I tell you, the public perception of Matthew Knowles has gone so far downhill since the days of Beyonce’s “Daddy” track on her first album. After rumors of infidelity — and then proof of it when Alexsandra Wright got pregnant and sought child support from the man some consider to be the modern-day Joe Jackson — plus a divorce from Miss Tina, even Bey had to distance herself from her papa, at least in the public eye. The lack of father-daughter public appearances likely won’t change anytime soon now that Alexsandra is trying to stick it to Matthew again with claims that he’s been threatening her.
According to TMZ, Alexsandra is asking a family court judge to increase her child support so that she can pay for security to protect her 2-year-old son from Matthew, whom she claims has been sending her threatening emails. In September 2011 (yes, you read that year correctly), he reportedly wrote to her and said, “”You hurt my family. There’s a price to pay.”
Now, Alexsandra is trying to put her own price on Matthew, who already pays $12,000 a month in child support. I’d imagine she could find a decent bouncer already with that type of cash flowing in on a monthly basis, which is why this entire legal stunt sounds more like a case for padding her bank account than a legitimate concern for safety. After all, wouldn’t you seek a restraining order not money for personal security? There’s also a request from Alexsandra for money to cover expenses for private school for their son who, again, is only 2 years old.
Matthew seems to not be stressing this ordeal much, as TMZ reports he expects this move to completely backfire on the mother of his child considering Destiny’s Child is defunct and he hasn’t managed Beyonce for two years now. In other words, his money ain’t what it used to be so the amount of support he pays could actually be reduced once the courts start examining his finances.
Now as far as Matthew threatening somebody? Who knows. But if he really said Alexsandra hurt his family, I’m gonna need this brotha to start with the man in the mirror. Was she the one cheating on her wife? Didn’t think so.
