Beyoncé “Refuses to Meet Her Little Brother” Nixon? (Report)

Some serious drama in the Knowles family. Supposedly, Beyoncé refuses to acknowledge the existence of her baby brother Nixon — the product of an 18-month affair between Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles and a woman named Alexsandra Wright.

The affair and Baby Nixon’s subsequent birth broke up Mathew’s 31-year marriage to Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles. They both filed for divorce in 2011.

According to Star Magazine, Beyoncé is still not happy about her dad’s affair, and she reportedly refuses to meet her half-brother, who just celebrated his third birthday earlier this month. The tabloid notes that Mathew’s relationship with his own son isn’t that much better either.

“We had an 18 month relationship. We were in love and even lived together,” Wright tells Star. “But four months into my pregnancy, he decided he couldn’t do it — and since our son’s birth, he has tried to deny Nixon full child support. This isn’t about the money. It’s about accountability, education and providing Nixon a secure life.”

Even though Mathew Knowles doesn’t acknowledge his own son, a Los Angeles judge ordered the music executive to pay at least $8,200 in child support in 2010. A few months later a paternity test confirmed that he was the father.

Knowles is credited for starting Beyoncé’s career, and for creating Destiny’s Child, one of the biggest girl groups of all time.

It’s a shame little Nixon won’t get to meet not only his own father, but also his sisters Beyoncé and Solange, his brother-in-law Jay-Z, his nephew Juelz or his niece Blue Ivy anytime soon … or maybe ever.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this article referred to Juelz as Nixon’s “cousin,” but he is really Nixon’s “nephew.” The article has been updated to reflect the change.

    The baby didn’t do any wrong but it was conceived out of an affair.
    So why should B or any of her Family include this baby mama (who knew full well that B’s dad had family already) and her child in the family that MATTHEW and TINA built?

      It’s not the baby’s fault,and regardless he is still her half brother.The way things happen in life she may need him for a medical condition where he’s the only one who could help her.After all you can have all the money in the world, but it can’t fix everything.What if she needed a transplant and he was the only match.? I pray that does’nt happen,but in life you never know

    • awesomekingisawesome

      that is an evil way of thinking…

  • Tripple Attack

    I think the family is wrong for that because this child is innocent and doesn’t know whats going on….if anything, they should take it out of Matthew its his fault for stepping out of his marriage and putting his family through this.

      But do you feel she shoul be forced to hangout with her 3 year old half brother. She is just as innocent as him. Her father and his side piece are the only ones who are guilty. Beyonce is only human and this mess isn’t hers.

      If you knew anything about Beyonce you know how close she is to her mother. Please tell me how do you think her mother would feel about Beyonce hanging out this child and his mother. Because you best believe the mother is going to be there. Beyonce is not obligated to have a relationship with this child. When he get older she may. But did the mother think about this when she was lying down with a married man. They lived together for 18 months(I don’t think so). She knew he was married. Why wouldn’t she wait to get pregnant after he filed for divorce.SMH

      At the end of the day Mr. Knowles knew he was married because he was the one that walked down the altar and said “I do”, not the child’s mother. So don’t be so quick to just to put it all this on Nixon’s mother, of course she was wrong but the child was not. And I am sure this is not the first time he has cheated on Beyonce’s mother, it’s probably the first time he got caught and a baby came out of it.

    No, like I said, Beyonce is not obligated to have anything to do with the child, and no, it does not make her a bad person. She is not obligated to do anything for this child.. She not his mother, nor father! She has no responsible to or for this Child! His hood rat mother and father is.. She never has to speak to the child.. It is not her problem!

    No, , Beyonce is not obligated to have anything to do with the child, and no, it does not make her a bad person. She is not obligated to do anything for this child.. She not his mother, nor father! She has no responsible to or for this Child! His hood rat mother and father is.. She never has to speak to the child.. It is not her problem!

    There is no law stating that she has to spend time with him. She is not the parent of this boy. I think he will be just fine not spending time with 30 year old sister when he is only 3. I am sure babysitting isn’t on her list of things to do today.

  • Tylicious

    Juelz is Nixon’s nephew … not cousin lol

      Thanks for the heads up on the correction! The article has been fixed.

    That’s STILL her brother no matter how he came about. He is innocent and if my dad or mother had more kids by other ppl, i would want to know and see ALL my brothers and sisters. They are stuck up for acting in such a way

  • chaka

    Maybe she will reach out to him when she is ready…i’m sure it is difficult for her to see her own mother hurting as well…she is not obligated to include this child in her life…there are people who cut family members out of their lives (mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins). It is their decision to do that. She is human, she is hurt, and she is allowed to choose for herself.

    • Breana

      Agree 100%. I understand Beyonce and Solange don’t speak to their father. He needs to fix the mess he made with his children.

  • g

    beyonce should embrace her little brother after all he is her family, like it or not. i’m sure that her mother was hurt over the affair, but isn’t this childs fault. she doen’t have the friendly with the mother, but at least show some affection for her brother. mr. knowles should be ashamed for trying to disown his own child. this child might be the one who has to care for you in your old age. it’s not always about the money.

    Yes she is not obligated to be in his life. But she shouldn’t make it known in the media that she doesn’t want him around her child or don’t want to see him. If you feel that way then that’s fine, keep it to yourself. But letting it known to the world is wrong. Because when he is older he’s going to look at this and be hurt or angry about this. He is always going to have some anger towards his sisters and father. His father isn’t even in his life and probably doesn’t plan on being in his life. His fathers side of his family basically is disowning him. It’s wrong because he did nothing, and it’s like he’s being blamed. Regardless I hope he has a good wonderful life without the Knowles family. His mother should change his last name and probably never tell him he related to them anyway.

    • awesomekingisawesome

      He is her blood… I don’t get why the BABY has to be casted out like he is the plague or something. Arnold’s love child is welcomed by his siblings… even is best buds with his brother who is a month older then him…

    • Breana

      Beyonce has not said one word publicly about this. Only the child’s mother has been talking to the media.

  • Michelle Murray

    I lose a little respect for Beyonce. I understand being angry towards the lady for breaking up her parents’ long relationship, but don’t blame it on the son. He don’t know nothing about the situation.

  • Breana

    Beyonce and Solange like most kids are loyal to their mother. And they’re not going to side with some side chick over their mother’s feelings.
