Beyonce Knowles' half-brother and his mother are reportedly moving out of their Los Angeles home into a homeless shelter. 

Actress Alexsandra Wright and her four-year-old son Nixon, who was conceived during an affair with Beyonce Knowles' father, Mathew Knowles, were photographed packing up boxes of their belongings, according to the Daily Mail on Thursday. The revelation of the affair ended Mathew Knowles' marriage to Tina, Beyonce Knowles' mother.

Mathew Knowles, 63, lost his job as his superstar daughter’s manager in 2011, and a judge ruled on March 3 that his child support payments should be retroactively reduced, from $12,000 to $2,400 per month, according to InTouch Weekly.

Beyonce Knowles, 32, and sister singer Solange, 27, are estranged from their father and did not attend his wedding to former model Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston in June 2013.

Wright told InTouch that Beyonce has never met her half brother or offered to help.

"Nixon deserves to know his family, and I hope one day he will meet his sister Beyoncé," Wright said. "I can't imagine how Beyoncé feels knowing she has a homeless brother. I know if I were in the same position, I would reach out. Maybe she is too busy."

Beyoncé's mother filed for divorce in December 2009, roughly a month after Mathew Knowles' named appeared in a paternity case filed by Wright. The Knowles had been married for nearly 30 years.

The New York Daily News last year reported that Mathew Knowles is head of Music World Entertainment and manages several gospel acts including Grammy-winner Le’Andria Johnson. 

Madame Noire's Veronica Wells weighed into the issue.

"I'm conflicted on this one," she wrote. "A large part of me thinks that Alexsandra Wright is a messy opportunist with questionable morals. But I can understand her point about Beyoncé and Solange at least meeting their baby brother. And if Wright is indeed homeless, it would only be right for someone to help."
