Mathew Knowles' Baby Mama


And Now He'll Pay

1/21/2013 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0118-matthew-knowles-nixon-alexsandra-wrightBeyonce's dad Mathew Knowles emailed an ominous threat to the mother of his 2-year-old son -- or so the woman claims, and now she's gunning for him in court ... TMZ has learned.

Knowles' baby mama Alexsandra Wright filed legal docs, asking the family court judge to up her child support to cover expenses for security to protect their kid.  Mathew is currently on the hook for $12k a month.

Wright claims she needs security because of a "threatening" email Knowles sent her back in September 2011, in which he wrote, "You hurt my family. There's a price to pay."

According to the docs, Wright also wants additional dough to cover expenses for a secure, private school.

Sources close to Knowles tell TMZ ...  he faithfully pays child support, adding the only reason he hasn't paid expenses for schooling is because they haven't agreed on the school.

We're told Knowles thinks Wright's latest legal move could backfire because his income has drastically decreased since the original order was issued.  As you know, Beyonce gave him walking papers in 2011.

Knowles believes the judge could actually reduce his monthly payments.

Family is all trash,
mother designing over priced slutty ghetto clothes,
father using daughters to earn $$,
fake ass daughter firing dad over $$
and yet the simple minded fools still follow and idolize them.
This family is second to s*** kardashions

Although I agree 12K is a bit much a month! However, if he made sure that Beyonce,Kelly and Solange attended private schools when younger and he was caking in 100 grand or more at zerox! Then why shouldn't this lil guy reap the same lavish childhood that they did??? IJS

This woman and many others around she's who gets preggers! I highly doubt she's the first to say matty screwed her. And believe me Tina knew he was that as well that's how she met him! Because if my memory serves correct isn't Kelly 7 months older than Bey!! She took him from Kelly's mom.. How you meet him is how you loose em!! KARMA

IF she's been receiving $12K/month since 2011, why is she in a financial bind after two missed payments? Pulls out calculator: that's $288,000 over a two year period. I know childcare is expensive; buta two year old receiving $12K/month can't survive two missed payments without putting you in a financial bind? #itch-please!

Ever think maybe Beyonce fired him so they couldn't order a large amount of child support? My baby's dad works under the table too so he doesn't have to pay a lot.
