A paternity test proved that their 3-year-old son Nixon Alexander Knowles, born in February 2010, was indeed the result of their affair, which led Tina Knowles to file for divorce in November 2009, ending their 31-year marriage.
At the time, Wright told Star Magazine: “We had an 18-month relationship. We were in love and even lived together. 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.”
On Wednesday (Aug. 28), Wright released the following update regarding her attempt to collect from Knowles.
“It is with a heavy heart we must head back to Superior Court to continue the fight for the rights of my son Nixon Knowles, who has proven to be Mathew Knowles’ biological son. My family and I have exhausted every non-legal avenue to urge Mathew to be a responsible father and to follow the stipulated judgment we reached together, which was approved by California’s Superior Court. The official judgment was filed and dated September 10, 2010. Every detail was covered and agreed to by Mr Knowles after a year of private negotiation.
“We have attempted to appeal to him and his team to adhere to that agreement and the court’s stipulated judgment in regard to our son’s education, outstanding medical expenses and other issues, with the hopes of keeping this situation private, considering all parties involved. Unfortunately, we have been unsuccessful with any sort of private negotiation.
