Mathew Knowles is the father of Beyonce. He had a child while married to Beyonces mother. Of course I dont know all the details but what do you think of this situation. He does not want anything to do with the child but he does pay child support. He was ordered to pay $12,000 per month(not a typo). He paid it for 6-8 months. They went back to court and the judge reduced it to about 2600 per month. Rectroactively. So he does not have to pay child support for 2 1/2-3 years. Meanwhile bm must have thought money was coming for 18 years. She spent all the money and now receives foodstamps and lives in a trailor provided by a company who helps homeless women. Trailor looks nice- saw it on inside edition-. Do you think the courts should order mathew knowles to at least contribute something now so his child can be in a better situation? BM does not work. If a bm knowingly misspends money should men help if it affects the child.
