It seems Beyonce had much reason to continue her journey sans her father with his baby mama drama resurfacing.
While Matthew Knowles was still married to now ex Tina Knowles—of over 30 years—he fathered a child, Nixon Alexander Knowles, with Alexsandra Wright during their 18-month affair. With ‘he said she said’ floating around the net about Ms. Wright, she decided to sit down with Inside Edition to tell her side of the story.
More than anything I respected him as a friend and a colleague and more than anything our relationship grew out of that.
After it was determined Matthew was the father he was ordered to pay child support but opted not to and now the sum has totaled around $32k. Alex tells the host, Jim Moret of her frustration with the his neglective attitude
This is his child, its a boy, its been 5 years. I’ve never spoken, I’ve been respectful of our relationship. I’ve never talked about it or stepped out of line. I followed the letter to the law, the stipulated judgments to the law. It feels like he’s a little bit of an outlaw and has chosen to not acknowledge any of it and punish me all the way to the finish line.
According to her, Nixon rarely sees his father and due to his delay in support she’s filed for public assistance. She tells Moret:
You’ve seen him more then he has—More than anything he raised two children and was very active in their lives and they turned out very well. So why he’s choosing to not acknowledge his only son, I don’t know. It’s disappointing and also what’s disappointing is that I’m the only parent taking responsibility at this point.
As the plot thickens she shares that before his eldest daughter had Blue Ivy, he wanted to give his son to Jay and Bey so they could raise him as their child.
But despite papa Knowles actions, there’s no ill feelings towards the megastar.
I don’t expect Beyonce to take accountability. It’s not her problem. It’s not her situation, this is Matthew’s situation solely and I think he should stand up and take responsibility.
There is no word from the father’s camp in regards to the situation except that he’s not a “deadbeat dad.”
