Mathew Knowles, father and former manager of music superstar Beyoncé, has been hit with a second paternity suit, this time from a former lingerie model who claims he is the father of her 4-year-old daughter.

TaQoya Branscomb, 30, filed suit in May, requesting that 63-year-old Knowles take a DNA test and pay child support and attorney's fees. Branscomb insists that Knowles is the father of her daughter, who was born in Harris County, Texas, in 2010, according to BuzzFeed.

Branscomb told TMZ that she used to work as a model but is now employed as a real estate agent.

Tina Knowles, Beyoncé's mother, filed for divorce in December 2009, roughly a month after her husband's name appeared in a paternity suit filed by actress Alexsandra Wright. The divorce ended their nearly 30-year marriage.

In the Wright case, Mathew Knowles acknowledged his paternity to Wright's 4-year-old son, Nixon, and a judge later reduced his child support payments from $12,000 a month to $2,400 a month after he was dismissed as his daughter's manager in 2011.

Beyoncé addressed the split in her HBO documentary "Life is but a Dream," which aired last year.

"I'm feeling very empty because of my relationship with my dad," the singer said. "And I'm so fragile at this point and I feel like my soul has been tarnished. Life is unpredictable but I feel like I had to move on, and not work with my dad. And I don't care if I don’t sell one record. It's bigger than the record; it's bigger than my career."
