mathew knowles & alexsandra wright

*Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles got a pass from a judge on his child support obligation because he has already paid way more than he was ordered to, reports TMZ.

Alexsandra Wright, the mother of their 3-year-old son, has dragged Knowles in and out of court for months, accusing him of falling behind in support payments. He was initially ordered to pay Wright $12,000 a month as of Feb. 2013, but a few weeks ago, he got a judge to reduce it to $2,485 a month, claiming his income had dwindled.

But sources familiar with the case tell TMZ that Knowles just scored again, convincing the judge he’s been overpaying all along. He argued that he should’ve only been paying $2,485 all along, amounting to an overpayment of $110,000.

The judge agreed, giving him credit for the overpayment.

Bottom line Knowles won’t have to pay Wright, who has been getting $300 a month in food stamps — ANYTHING for the next 3-and-a-half years. Wright vows to continue her fight.

But there’s a final twist. TMZ reports: “Welfare officials typically come after the dad when the mom is on public assistance, so we’re told he’ll probably end up giving her something, beginning this summer.”
