Earlier this month, Beyoncé was accused of having a prosthetic baby bump and had to dispel rumors. As if things couldn’t get worse for the multitalented entertainer, more controversy surrounds her and her family.
While still married to Beyoncé’s mother Tina, Mathew Knowles had an affair with Alexsandra Wright that reportedly went on for 18 months. After living together in Beverly Hills, the affair resulted in Wright conceiving. She filed a paternity suit in October 2009 after he denied he was the father.
After winning the suit, Tina, Mathew’s wife filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage. This also resulted in Beyoncé ending her business relationship with him.
In an interview with Star Magazine, Wright claims Mathew asked her to give up their baby so Beyoncé and Jay-Z can raise it as their own.
“My first thought when he asked me if I would give up our child to Beyoncé and Jay-Z was, ‘Are you out of your mind?’,” Alexsandra said,” Nothing in the world, no amount of money would make me give up my child, you can’t buy my child from me! I don’t know why he suggested it. Maybe Mathew thought money could buy anything.”
He also offered to pay her to leave his name off the birth certificate, which she declined.
She believes Beyoncé had no idea of her father’s scheme to protect his image.
“I don’t believe that Beyoncé or anybody else has a clue about what was flying out of Mathew’s mouth. I don’t think it was anybody but Mathew.”
It’s proven by DNA tests that Nixon, who is now 20 months, is Mathew’s son. Sadly, he has never met his father. According to Wright, Mathew desperately wanted a child, and “prayed for a boy”. Luckily, Wright’s boyfriend, Harvey Wheldon (of “Celebrity Fit Club”) has assumed the father role in Nixon’s life.
