The man who made Bey famous early on, Matthew Knowles, had cheated on the girls’ mother, Tina Knowles, and had love children. One, Koi Knowles headed to her first day of second grade and in a sweet picture, you can see she bears some resemblance to her superstar sister.
Koi, 4, is the daughter of Taqoya Branscomb, who is based in Texas. She has said her daughter loves to sing and dance. A DNA test proved paternity, and the results came out 99.998% that Matthew was the biological father. Taqoya claimed Matthew had told her at the time he had had a vasectomy.
In 2010, it was also revealed he was the father of actress Alexsandra Wright's son. That revelation caused Tina Knowles to divorce him after 31 years.
Beyonce and Solange didn't attend their father's wedding when he re-married to former model Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas in 2013. Tina Knowles remarried actor Richard Lawson in 2015.
