Mathew Knowles’ son, Nixon, allegedly homeless

The drama continues for Mathew Knowles and his baby’s mother, Alexsandra Wright, who is now claiming that she and her son Nixon are on the verge of being homeless.

Recently, Wright sat down with In Touch magazine where she claimed that without Knowles’ $12,000 per month support, she and her son will be forced to trade in their Los Angeles pad for a local homeless shelter.

“Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister Beyoncé. I can’t imagine how Beyoncé feels knowing she has a homeless brother. I know if I were in the same position, I would reach out. Maybe she is too busy.”

You may recall that Wright was demanding $12,000 a month, which Knowles claimed he could not afford after Beyoncé fired him in 2011, making his yearly income plummet from $3 million a year to nearly nothing. Luckily for Knowles everything added up, reducing his monthly obligation to $2,485 a month. As a result of his reduction, Knowles won’t have to pay a penny for almost two years.

While many question Wright’s motive and feel that this is just a ploy to further embarrass the father of her child, Wright is claiming financial distress as she has already blown through the support she received from Mathew prior to the new judgement. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie

    She shoukd not be trying to drag Beyonce in to this. Beyonce shouldn’t have to pay her father’s mistakes. Plus she has her own child and family to take care of.

    Jessa – that’s the part of this stupid story that pisses me off the most. Her bringing Bey and Solange into the mess she created. Trying to shame/extort them into giving her money or seeing their brother. Yes, he is their step brother but does she really think that trying to hurt them in the press is going to make them take an interest in the little boy or give her money when his own father hasn’t really seen him? I know this entire situation is really sad, that boy didn’t ask to be born – they both were in the wrong for messing around like they were. But if a man doesn’t want to see his child, nothing – no shaming, no anger – no talking about it in the press is going to make him change. As a matter of fact, Matthew is remarried to someone else!! So I think she got checkmated all around. She lost the man and the money!! I lost so much respect for her (not that I had that much in the first place) when she changed her tune about Bey and Solange. At first she said that the baby was her responsibility and that she didn’t hold Bey or Solange responsible for her mistake. She even wrote an open letter to Tina saying she was sorry and asking for forgiveness. Now all these months later she’s done a 180 degree turn and she’s trying to use Bey and Solange as a tool to stay in the news media, trying to extort money from them because either Matthew isn’t giving her what she feels she deserves or she thinks that with enough bad publicity Bey or Solange will write her a check. I don’t think so! The way she’s acting is really shameful and disgusting. I know she’s only trying to feed and protect her son but she has the ability to work, she worked before, why can’t she get a job and support her son.

    $12,000 a month and she has already blow through it? Mathewvhas already paid up his child support for a few years. $12,000 a month she should’ve been buying a house. She isn’t entitled to anything until those years are gone. With $2,485 she will have to lower her standards or find her a damn good job. Poor thing thought she was going to live off of Beyonce’s money forever.
