A Houston woman says that her insistence on obtaining a DNA test has enabled her to protect her daughter's future. Beginning in July, the 30-year-old woman began making accusations that the 63-year-old father of popular hip-hop artist Beyoncé Knowles is also the father of her 4-year-old daughter.
The child's mother, who is also a lingerie model, says that Matthew Knowles carried on a relationship with her which ultimately led to her daughter's birth in 2010. The woman recently revealed the results of a DNA test to reporters which confirmed Knowles ‘paternity. The child's mother says that she is currently seeking court ordered child support payments from Knowles. Thus far, a judge has since issued a temporary order requiring Knowles to support the child in the amount of $1,500 each month.
The woman said that Knowles expressed surprise and disbelief when she informed him that she was pregnant. According to her, Knowles told the woman that a prior vasectomy prevented him from fathering a child.
This is not the first time that Knowles has been accused of having children with women other than his wife of 31 years. In fact, DNA tests also revealed that Knowles fathered another child, also born in 2010, with a 40-year-old former actress. Knowles and his wife ended their marriage in 2011 after news of his extramarital affairs became public.
Texas law requires that both parents provide support and care for their children. Establishing paternity is the crucial first step in any child support case. This applies whether you are a woman seeking child support or a man wrongly accused of fathering a child. Your Texas family law attorney can prove invaluable in assisting you through this process.
