Koi and Taqoya Branscomb Mathew Knowles Beyoncé are concerned for her half-sister’s safety; sources said OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.
BEYONCÉ has been dragged into a DUI nightmare after her kid sister was put in harm’s way by her boozed-up mom, according to police documents!
In the past, the internet was buzzing about the news of Beyoncé’s half-sister Koi Knowles. As previously reported, Koi’s father is Matthew Knowles and her mother is TaQoya Branscomb. TaQoya’s camp has released a statement, addressing claims that she is an “opportunist” who only made a baby with Matthew to take the famous Knowles name.
TaQoya’s first rebuttal to that is that her and Matthew’s child is four years old and if she was an opportunist she would have told the tabloids about Beyoncé’s half-sister years ago. Her second rebuttal is that she is not the person responsible for leaking the information. The news of Koi Knowles existence was revealed to TMZ by Houston’s Harris County Family Court. Below is TaQoya’s official statement.
Mathew and I had a romantic relationship in 2009 during a difficult time in his life. It had nothing to do with Beyoncé’s music career. Despite the media speculations, I am not an “opportunist”, if that was the case I would’ve spoken out four years ago. I was just as shocked as anyone when the information was leaked. I had remained quiet and raised my daughter as a single mother in a happy and healthy environment. Koi has been modeling and acting long before we’ve been in the media, like any other parent I work hard to nourish and support my daughters many talents, whatever they may be. I had exhausted all of my efforts to keep this out of the public eye and was forced to rely on the Houston court system to get guideline support. In regards to family visitation, I am always open to her to having relationship with her father and all her extended family members. Whether or not that happens, Koi will be just fine.
A source had also learned Bey’s nine-year-old half-sister, Koi, was riding in a car when her mother, Taqoya Branscomb, was busted by Los Angeles cops for driving under the influence. Former stripper Taqoya, 36, was arrested in March 2019 and charged with four misdemeanors, including DUI, driving without a valid driver’s license, and child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause significant bodily injury or death, according to police files. Records show her blood alcohol level was over twice the legal limit when she was driving with Koi, whose daddy is Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles. “Beyoncé doesn’t have direct contact with Koi, but of course she’s concerned about her safety, and this incident does not put Taqoya’s parenting in a good light,” said a source close to the star, whose dad was battling cancer at the time of the incident. The arrest made things “stressful” Beyonce 38, and her 68-year-old dad, the source said.
Initially, Taqoya pleaded not guilty to all counts, then struck a plea deal and was found guilty of DUI, records show. The remaining counts were dismissed. She was given probation and ordered to take 26 parenting classes, which legal records indicate she finished. Taqoya has had a rocky relationship with Mathew, who was divorced by Beyoncé’s mom, Tina, in 2011. He’s never publicly acknowledged Koi as his child, but a court-ordered DNA test proved he’s the father. A judge ordered him to fork over nearly $71,000 in back child support, not sure if he has paid any. But sources say that he hasn’t. However, despite government records, Taqoya said the incident never happened, and reports of her arrest are “inaccurate.”
TaQoya camp has also stated that she is continuing her real estate career and expanding her brand with a vintage lingerie line that was released in 2015. She also continues to support her daughter Koi, who is in the process of launching her own child lip gloss and haircare line.
