Looks like Beyonce's married dad is still a fan of the single ladies.

Mathew Knowles was slapped with a paternity suit this week, TMZ reported. He's accused of fathering a young actress' love child -- even though he's been married for over 20 years to Beyonce's mother Tina.

Alexsandra Wright, an actress who appeared in a bit part on the TV show "Scrubs," filed the paternity case against Knowles in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming Knowles is the father of her baby.

Wright, said to be in her late 30s, is six months pregnant, TMZ reported.

Beyonce's father, who also managed her career with chart-topping girl group Destiny's Child, married Tina Knowles in 1980. Tina and Beyonce are co-designers on their clothing line, the House of Dereon.

Wright is reportedly being represented in the paternity suit by Neal Hersh, who's negotiating the prenuptial agreement between Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian.
