Knowles, 63, is no stranger to paternity troubles. After actress Alexsandra Wright hit him with a lawsuit in 2010, Knowles admitted he was the father of her son.
He was recently granted a cut in his child support payments to Wright, which went from $12,000 a month to about $2,500 a month after his superstar daughter fired him as her manager.
The news of his affair with Wright reportedly led to Knowles’ divorce from Beyonce’s mother, Tina.
Branscomb’s suit was filed May 30. We’ve reached out to both attorneys. Please stay with us for updates.
