Matthew Knowles Gets Hit With 71k In Back Child Support, Labeled A Deadbeat Dad

Mathew Knowles, or if you’re unfamiliar with him by name, Beyonce’s father, has been many things over the course of history, but now has “deadbeat” dad to add to that list. 

So this isn’t Matt’s  first time being called out for family matters; but this time he is being called names! 

Apparently he tried to silence his baby momma. Yes! He has a 5-year-old daughter who goes by Koi. She was born in 2010 which, if our memory serves us right, he was still with Ms. Tina! 

So anyways, it’s alleged by a Houston family court judge the that he slid her $225k in hush money to keep things quiet and clear of child support after she told him she was carrying a belly full of his child. 

Judge David D. Farr, in his ruling, wrote, “Mr. Knowles knew of his paternity in September 2009 and clearly sought to avoid the establishment of a support obligation based primarily on the tolling agreement and the payment of monies pursuant to said agreement, which the court can only reasonably conclude was hush money.” 

Back in 2014, that hush money wasn’t enough for Koi’s mother anymore because she sued Mat over paternity. Since then, they’ve been battling each other in the courts. 

Where does that leave Matt now? Well in the most recent reported ruling, the judge sided with Koi’s mother, ordering Matt to cough up $7.8k in back child support PLUS interest, on top of his $1,496 in regular monthly child support payments.

That’s not it though. He also is responsible for paying Koi’s child support and her mother’s $50k in attorney fees. 

You win some and you lose some! Hopefully he spends as much time with little Koi as he is money.

How are y’all feeling about the judge’s ruling?! Let’s chat below!
