Mathew Knowles Responds To Deadbeat Dad Rumors

Last week, reports started swirling that Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles was $24,000 behind in his child support payments to his former mistress Alessandra Wright, with whom he fathered a child back in 2007.

However, despite the claims, Mathew’s camp is speaking out to deny that he’s team deadbeat in a recent statement to Sister 2 Sister.

“There have been several media reports [this week] suggesting that Mr. Knowles has a delinquency concerning his child support obligation to Ms. Alexsandra Wright,” Mathew’s spokesman Ken Harris stated. “At this point, Mr. Knowles’ financial advisers indicate that he is current concerning that obligation.”

In keeping with this assesment, Mathew has every intention of making his next support payment that is supposedly before the end of month. Ken added, that there’s no chance that Mathew would ever have skipped one of his monthly payments.

“Mr. Knowles takes his obligation related to the support of his son very seriously,” Ken explained. “To that end, Mr. Knowles has consistently provided support during all periods for which he has been legally obligated.”

While Mathew’s rep denied any wrong-doing on his client’s part with regard to missed child support payments, he did confirm that he Mathew and Alexsandra are in currently still the middle of some messy litigation.

Ken added, “Mr. Knowles’ child support obligation has been the subject of substantial litigation over the past year. A mediation concerning this matter has been scheduled for later this month.”

If the situation can’t be worked out in the upcoming mediation, Mathew and Alexsandra have a hearing slated for early 2014. That would hopefully resolve any outstanding issues like any adjustments or modifications to Mathew’s monthly child support payments.

Although Daddy Matty’s camp was quick to clear this up, there hasn’t been any response to little Nixon’s uncle claiming that Mathew has never even met his son. Wonder what that’s about? Hmmmmm….
