Solange Reacts To Reports That She’s Friends With Mathew’s Alleged Baby Mama

Yesterday, the Internet blew up after a throwback photo of Solange Knowles posing with her father’s latest alleged baby mama, TaQoya Branscomb, hit the web. According to reports, Solange and TaQoya met back in 2008 through a stylist. After meeting, the two supposedly hung out together on multiple occasions at various nightclubs and bars around Houston. Reports went on to suggest that Mathew was aware that TaQoya and Solange were spending time together, but that Solange was oblivious to the affair.

A representative on behalf of Solange has since spoken with TMZ and they’re calling BS on the reports. According to the rep, Solange insists that she doesn’t know TaQoya personally. As for the image in question, which can be viewed here, the rep says it’s just “a random fan photo.”

As you’ve probably heard (or read) by now, TaQoya recently came forward and filed a paternity suit against Mathew, insisting that he is the father of her daughter, Koi, who was born in 2010. We’re still not sure what to make of this photograph, but we’re pretty sure that all will be revealed in due time.

This story gets more interesting by the day!

The Plot Thickens: Were Solange And Matthew Knowles’ Alleged Baby Mama Friends?

Solange And Matthew Knowles' Alleged Baby Mama

According to TMZ, TaQoya Branscomb, the alleged mother of yet another one of Matthew Knowles’ children, may have been friends with Solange.

A picture of Branscomb and Solange together recently surfaced and TMZ reports that the two met in 2008 through a stylist and hung out with one another on multiple occasions in nightclubs and bars in Houston.

Apparently, Knowles knew that his daughter was hanging with Branscomb but Solange didn’t know about their alleged affair.

Branscomb has recently come forward asking for a DNA test to prove that Matthew Knowles is indeed the father of her children and is also requesting child support. She also recently sued Knowles, claiming he got her pregnant back in 2010, the same time he and Tina were going through a divorce and right around the same time he fathered his son Nixon with Alexsandra Wright.

If this story is true, it just continues to get messier and messier.

It’s truly a shame that Matthew has lived his life in such a way where these rumors seem more plausible than they do ludicrous.

What Solange Had To Say About That Infamous Elevator Fight…

Solange hasn’t had much to say to the media since footage of her attacking brother-in-law, Jay Z, in a hotel elevator went viral. But she’s the cover girl for the August 2014 issue of Lucky magazine and it seems that addressing the much talked about altercation was inevitable. While the “Losing You” singer wouldn’t offer much information about the altercation, she did say this:

“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” the single mom expressed. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”

“We’ve always held each other down no matter what. That’s something I’m drilling into Julez now.”

As you may recall, shortly following the video leak, Solange and her family released a joint statement regarding the confrontation.

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident,” the statement read. “But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

Solange has also been making headlines lately as it’s believed that she got engaged a couple of weeks ago to her 51-year-old boyfriend, Alan Ferguson; however, those reports have yet to be confirmed.

Just last month (May 9 to be exact) the uber-beautiful Kelly Rowland tied the knot to her manager, Tim Witherspoon, in a private ceremony in Costa Rica. She hasn’t talked about marriage and this new stage in her life, but from the glow we’ve seen on her skin lately, it’s safe to say that she’s on cloud nine. And while Witherspoon could qualify as her soul mate in a romantic way, in an interview with Hello Beautiful, Rowland says she believes in soul mates in the friendship realm as well. She said that some of her best friends are people she can’t live without and that she considers her soul mates:

I believe in soulmates. I believe soulmates are not just in relationships, but they’re in friendships. I have soulmates through Beyonce and Michelle and Angie and Solange and LaLa. I have soulmates. I’m so thankful for that too because I think they understand you. If there’s something on my heart or my mind, before I can even pick up the phone, one of them is calling me saying, “What are you doing? Are you ok?” We’re connected and I think that’s such a beautiful thing. It’s the greatest gift you can have.

And in case you weren’t aware, Angie is Angie Beyince, Beyoncé’s cousin, and VP of operations for Beyoncé’s production company, Parkwood Entertainment. But anywho, do you have girlfriends that you believe you’re connected to on a deeper level? Be thankful if you do, because these women are a gift! Check out Rowland’s full interview over at Hello Beautiful and share your thoughts.

It looks like that old cliché “all press is good press” may have some truth to it. People love a train wreck and that’s exactly what fans felt like they were watching after footage leaked of Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law, Jay Z, in an elevator. Although news of the altercation seemed to garner tons of negative attention, it also appeared to come with a few perks for the 27-year-old recording artist.

According to HipHopDX, Nielsen Soundscan data reveals that the “Losing You” singer experienced a significant spike in digital sales since the footage leaked. The data reveals that for the week ending on May 18th, just six days after the footage was posted by TMZ, her sales were up to 2,000—more than double the previous week’s sales, which was at. Despite all of the controversy, all seems to be well on the Knowles-Carter home front these days. Shortly after the incident, the family released a joint statement regarding the incident.

“Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”

Michelle Williams Teams Up With Beyoncé And Kelly Rowland Again For Gospel Song, “Say Yes”

Destiny’s Child is back!

But not really. Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland have come to Michelle Williams’ side to support her in the release of her new gospel song, “Say Yes.” Solange Knowles also reportedly provides vocals on “Say Yes.” The song, seemingly inspired by the Nigerian Christian song “When Jesus Say Yes (Nobody Can Say No)” gets a funky revamp courtesy of Williams and her girls. It sounds like a dance song more than a gospel track thanks to the EDM aspects of it, but the lyrics definitely give God all the praise:

There’s no limit to what You can do
Cause it all belongs to You
Yes, it all belongs to You
(No rushing now)
You’re almighty and all powerful
And it all belongs to You
Yes, it all belongs to You

The ladies take turns tackling verses on the uplifting and uptempo track, which I’m sure will have you bobbing your head or at least tapping your foot (or having a praise break at your desk).

This isn’t the first time the ladies have reunited for a track since Destiny’s Child disbanded. The ladies teamed up for Rowland’s, “You’ve Changed” for Talk A Good Game, and did a Neptunes-produced track called “Nuclear” for a recently released DC compilation album called Love Songs. “Say Yes” will be featured on Williams’ upcoming album, Journey To Freedom.

I definitely enjoyed it, but what about you?

‘Don’t Use Your Fists!’ Porsha Williams Urges Solange To Keep Her Hands To Herself

If you haven’t had a good laugh yet today, look no further. We’ve got just the thing for you. Porsha Williams recently appeared on “Dish Nation” for a chat with Rickey Smiley. During her interview, the hosts began discussing the infamous elevator fight video, which depicts Solange attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, as her sister, Beyoncé, looks on. As the hosts explored one possible theory regarding what triggered the attack, good ole’ Porsha decided to chime in with an impromptu PSA about nonviolence.

“Yeah, but she’s too pretty to be doing that,” Porsha began. “I just feel like women these days, we gotta keep it together. We’re all ladies.”

Ironically, Porsha then went on to tell Solange why she should keep her hands to herself.

“If you have a problem with someone, don’t use your fists. Violence is not the answer!” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star said while looking into the camera, mocking herself.

The camera then quickly cut to a clip of Porsha attacking Kenya Moore on the set of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show. Though most folks got a little chuckle out of Porsha’s little PSA, we doubt Kenya will find it funny.

Oh, Porsha.

“Worth Fighting For”: Designer Behind Metal Bag Solange Threw At Jay Z During Attack Uses Fight To Promote The Clutch

If you’ll recall, the night of the Met Gala, Solange Knowles wore with her peach Phillip Lim gown a gold clutch. The clutch, which is made by Anya Hindmarch and is made out of metal (though it looks like a simple packet of cookies), was thrown during Solange’s fight with Jay Z, and if it had connected with his face, it probably could have done some major damage. When the fight was over, Jay actually handed back the bag (right before she pummeled at him one more time), and she exited the Standard Hotel with the bag in hand.

Since the video was leaked, Hindmarch has decided to use the fight to promote the bag, which is the Crisp Packet Clutch. The bag is described as “wearable art”. It retails for around $1,600 and according to the bagmaker’s Twitter, it is “worth fighting for.”

In poor taste? Probably. Clever? I’d have to say so.

And all this extra press is working. The orange clutch is sold out on the site, as well as every other color but the turquoise, and NPR even did a hilarious interview with Solange’s clutch, where the crisp packet clutch said this about the fight:

If you only knew the things I’ve seen and the money I cost. It’s not so much sympathy as it is this feeling of … what are you doing? I mean … what, y’all have never seen people argue before? You’ve never seen family fights? Don’t you watch The Real Housewives? I mean, who cares?”

As a bag lover, I must say that the clutch is quite cute. And while I might not have gone with the whole tongue-in-cheek fight reference to push it, seeing as that was a very violent situation, when you’re trying to sell something, any press is good press I guess…

 

Michelle Williams On Solange Elevator Attack: ‘We Protect Each Other’

Considering that Michelle Williams, Beyoncé and Solange were all down in Costa Rica together for Kelly Rowland’s wedding the weekend following the Met Gala, there’s a good chance that the ladies spoke about that infamous elevator attack way before the public caught wind of it. But Michelle says she’ll never tell what was discussed because that’s family business.

“Man, I wish I could give you an answer,” she said at NBC’s 2014 Upfronts, according to the New York Daily News. “I don’t wish to talk about something that’s personal, and that’s what family does. We protect each other and keep it locked.”

What she was open to speaking about, however, was her new Oxygen reality show “Fix My Choir.” At this point, it’s pretty clear that no one from the Knowles-Carter camp will be revealing any details about the much-talked about altercation. As we reported yesterday, the family released a joint statement addressing the leaked elevator video and they’re pretty much maintaining a united front in hopes that they public will just drop it.

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident,” the statement reads. “But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

Well, so much for that.
