‘I Am Now A Hardworking Single Mother:’ Mathew Knowles’ Alleged Baby Mama Defends Herself Against Raunchy Photo Critics
Yesterday, we told you that Mathew Knowles has been hit with another paternity lawsuit by a woman named TaQoya Branscomb. As you may recall, TaQoya says that she gave birth to Mathew’s daughter, Koi, back in 2010. Now, she’s going after the music industry executive for child support and attorney’s fees.
In addition to being shocked by the idea that Mathew may be the father of another child that he won’t take care of, racy photos of TaQoya also had the Internet buzzing. In professionally shot photographs, which can be seen here, the lingerie-model-turned-real-estate-agent leaves almost nothing to the imagination as she poses in barely there outfits. Of course, Internet users questioned TaQoya’s character after seeing the images, so she felt the need to speak out and defend herself.
“First I’d like to thank my family, my friends, and the public for their love and support,” she said in a statement released to HipHollywood. “I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. With that being said… it’s in my best interest for this to remain a private matter for now… Above all I am a mother and my daughter’s well being is my only priority. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter.
The pictures you see are in no way a representation of who I am. They were taken 10 years ago… And I am now a hard-working successful single mother. Honestly I just want what is best for my daughter.”
She does appear to have turned her life around. What are your thoughts on TaQoya’s statement.
