Beyonce

Half-Brother Needs Food Stamps to Eat

Dad's the Bad Guy

EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce's dad is so far behind on child support payments for his illegitimate kid ... his baby mama is destitute and has to use food stamps to survive.

We're told Alexsandra Wright hasn't seen any money from Mathew Knowles since we posted our story back in December -- when he allegedly owed $24K. We're told he now owes $32,135.90.

Wright -- whose son is Beyonce's half-brother -- is now on public assistance ... and gets $300 a month on a state-issued EBT card to pay for food and other expenses.

Sources tell us Wright went to court for help ... but the judge is noodling over exactly what to do.

As we previously reported ... Knowles insists he's not a deadbeat dad ... and has blamed a clerical error for the delinquency.

Ummmm didn't her a$$ have a job before she got pregnant oh yea that right she was his assistant! Dumb a$$ that's what she gets! Bey is only responsible for taking care of get child not the illegitimate child of her child not her father's side hoe he cheated with while married to her mother! So sad the bastard child will suffer for the dirty deeds of his side whore mother and dog ass dad!!

i fail to see why we need to know this?? can boyonce do anything about it?? NO, her father is grown man, she has her own family with a husband who sticks around!! when she was a kid he probably did the same thing to her mother. i say leave boyonce's name out of it and make her father the responsible person he should be!!!

Why does this lady feel she is going to profit from sleeping with and getting knocked up by a married man? Yes he should take care of his responsibility but her hardship is called KARMA!!!

Maybe she should have thought about all that BEFORE she got pregnant. She more then likely thought she would see big money but the idiot didn't consider that this man is broke and it is his DAUGHTERS and ex WIFE's money he was spending.

Now let's get this right: before she got knocked up by Knowles, she must have been a successful professional making a good income, but her career got cut short because she deliberately had a baby by Knowles which resulted in her becoming dependent on Knowles for her entire income...NOT!!! Get a job, lady, and may the Lord bless you.

Beyonce' is NOT responsible for her father's infedelity; THE WOMAN KNEW HE WAS A MARRIED MAN WHEN SHE SLEPT WITH HIM and probably thought through HIS "persuaisive lies and charm" he had a whole lot of money as Beyonce's manager; however, he cheated on MOM and she dumped her father as his manager and now JayZ manager's her ... Beyonce's husband.

HE MADE HIS BED, NOW HE MUST LIE IN IT!

So what does this have to do with Beyonce! Is she expected to pay her father's whore? She broke up a family, now she should go and get a job.
