In 2014, Mathew hosted a “garage sell” at his Music World headquarters in Houston, selling Destiny’s Child and Solange memorabilia to make ends meet. In 2015, he revealed in a Breakfast Club interview that he’s still the manager of Destiny’s Child and whenever there’s a DC tour, he profits from it.
Their last tour was in 2005.
Mathew also stated he owns the group’s trademarked name and some publishing rights, but no royalties.
In April of 2014, Mathew reportedly asked a judge to lower his child support payments to Alexsandra Wright from $12,000 per month to $2,485. Because he was no longer managing his millionaire daughter, he could no longer afford to pay the original child support settlement.
In 2016, he tried to convince another judge of the same with TaQoya Branscomb, the mother of his daughter Koi, but the judge decided to garnish Mathew’s wages to pay TaQoya “$70,822 in back child support plus interest, along with $1,496 a month in regular child support”, said reports.
In August 2017, Fameolous reported Mathew had pawned his car for $10,000. This was his third time having to pawn his vehicle for money, said the blogger.
Neither Mathew nor his daughters have spoken publicly about his recent hardships.
