Mathew Knowles baby mama Taqoya lashes out at Wendy Williams

Mathew Knowles second baby mama Taqoya Branscomb has lashed out at Talk show host Wendy Williams after Wendy called her an opportunist, said she's exploiting her 4 year old daughter, and urged her to give up on her daughter's fledgling showbiz career because it won't go anywhere...

Taqoya tells Rumor Fix

“Wendy is out of line for talking about my child’s potential, and how she won’t be as famous as Beyoncé when her a** has no idea.” 
“She is encouraging bullying and hating just because of Beyoncé’s status. Also who’s to say if Mathew will or will not be in Koi’s life in the future? I’m fighting for my daughter’s rights so she won’t have to fight for them eighteen years from now. To say that my daughter isn’t going to be a successful entertainer because of the way she was conceived is like saying man-looking, former crackheads could never have their own talk show.” Ouch!!
