Mathew Knowles has been put on blast by his former mistress Alexsandra Wright regarding his missed child support payments. And as of now, he owes Wright over $31K in back child support.

Originally Beyonce’s father was ordered to pay Alexsandra a whopping $12K a month, but he claimed in court documents that he can’t afford to make those kind of payments since his superstar daughter fired him and opted to start managing her own music career.

But it looks like the judge is siding with Mathew, and his child support payments have been slashed dramatically.

TMZ reports:

Knowles — who made $3 million a year before his daughter fired his a*s in 2011 — now says he pulled in a relative paltry $127K in 2013.

And, Knowles says, even though his income has been slashed, his expenses remain sky high — $51,000 a month. To make up the shortfall, he’s liquidating his assets.

The family court judge apparently validated his financial plight, and reduced his child support to $2,485 a month.



We have to wonder how Alexsandra is taking the judge’s decision considering she just told the media recently that Mathew’s unpaid child support payments have forced her to rely on food stamps.


  1. This woman really thought she would get a payday when she starting sleeping with this man while he was married. It’s funny how things worked out.

  2. I’m sure she had no idea Beyonce would fire Mathew after Tina found out abut the affair but she’s got to take some responsibility in all of this too. She should have never slept with a married man to begin with. She’s out here doing all these interviews and tipping off the blogs, but because of when the child was conceived there will never be peace. Smh.

  3. That’s what she gets. Now she needs to get off her butt and get a damn job. It ain’t Mathew’s responsibility to pay her bills. She has to take care of her child too.

  4. And all of this could have been avoided if these two people respected marriage. I don’t have sympathy for either one of them.

  5. That’s the thing about sleeping with married men. Rarely does it work out for the best and someone always ends up getting hurt. In this case a marriage ended, two daughters fell out with their father, a child was born but now will be ignored because his momma was too busying trying to get her hands in the pot to consider how terribly this would turn out. Smh.

  6. So will she stop her smear campaign now because it’s clear Matty gives not one f-ck about her or this baby. And bad press won’t change any of that. It’s messed up but it is what it is.

  7. Unless she is living in LA you do not need food stamps if you getting 2485 month just from child support. If she at least get a job a McDonalds or WalMart she’ll bring in an extra 800-1000. Her monthly income would be around the average teacher salary. She just trying to look for a huge payday thinking she was going be sitting on six figures a year on child support. GUESS she was proven wrong big time.
