Exclusive: Mathew Knowles Alleged Baby Mama, Taqoya Branscomb Slams Prostitution Allegations



TaQoya Branscomb, the woman who came forward in July claiming that Mathew Knowles is the father of her 4-year-old daughter, is slamming reports that she was arrested for prostitution in 2007.

“The reports are FALSE. I was charged with not having appropriate license/attire in Houston. You can not hold a real estate license in the state of Texas with that type of charge in your record,” Branscomb told HipHollywood exclusively.

 Media Take Out reported on Sunday that Branscomb was charged by the District Attorney for misdemeanor prostitution after “unlawfully knowingly agree to engage in sexual conduct, namely, sexual intercourse, to-writ, straight sex, with D.Patterson, for a fee.” Per the gossip site, Branscomb was sentenced to 6 months probation, and was ordered to submit to random drug testing, complete a AIDS awareness class and take a educational skill level class.

She’s Gotta Have It: Is Ilfenesh Hadera Spike Lee’s New Muse?



We all know Spike Lee loves working with the same actors over and over again. And in some cases new up-and-comers who go on to be Hollywood A-listers. Think Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson.

Now it seems it’s Ilfenesh Hadera’s turn. The actress of Ethiopian decent has worked with Spike Lee four times: in the 2011 Mike Tyson TV movie Da Brick, in 2013’s Oldboy, in Chiraq playing Ms. McCloud and in his upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It.

Hadera told us she believes it’s because of Lee’s commitment to diversity that he tends to hire the same actors multiple times.

“If you look at his body of work you see he’s worked with Rosario over and over, [John] Turturro over and over, Mekhi Phifer over and over so he finds talent, new talent and gives them a chance and if more directors did that maybe we would be more represented in the media … God bless him for that,” she said.

Now with 30+ years and countless films under his belt, Lee is bringing his first feature, She’s Gotta Have It, back to life, in a 10-episode Netflix binge debuting Nov. 23.

Hadera, who plays Opal Gilstrap in the series, told us Lee had hinted that he would be bringing his 1986 directorial debut to Netflix and wanted her to be apart of it.

“We had worked together a lot and he had been giving me little hints that this was in the works so I was like let me go back and watch [She’s Gotta Have It] again.”

Like the original, SGHI follows Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) a twenty-something woman living in Brooklyn, New York exploring her sexual identity as she juggles a host of colorful suitors.

As for if this is Hadera’s final time working with Lee, we think not. 2017 has already been an amazing year for the 5’10 beauty with roles on the big and small screen in Baywatch, Billions and Master Of None.
