In Matthew Knowles‘ case, it pays to be fired by your superstar daughter. Beyonce’s dad and former manager recently got his child support lowered for his three-year-old son with Alexsandra Wright because, by his definition, he’s poor.
As manager of Beyonce, Matthew Knowles was raking in millions of dollars on a regular basis. However, once Beyonce fired him in 2011, his income dropped faster than he could imagine. Knowles went from making three million dollars to $127,000. Due to his smaller income, Kniowles asked the judge presiding over his child support battle with Wright to reduce his payments of $12,000 a month to something he could afford without going into debt.
