“I Am An Opportunist…Been That Way All My Life:” Mathew Knowles’ Baby Mama Changes Her Tune

November 7, 2014  |  

Yesterday, the mother of Mathew Knowles’ 4-year-old daughter issued a statement basically shaming the media for pegging her as an “opportunist.”

“I am not an ‘opportunist,’ if that was the case I would’ve spoken out four years ago,” she expressed in her statement.

Now, less than 24 hours later, she seems to be singing a rather different tune. In an Instagram post published this morning, TaQoya seemed to be gloating about taking advantage of certain “opportunities” for the sake of her daughter.

“In life people teach you to be great, successful and to seize opportunities. If there is a burger or filet mignon in front of me and I have the opportunity to eat filet, I eat filet. I used to drive a Toyota but when the opportunity came for me to upgrade, I now ride foreign. When there is an opportunity for me to sell a 2 million dollar house, I sell it the fastest. If and when there’s an opportunity to get a check because of all these haters…you better believe I’m gonna collect.

Now there is an opportunity for me to make my daughter’s life better because of all of this media, so you right I am an opportunist…been that way all my life. Why y’all mad though!”


She added:

“Sorry to all of the bums who have no opportunities to seize, we good over here. It’s sad to say the only negativity is coming from my black people #teamkoi #opportunist #blessedandhighlyfavored.”

While it appears that Branscomb is trying turn a negative into a positive here, her comments don’t really seem to be encouraging people to view her differently.
