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.

Hmm, let me get this right. You can't support yourself but you think its a good idea to bring a child into the world when you can't provide for yourself? This is what's wrong with society.

It's not Beyoncé's problem that her broke ass father had kids he can't support.

Anyone else would be thrown in jail -- why is the Judge still muttering over what to do? The public (tax payers) should NOT be paying for Mathew's "mistake"... What a disgusting man.

Being that J-Z (ex drug dealer that shot his own brother) made a living rapping about hoes/beaches and B made hers lip syncing and signing about blow jobs; surely they have give the lowlife a helping hand. Afterall , he did make the HS dropout what she is today.

How do you guys know that she doesn't have a job. Working people also receive them. It always seems to be the woman's fault. This man has money and plenty of it so he should be doubly ashamed that he's doing this
