Solange’s reps tell TMZ, that she and Taquoya Branscomb are not friends, do not know each other and the picture floating around is just a random fan photo.
TaQoya Bransomb, the latest woman to come forward with a claim that Mathew Knowles is the father of her child, reportedly used to be friends with his daughter Solange.
Sources tell TMZ, that Bransomb, 30, and the “Lovers in the Parking Lot” singer met through a stylist back in 2008, and hung out on several occasions.
The unidentified source claims papa Knowles, 63, knew that TaQoya and Solange, 28, were friends; however Solange was not aware that things between her father and Bransomb had become more than platonic.
A Houston area resident, Bransomb filed a lawsuit in Texas last month asking the courts to force Mathew Knowles to submit to a DNA test to prove the paternity of her two year old daughter.
In a statement to Hip Hollywood, Bransomb wrote:
“First I’d like to thank my family, my friends, and the public for their love and support. I have taken the necessary legal action against Mathew Knowles. With that being said… it’s in my best interest for this to remain a private matter for now… Above all I am a mother and my daughter’s well being is my only priority. It was never my intention for this to become a public matter. The pictures you see are in no way a representation of who I am. They were taken 10 years ago… And I am now a hard working successful single mother. Honestly I just want what is best for my daughter.”

If the child is proven to be Knowles’, it will mark his second child to be born outside of his marriage to his now ex-wife Tina Knowles, who filed for divorce in 2009, after 30 years of marriage. Mathew had an affair with Canadian born actressAlexsandra Wright, who gave birth to his son, Nixon in 2010.
