PHOTO! Here is a picture of Beyonce’s brother Nixon Knowles. Beyonce’s half brother – between Alexsandra Wright and Matthew Knowles – has now been confirmed through DNA testing.
Beyonce and Solange now have a half brother as a result of an alleged affair Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s dad (lower left) had with Wright during his then marriage to Tina Knowles. Wright claimed the alleged affair lasted 18 months.
As broke in fall 2009 on LALATE, Wright began a paternity suit against Matthew while at the same time Matthew’s wife Tina Knowles began a divorce proceeding against him.
Tina’s divorce petition read as follows: “The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities … that destroys the legitimate relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
The Knowles had been married since 1980. No comment by any of the individuals to the news.
