Beyonce’s Dad Gets to Take 3-Year Break From Paying Child Support

Mathew knowles says he overpaid in child support

Beyonce’s dad and former Destiny’s Child manager, Mathew Knowles, just caught a huge break as a judge ordered him to stop paying child support for about 3 1/2 years.

Knowles and his former lover Alexsandra Wright have been in and out of court for months trying to determine how much Knowles owed Wright in unpaid child support for his 3-year-old son.

The first legal battle kicked off when Wright accused Knowles of falling behind on his child support.

Well as it turns out, the judge determined that Knowles has given Wright more than enough money in the past because he was “overpaying” on his child-support payments.

A few weeks ago, a judge ruled that Knowles’ payments should be reduced to $2,485 a month based on a steep decrease in his income.

Well, Knowles went back before the judge again and argued that he should have never been paying more than that to begin with. Back in February of 2013, he had been ordered to pay $12,000 a month and had actually been making those payments despite his decrease in income.

The judge agreed and has credited Knowles for the amount he overpaid, which comes in at roughly $11,000.

With the new child support payments set so low, that means it could be another 3 1/2 years before Knowles has to give Wright another dime.

According to Wright, Knowles has already not been in his child’s life whatsoever and now he has been granted the right to not help pay for his child’s upbringing either.

Mathew Knowles ordered to stop paying child support for three years He isn’t all in the clear yet, however.

Reports recently surfaced that revealed Wright is on welfare, and, according to TMZ, welfare officials usually come after the father when a mother is on public assistance.

If that’s the case, Knowles would still end up paying Wright something before the year is over.

The ongoing legal battle over child support has led to some questioning whether R&B megastar Beyonce should get involved.

While the 3-year-old boy may technically be Beyonce’s half-brother, it’s important to note that the child was conceived when Mathew was still married to Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles.

Reports claim that Beyonce has never even met the little boy nor does she have a relationship with Wright.

It may seem a little unethical to expect a man’s daughter to clean up the financial mess he made when he decided to be unfaithful in his marriage.

    Wright needs to get a job! She was well aware that Knowles was a married man before she got pregnant. Beyoncé is not responsible for this mess and should not get involved!!

    Alexander Foster Sr , all children needs to be taken care of, but if you have other daughters would you not be very happy to have a son ?

  9. Lyndon Allen I try to be understood whenever I reply lets try again.Being a Father of 3 Sons and 2 Daughters all raised by my late wife and myself.I have to say there is more to planting a seed and jumping for joy when it peeks out of the soil.there is watering pruning and sun light not just fertilizer

    Is that a whine of utter hypocrisy? This whole evil Patriarchal system is against us- women! Why does she even have the mental conditioning to need a man like that? Because of this bullshit Patriarchy attacking women trying to mentally control them will trillions in advertising manipulation and cultural oppression since their babies. Even Beyonce, she's successful because she has a talent, but's it's all about her beauty. That Time Magazine cover was a disgrace! I quote Bell Hooks in saying that if she selected that look herself, she is colluding in the construction of herself as a slave." But back to child support, the Law and common decency is that you give a percent of what you have to your kids. The more you make, the more you give. Greed twd one's own children is despicable. .
