Beyoncé's Half-Brother Nixon Alexander Knowles Is Now 10 Years Old & They Don't Look Alike
Beyoncé is a world-famous star, and not a lot of people know that she actually has a 10-year-old half-brother from her dad Mathew Knowles.
Everybody knows of Beyoncé's sister Solange, but now a lot know that she actually has two younger siblings. Back in 2010, Mathew fathered a child with actress Alexsandra Wright will still married to Tina Knowles.

After a paternity test, it was confirmed that Mathew indeed fathered Nixon. This revelation rocked the Knowles family, and Tina filed for divorce. In 2011, their marriage officially ended.
KNOWLES' TWO YOUNGER CHILDREN
While Mathew and Tina's marriage ended in divorce, Wright shared that Mathew was not present in Nixon's life as he does not meet up with his son nor does he pay child support. That same story was echoed with Knowles' third child, Koi.
Koi was born in 2010 to Mathew Knowles and TaQoya Branscomb, who met him while she was working as a dancer. At the time, she revealed that "he treated me like I was the love of his life."
Despite the circumstances, both children hope to be embraced by the Knowles family, especially their two older sisters.
A SIMILAR SCENARIO BETWEEN THE TWO CHILDREN
However, after Knowles found out that she was pregnant and gave birth, he decided to cut ties with them. While TaQoya admits sleeping with a married man was wrong, she's thankful that it gave her a beautiful daughter that is now her best friend.
"Yes, I slept with a married man and it was the wrong thing to do, but I have a beautiful daughter that came out of the situation.”
Mathew never acknowledged both Nixon and Koi, and while he's allegedly been ordered to pay for child support, it is unclear whether or not he's done this for both children. Despite the circumstances, both children hope to be embraced by the Knowles family, especially their two older sisters.
