Will Beyoncé acknowledge Mathew Knowles' newest love child?

Beyoncé's dad, Mathew Knowles, is father to yet another love child after a DNA test proves he's the baby daddy of a former lingerie model's kid.

A paternity test obtained by TMZ reveals that there is a 99.998 percent chance (which is pretty darn sure) that Knowles is the father of a baby born to TaQoya Branscomb, a former model who is now a real estate agent.

This would add another sibling to Beyoncé and her sister Solange, although the superstar has not even acknowledged the first love child that was revealed in 2010. Knowles apparently fathered a baby with Alexsandra Wright, the woman he was cheating with on his then-wife, Tina Knowles.

Beyoncé was angry at her father's infidelity and never acknowledged her new half-sibling. The new love child was born in 2010, so it may even seem as if Knowles could have been carrying on two extramarital affairs at the same time, or at least very close to each other.

Meanwhile, the mother of the latest revealed offspring of Knowles' is trying seek child support, but the onetime music manager was let off the hook from paying his first love child's mother any large payments. Knowles, who used to be a millionaire when he managed Beyoncé's former girl band, Destiny's Child, was fired when news of his affairs surfaced and is now totally broke.

When Knowles was paying child support to his first love child's baby mama, she was getting $12,000 a month, but this was quickly reduced upon his firing by Beyoncé. Chances are Branscomb will not be receiving much from her baby's deadbeat dad either.
