Mathew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyonce, has been accused of “threatening” the mother of his two-year-old son while he is also reportedly behind in child support payments.
The 61-year-old welcomed a son with Alexsandra Wright in 2010, putting an end to his marriage with Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles after more than 30 years together. Around the same time, Beyonce cut ties with Mathew in a business sense, choosing to manage her own career after 15 years under her father's management.

It appears relations between Mathew and Wright are far from amicable after she alleges he sent “threatening” emails to her warning her she will “pay” for apparently ruining his family life.
TMZ reports that Wright has filed legal documents against Mathew alleging he sent an email in September 2011 in which he wrote: “You hurt my family. There's a price to pay.”
Wright has also asked the family court judge to increase her monthly child support payments to cover security measures as she feels she must protect her son as a result of Mathew's messages.

While Wright is also demanding additional payments to cover private schooling, Mathew has hit back claiming he would willingly pay the extra fees but they haven't agreed on a school.
Mathew believes Wright's case will fall apart as his income has decreased dramatically since Beyonce fired him as her manager.
