Matthew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyoncé Knowles, is defending himself against claims that he is not taking care of his son whom he had outside of his marriage to the famed singer's mother.
While Knowles was married to Beyoncé's mother Tina, he allegedly had an extramarital affair that with a woman named Alexsandra Wright, which resulted in their 3-year-old son named Nixon. Now, Wright's brother Jonathan Wright is telling Radar Online that Knowles owes $24,000 in child support and refuses to meet his son.
"I find it kind of odd that somebody that's proven as somebody's biological father has never ever seen their son," Jonathan told Radar Online. "And when they're a wealthy individual, it's odd that they would be a deadbeat dad."
However, Knowles' representatives are speaking out against the claims.
"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 told S2S magazine. "At this point, Mr. Knowles' financial advisers indicate that he is current concerning that obligation."
While Knowles has since remarried former model and realtor Gena Charmaine last summer, the member from Knowles' legal team has gone on to say that he keeps up with his commitments to his son.
"Mr. Knowles takes his obligation related to the support of his son very seriously," Ken told S2S magazine. "To that end, Mr. Knowles has consistently provided support during all periods for which he has been legally obligated."
Despite the speculation surrounding his son, Knowles has never hidden the fact that his famed daughter Beyonce can still bring a tear to his eye.
"When I see her perform, I am so proud. It reminds me of when she was a kid. I know all of her dreams have come true," Knowles said earlier this year while on HLN's The Showbiz Countdown. "It makes me so proud to see her- an incredible talent. I can tell that special thing when Beyoncé's really happy. It's a certain way she dances, it's a certain smile that she has. And I saw that. It brought tears to my eyes."
