Ohh Ohhhhh.. looks like Mathew Knowles was busted in the head last month by family court Judge David D. Farr after it was alleged that he attempted to buy his former boo-thang TaQoya Branscomb’s silence after learning that she was pregnant with their now 5-year-old daughter child, Koi Knowles. He was also ordered to pay $70,822 in back child support plus interest.
According to source, Knowles allegedly gave Branscomb $225,000 in hush money when he learned of her pregnancy in 2009. He was still married to his ex-wife, Tina Knowles at the time.
“Mr. Knowles knew of his paternity in September 2009 and clearly sought to avoid the establishment of a support obligation based primarily on the tolling agreement and the payment of monies pursuant to said agreement, which the court can only reasonably conclude was hush money,” Judge Farr wrote as part of his ruling in Harris County District Court.
Also, Knowles argued that he should not have to pay back child support because he already paid Branscomb $225,000, gave her money to have an abortion, and was under the impression that she did until shortly after Koi’s birth. Judge Farr, however, did not see things his way. Read more from story.
