Beyoncé Knowles' father has been cleared of being behind on his child support payments.

Matthew Knowles was accused of being a ''deadbeat dad'' by his former fling, Alexsandra Wright, and failing to provide for their four-year-old son, Nixon, but a judge has ruled the former Destiny's Child manager overpaid her $110,000 and he won't have to pay her any more money for three and a half years.

The judge ordered Matthew, 63, to pay Alexsandra $12,000 a month in February 2013, but reduced the payment to $2,485 recently after he proved that he could no longer afford to pay the original amount.

A source told gossip website that Matthew has now convinced the judge that he should have been paying $2,485 all along, and the judge agreed to give him credit for the overpayment.

Alexsandra recently claimed that she and Nixon are on the verge of being homeless because they can no longer afford their home and are on welfare.

Neither Matthew - married former model Gena Avery in Houston, Texas last July - nor his famous daughters, Beyoncé and Solange, have ever met Nixon.

The 'XO' singer previously hinted that she and Matthew, who split from her mother Tina Knowles in 2009 and divorced her in December 2011 after 31 years of marriage, were still in the process of rebuilding their relationship after they decided he would no longer be her manager in 2011.
