Beyonce's Dad

I'm NOT A

Deadbeat Dad

EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce's father is hitting back against accusations he's a deadbeat dad ... he claims he paid what he owes in child support ... it's just a paperwork screw up.

TMZ broke the story ... Mathew Knowles' baby mama Alexsandra Wright says he's behind on 2 months ... to the tune of $24K.

According to sources familiar with the situation, a few of the payments were only slightly late, but past the deadline for being credited, so it appeared Mathew didn't fork over what he owed.
.
Here's the problem... Mathew is now behind for  December -- payment was due on the 1st.  We're told he plans to pay up before it officially becomes delinquent.

Think of it as paying your rent, only with a kid.

We've reached out to Wright but haven't heard back.

Paying it late is still an ******* thing to do. His children deserve that support and being late is disrespectful. What a douche.

what is CRAZY is that he is forced to pay $24,000 PER MONTH. This baby momma along with all other baby mommas should be forced to provide receipts proving they actually spent that much money to raise that kid ... then split the bill 50/50....... and it should not include the cost of rent for a house they already have to provide themselves ...... only the 1 additional room.

People always come up to me and ask, "Esteban, why you always sticking your neck out for women?" I say, "Obvious, yo, to get some!!"

Then they're like, "Esteban, why you always sticking your neck out for black men?" And I say, "Obvious, the ladies love black men!!"

Isn't he just habitually late on his payment but is current?

And isn't the real bottom line that the baby mama knew he was current but still had the media run with this story?

She did receive the checks after all. He should pay it on time, but being 15 days late and not paying at all are two COMPLETELY different things.

Twelve grand a month to raise one kid. It must just slay millions of single mothers raising kids with a fraction of that, if they get any at all from the fathers. Lesson: Make sure you get knocked-up by someone rich...famous helps, too, because of the power of publicity.

Why do successful, rich men get with younger women? Why? How do they not know they are going to get taken to the cleaners? Unbelievable. I don't care how good she tastes...it's not worth it.

When thirty days has passed paperwork error or not, write the check and mail it. Otherwise you're a deadbeat. Being late is intentional and the first step to being a deadbeat.
