Beyonce’s Dad Granted Cut In Child Support Cuts

Times have been tough for Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles since the singer fired him as her manager back in 2011.

While his income has taken a mighty blow since, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has reduced his hefty $12,000-a-month child support payment to roughly $2,500 a month for his 4-year-old son with actress Alexsandra Wright, the Associated Press reports. The judge also ruled that he had to pay Wright’s legal fees, which cost $15,000.

Wright recently grabbed headlines, saying that she was forced to rely on public assistance due to Knowles owing $32,000 in child support. She spoke out last week on Inside Edition about how Knowles apparently suggested she hand over her son to Beyonce and Jay Z to raise.

“I don’t expect Beyoncé to take accountability. It’s not her problem. It’s not her situation,” she said. “Beyoncé and Jay Z have never attacked me. They’ve [never]done anything wrong to me. They’ve never been negative at all.” she said.

Bey’s mother, Tina, filed for divorce from Matthew in 2009 after he had an 18-month affair with Wright.
