Knowles hit with new paternity suit

Beyonce's father has been hit with a new paternity suit.

Matthew Knowles, who guided his superstar daughter to fame from a young age, is being taken to court by a woman from Houston, Texas, over claims he fathered an illegitimate child in 2010.

Taqoya Branscomb, 30, has filed a lawsuit against the music manager in Harris County, Texas, alleging he is the father of her daughter and is requesting a DNA test.

The 30-year-old lingerie model-turned-real estate agent is also seeking child support and money to pay for her attorney fees, BuzzFeed.com reports.

In 2010, Matthew acknowledged that he fathered a son - four-year-old Nixon - with Alexsandra Wright after being hit with a paternity suit.

The music mogul, who is also father to Solange Knowles, was ordered by a court to pay $12,000 a month in child support but this was later reduced to $2,485 a month as Matthew claimed his income had significantly decreased.

Matthew's illegitimate child resulted in his 30-year marriage to wife Tina Knowles ending in 2010.

The following year, Beyonce ended her professional relationship with her father as she decided to drop him as her manager.
