Looks like Matthew Knowles tried to buy his baby mama’s silence with $225,000 after she told him she was pregnant with their now five-year-old daughter.
That’s according to a Houston family court judge, who ripped Knowles for giving baby mama Taqoya Branscomb the $225,000 “hush money” payment to persuade her from hauling him into court for child support.
At the time of birth in 2010, Knowles was still married to Beyonce’s mother Tina..
In a ruling last month, the judge sided with Branscomb, ordering Knowles’ wages garnished to pay her $70,822 in back child support plus interest, along with $1,496 a month in regular child support. Knowles is also now responsible for the child’s health insurance as well as $50,000 in Branscomb’s attorney fees.
