I knew it was only a matter of time before someone dropped hints that Beyonce should take care of her baby brother.
Dad Mathew Knowles – who made $3M in 2011 when he was still Bey’s manager – asked a judge to reduce the monthly child support payments he was supposed to make to Alexsandra Wright for their four-year-old son, Nixon Knowles. Knowles cited a much lower annual salary of $127,000 last year but monthly expenses of still $51,000. The judge complied and retroactively lowered Knowles’ payments from $12,000 to $2,485.
Wright now says she struggling – only receiving $300 in food stamps – and no one has helped them find a home, so she’s considering a homeless shelter.
“Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister, Beyonce,” Wright tells In Touch. “I can’t imagine how Beyonce 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.”
And there it is, y’all.
Now I’m not so sure Beyonce should feel some sense of obligation. And I’m definitely not saying Wright is on her own simply because Nixon was conceived while Bey’s parents were still married. I say the child is always innocent. But we all know what usually happens when it comes to kids outside the marriage.
But is that even relevant? I’m pretty sure child support along with the welfare of the child is the responsibility of the parent, not the girlfriend, mother, or wealthy daughter. Even Wright admitted that much back in February.
“I don’t expect Beyonce to take accountability,” she told Inside Edition. “It’s not her problem. It’s not her situation.”
Now you tell us Clutchettes and Gents: Should Beyonce make this her issue now that her little brother is possibly heading to a shelter?
