Matthew Knowles, You Might Be The Father

Matthew Knowles birthed the QUEEN that is Beyonce (and hot mess that is Solange), but apparently he’s been making a string of illegitimate children. The latest woman to come forth and demand child support is TaQoya Branscomb. According to filed papers, Knowles and Branscomb conceived the baby girl in 2010. The plot thickens: that was the same year Matthew Knowles and Tina Knowles, Beyonce’s mother, split! Oh, and did we forget to mention Branscomb was best friends with Solange? (We suggest you take the stairs and avoid all elevators, TaQoya.)

Have you ever had a parent get together with one of your best friends?

Lana Del Rey and Her Boyfriend Broke Up… But Uh, He Didn’t Get the Memo

When Noah told Allie, “It still isn’t over!” he was deemed a cinematic hero. Well, now that Lana Del Rey’s rocker (ex?) boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill is saying it—it’s creepy. Singer Del Rey recently started that the couple had broken up. “We are currently not together… He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We’ll see how it goes.” O’Neill was asked about his new-found relationship status, and he replied, “It’s not over. It’s not over, don’t believe what you read.” Sounds pretty over to us, buddy.

Have you ever had an ex who just couldn’t accept the break-up?
