Beyonce's Dad Slapped with Paternity Suit

10/2/2009 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned a woman has filed a paternity case against Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles.

Matthew Knowles

We've learned Alexsandra Wright filed the case in L.A. County Superior Court. Wright lives in L.A. -- she works in the name-branding business. We're told she's in her late 30s.

Wright, who is 6-months pregnant, filed the case last week, alleges Knowles is the father. Sources say Wright is repped by Neal Hersh, who is currently repping Lamar Odom in the prenup negotiations with Khloe Kardashian.

Mathew has been married to Tina Knowles since 1980.

Mathew could not be immediately reached for comment. Ditto Neal Hersh.

Usually when the accused can't be reached for comment = guilty. Go ahead and get the DNA test and go after what's yours, honey; he has a bad rep anyway for philandering...

If He did have an affair with someone else he should have been careful and he should have known better. Why wouldn't the woman want his baby, just think she will get good child support! and also, he and his wife should have gotten a divorce if they were unhappy, but sometimes people do stay married for appearences.
And another thing, i get so tired of people saying bad things about beyonce. how do they know? she is a far better role model to all young women. no matter what the nationality is, than brittney spears, lindsey lohan, paris hilton etc., people are usualyy jealous of their own lives when they say hateful mean things about other people.

To # 12, Who give a flying ()*&&*^%% about Mr. Knowles accomplishments. So what, he an educated man, a man who obiviously didn't give a damm about his family of wife. Ms. Wright is in the same category as Tiger Woods many sluts and whores, with one exception, she looks like a )_*(&*(^^% dog.

And no, I don't know the Knowles. I am just plain ordinary folk who is tired of men like Tiger Woods and Mathew Knowles, who think that they can cheat on their wives without consequences. I hope Beyonce's mother takes half of everything he has, as she should. Two Timer no good Bastard. After all why should Beyone pay for her half sibling with her earnings?

To all the Damm Cheating Whore Men out there, you need to keep your zippers zipped. It's dangerous to cheat these day. Just ask Tiger Woods and the late football player who hooked up with a dellusional, psychopathic fool who took his and her lives.

Women are getting tired of men )(*&(&*^*%^ing them around, and we are standing up to the sh)(*(*&^!!!!
Sorry Beyonce!

I know people that's been in the music industry so I've heard about his womanizing ways. Not a surprise, but surprised that it took this long to catch up with him.
