Beyonce's Dad Slapped with Paternity Suit

10/2/2009 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned a woman has filed a paternity case against Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles.

Matthew Knowles

We've learned Alexsandra Wright filed the case in L.A. County Superior Court. Wright lives in L.A. -- she works in the name-branding business. We're told she's in her late 30s.

Wright, who is 6-months pregnant, filed the case last week, alleges Knowles is the father. Sources say Wright is repped by Neal Hersh, who is currently repping Lamar Odom in the prenup negotiations with Khloe Kardashian.

Mathew has been married to Tina Knowles since 1980.

Mathew could not be immediately reached for comment. Ditto Neal Hersh.

Suzie Q,

You have it all kinds of wrong. Bill Cosby is the one who refused to take the paternity test and quietly took care of the girl for years before the story became public. Neither Bill nor Matthew would have had to deal with the allegations had they not slept with the women.

.... If it's true, at least he was with an age appropriate woman unlike so many other men, i.e, Christie Brinkley's husband.

Uh - Suzie Q #26 .... You need to get your facts straight. Bird #31 is correct. Cosby DID do the dirty - and tried to keep it covered up. So much for your defense of the WRONG person!
