Look, With the re-branding of the VitaminQ brand it’s been very important for me not to just cover trite, petty mess. I Shade With A Purpose.  I feel like the things that happen in pop culture can serve as a representation of issues plaguing all of society.  It’s for this reason that sometimes we have to talk about thing that don’t seem like our business.  To make sure I’m being fair I’ll keep my opinions separate from the facts……even though I feel both can help you.  Today’s lesson comes from Matthew Knowles’ sorry baby mama moving into a homeless shelter and instead of being aware that Beyonce is probably somewhere laughing with Tina….actually expects her to help!

The Story

From Centrictv.com~

Alexsandra Wright claims that financial strain and a lack of support from Knowles, has forced her and their 4-year-old son Nixon to seek housing. 

Wright claims that she has been struggling for quite sometime, and no one from the Knowles family has reached out to help—namely the child’s older–and wealthy—half sister Beyoncé

“I can’t imagine how Beyoncé feels knowing she has a homeless brother,” she shared in an interview with In Touch. “I know if I were in the same position, I would reach out. Maybe she is too busy.”

So how did Wright end up in such dire straits? 

This past March, a judge ruled that since Mathew, 63, lost his job as Bey’s manager back in 2011, his child support payments should be reduced. 

The $12,000 a month child support payments he was originally paying—which comes out to roughly $144,000 annually—were retroactively reduced to $2,400 a month. Consequently he will not have to pay child support for the next two years.

 As previously reported, Wright currently relies on a $300 a month state-issued EBT card to pay for food and other expenses.

“Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister Beyoncé.”

Both Mathew and Bey have yet to respond to Wright’s pleas for help. 

The Q

I think the thing that bothers me the most about this woman is her entitlement. This assumption that Beyonce should be raising her illegitimate baby for her is weird to me.  I’m so sick of this mentality that these loose women have that once the baby is here everyone is supposed to suck it up and come together for you. It simply doesn’t work that way.  You can’t attack a family then use your child for sympathy.

But before we even get to that let’s talk about why she’s moving into a homeless shelter in the first place.  Why isn’t she working? The gall of this woman to think her little trap baby would ensure her the glamorous life.  For her to be completely destitute after what she’s been paid so fair shows that she was trying to live a Beyonce lifestyle on a child support budget.  She didn’t count on Beyonce firing her father though. Matthew is no longer eating off his daughter and neither will she.  She’s having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that opening her legs and throwing the condom to the side won’t be her early retirement plan.  

I hate to see women get stuck in bad situations, but I don’t mind seeing manipulative people get what they deserve.  There are alot of women out there who are the victims of irresponsible men who use them and don’t want to face responsibilities.  However, there are a great many who stalk rich men and do whatever they can to get pregnant to ensure a lifestyle living as an independent housewife.  This behavior is causing a backlash against good honest single mothers that they don’t deserve.

This woman would rather go on the networks begging for money and shaming Beyonce before she gets a job, and that’s something that I’m having a big problem with. These side chics are getting real self righteous these days giving people moral advice on what they should and shouldn’t be doing, but the truth of the matter is you and Beyonce aren’t friends.  Matthew ain’t shyt and you knew it because you weren’t shyt either.  Like attracted like and I hope she’s able to find a quiet, corner cot at the shelter so she can do some self-reflection. 

Ladies you should have a better plan for raising your kids than child support, and if you’re depending on the kindness of the family that you tore apart then all I can offer you is prayers!
