Alexsandra Wright, the Mom of Beyoncé’s 4-year-old half-brother, Nixon Alexander Knowles, admitted publicly that she and her son are struggling to keep a roof over their heads. Beyoncé’s dad, Matthew Knowles, who fathered Nixon, is allegedly the culprit behind Wright’s financial struggles. Wright has publicly blamed Knowles for a lack of support, which has supposedly resulted in her moving from a three-bedroom house and relocating to a trailer park. Now Wright, however, is being reportedly deluged with death threats because many of Beyoncé’s overzealous fans believe she is blaming the iconic singer for her current substandard living conditions. Wright decided to open up to “Inside Edition” in order to clear up some very dangerous misconceptions.
Wright, who starred in the now-defunct NBC hit show “Scrubs,” only publicly admitted last February that she and her son, whom Beyoncé has never met, were forced to seek welfare assistance, including food stamps, in order to get by day-to-day. TMZ alleges that Knowles was mandated by a California court to pay the Mother of his child $12,000 a month in child support. Knowles, a 61-year-old record executive who married a 48-year-old woman last July, reportedly became delinquent in his support payments because he says his income has taken a dive since he no longer manages his superstar daughter.
Wright and Knowles had been back and forth in court trying to iron out child support issues, and a few weeks ago, a judge finally reduced the monetary obligation to a reported $2,485 per month.
The judge, who approved the new set of monthly child support payments, also granted Knowles a credit for overpayments, which translates into Wright not receiving a dime from him for the next three and a half years.
Meanwhile Wright, who has been reportedly receiving $300 a month in food stamps, managed to move in to her trailer thanks to some help from a homeless support group outside of Los Angeles.
In addition to money woes, Wright has been getting death threats, and she claims they have been coming in by the droves to the tune of at least 1,000 per week. The performer is attributing the threats to an article that stated she allegedly blamed Beyoncé for her plight. Wright, who had an affair with Knowles while he was still married to Beyoncé’s mom Tina for 31 years, is allegedly deathly afraid of the threats.
Wright wants to make it clear that she does not blame Beyoncé for her money problems, telling “Inside Edition,” “It’s not Beyoncé’s fault. I don’t hold her accountable. I hold the Father of my child accountable,” she said before adding, “I got over a thousand death threats last week alone, because this article said I blamed Beyonce. And again, let me say for the record, It’s not her fault. I’ve never blamed her. I want the best for her.”

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
