Beyonce’s extended family gained another member when a paternity test proved Matthew Knowles to be the father of a woman named TaQoya Branscomb’s daughter Koi Knowles. The 30-year-old Houston native is opened up about their short romance on Inside Edition. According to Branscomb, Matthew allegedly told her he was unable to have children. “He’d had a vasectomy. Or at least that was what I was told,” she said.

Branscomb hopes that Koi, who has dreams of being a singer/dancer, gets to meet Beyonce one day. “They are half sisters and maybe one day down the line that can be made possible,” she said.

Matthew also fathered a son with Alexsandra Wright, who too went on Inside Edition to reveal details about their relationship. Wright was kicked out of her home after struggling financially after her child support checks were retroactively reduced.

Bey’s father resurfaced, from the trenches, just long enough to stir some controversy around “Cartergate” then disappear again. On a brighter note, Tina Knowles is rebounding from their divorce with her acting boo Richard Lawson.
