Beyoncé’s Dad Faces Child Support Karma

Is it possible to feel sympathy of an ogre? Who can feel empathy for someone who stepped outside of their marriage to engage in an 18-month relationship that carelessly fathered a child? The one I speak of is Matthew Knowles.

Is it possible to feel sympathy of an ogre? Who can feel empathy for someone who stepped outside of their marriage to engage in an 18-month relationship that carelessly fathered a child? The one I speak of is Matthew Knowles. His karma behind cheating on Beyoncé’s mother Tina grows.

According to The Associated Press, the former manager of Beyoncé successfully convinced a Los Angeles Superior Court judge that he was broke after being fired by his daughter. His $12,000-a-month child support was reduced to $2,000 a month.

Angry about the decision, Knowles' actress/baby momma Alexsandra Writer, spoke to Inside Edition last week exposing her struggles in getting Matthew Knowles to pay the $32,000 in back child support he owes.  She even said that Knowles suggested she allow Beyoncé and Jay Z to take care of the child.

“I don’t expect Beyoncé to take accountability. It’s not her problem. It’s not her situation,” she said. “Beyoncé and Jay Z have never attacked me. They’ve [never] done anything wrong to me. They’ve [never] been negative at all,” she said.


Yes, his bankroll has been greatly reduced since he was fired by Beyoncé in 2011, but isn’t it his responsibility to maintain a level of income to pay for his own child? Yes, $12,000 is a lot of cash, but this is the man behind Queen B, one of the biggest stars in the world. Perhaps Karma has emptied his bank account. Perhaps he's rock bottom. Especially since the judge also required Knowles to pay $15,000 in legal fees accumulated by the mother of his son.
