Wright told the US sun:'[He asks], ‘Why doesn’t that person love me?’ about Beyonce adding, “Nixon has never had the luxury of being a normal kid.” Being related to someone famous drowns out kids like him and they lose their identity.

Sister: Wright told the US Sun: ‘[He asks], ‘Why doesn’t that person love me?’ about Beyonce, adding: ‘Nixon has never had the luxury of being a normal kid’
She said: ‘I think Beyoncé is a lovely person and she’s never done anything to hurt me. I don’t want anything from them. I just want my son to be free and have a happy life.’
Wright says it’s hard for his “quiet and reserved” son to see “people living like billionaires” but thinks he and Beyonce will connect via social media at some point.
She said, “I tell you, ‘fame doesn’t equal happiness,’ so never covet what someone else has.”
He said that Nixon is constantly being asked at school if he is Beyoncé’s brother and that adults even take pictures of him.
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Beyonce and Matthew Knowles for comment.
In 2009, Beyonce’s mother, Tina, filed for divorce from Mathew after he had an affair with Alexsandra, who became pregnant and requested a paternity test. In 2010 a paternity test confirmed that he was Nixon’s father.
In 2014, Knowles had her child support payments reduced due to declining income.
Wright was bankrupted by the court battle and sought help from a homeless charity. The women’s support group arranged for the couple to move into a trailer after Wright was forced to go on public assistance, before her friend Shar Jackson took over for the couple.
