By virtue of her talent and work ethic, Beyonce has ascended to the status of budding icon. However, anyone who is well-versed with her story will know how instrumental her father Mathew Knowles has been in her success narrative.
As such, it was little surprise at the ripples his infidelity and fathering of a child outside marriage caused back in 2009. Indeed, it was quite the blow to an otherwise wholesome image the singer and the Knowles’ clan had maintained for so long. A blow which reportedly led to his separation from wife Tina, and allegedly one of the reasons Beyonce formally severed management ties with him this year.
And, though the story had been quite high profile, it had dimmed over the last year, in the absence of any shots of mistress Alexandria Wright, baby Nixon, and Mathew’s retirement from the public eye.
Oh how that changed today, when a woman claiming to be Wright -armed with the alleged baby Nixon- sold her story to US tabloid Star.
While her story centred on rumours we won’t even dignify by repeating, her emergence after so long does make for compelling stuff – should she in fact be Wright and the handsome youngster indeed be baby Nixon.
For what it’s worth, she claims Mathew does not see the child, however does pay child support. Drama.
