Beyonce's father granted cut in child support

Beyonce's Dad Too Poor To Pay Child Support?

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A court has substantially cut the amount that Beyonce Knowles' father must pay in child support to an actress he had a son with.

A ruling obtained by The Associated Press shows that a Los Angeles Superior Court judge cut the amount Mathew Knowles must pay to actress Alexsandra Wright from $12,000 a month to roughly $2,500 a month.

Although Beyonce's name is not mentioned in Monday's ruling, it notes that her father's income has substantially fallen since the singer fired him as her manager in 2011.

Mathew Knowles sought a reduction in his child support payments and a hearing was held earlier this year. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon agreed with Knowles' attorneys that his income had changed, but ordered him to pay $15,000 in Wright's legal fees.

The system always benefits the woman, and that will always continue. If I had a kid with my wife and came home to her sleeping with someone else, if we get divorced, I will suffer more than her. Ive seen it happen.

First thing allow me to say I paid child support for my first son and did it with dignity and paid every penny with a happy heart. After my youngest two sons mother died I raised them mostly myself and I owe no one. If you cannot take responsibility for your own actions, you got the sex, get it cut off! Thank GOD I met and married a wonderful women to help and she never asked us for anything in return other to love and respect her!

Just be careful with women because once they open that gate to hell and you enter, you MUST pay.

How much do condoms cost? Everyone involved is wrong. He cheated on his wife, the girlfriend knew he was making big money and opsy...she got pregnant. Stop playing games and bringing children in the world for money. Get a job, use protection and mind your business.
