| No TrackBacks

It's now official that Beyonce Knowles has a half-brother, as the result of her father's paternity test has been made public. The Houston Chronicle reports that the result of the DNA test shows that Mathew Knowles is the father of Alexsandra Wright's newborn baby, Nixon.

Ms. Wright Alleges that Nixon was conceived during an 18-month fling she had with Mr. Knowles, who is still married to his wife Tina Knowles. As reported in an earlier blog post, Ms. Wright filed a paternity lawsuit against Mr. Knowles last October. At a hearing last month in Los Angeles, Mr. Knowles was ordered to pay $8,200 a month in temporary child support until a paternity test came through. And now that the paternity test shows that Mr. Knowles is the father, it's possible that he'll be ordered to pay even more money through regular child support payments.

It's rumored that family law attorneys are now in the process of negotiating Nixon's child support. Yet, Mr. Knowles is also in another hot bed of legal mess with his wife. Associated Press reports that after 30 years of marriage, Ms. Knowles filed for a divorce once rumors circulated about an affair between Mr. Knowles and Ms. Wright. The divorce papers were filed in Harris County, Texas.

In a statement provided by Associated Press, the couple stated "The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. We remain friends, parents, and business partners. If anyone is expecting an ugly messy fight, they will be sadly disappointed."

Lets just hope that his statement holds true once the legal divorce battle with Texas family law attorneys is through.
