Matthew McClurkin is a celebrity child, the son of American gospel singer and three-time Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin. He was born in 2000 to Donnie and a mother whose details remain unknown to most netizens. Matthew McClurkin is not the only child in his family; he has an elder sister named Michelle McClurkin. Michelle is not Matthew’s biological sister, given she was adopted.
Education and Career
Matthew comes from a family that values education; he has been educated since he is currently in college. After completing his high school studies in one of the best schools in the United States, he joined college to pursue the career of his dreams. However, he has not mentioned which institution he joined and what he is majoring in.
Regarding his career, Matthew is still studying, but he is probably doing a side hustle to be able to take care of his daily financial needs. He has not shown interest in the music industry, but he has a close relationship with his father; maybe someday, he will walk in his father’s footsteps.
Despite being a celebrity child, Matthew McClurkin is highly secretive. He does not like showing off on social media platforms. Matthew has not revealed if he is dating anyone, but he might have a girlfriend, given his age.
His Father’s Personal Life
Despite being a gospel minister, Matthew’s father has had a tough ride in his relationships. When he was young, he was highly exposed to pornography, and this affected his orientation; he mentioned that his uncle had a hand in him turning gay. He has dated both men and women, but later in life, he changed. Matthew’s father was able to deal with his sexual orientation through fasting and prayers, and he has been speaking against same-sex marriage.
In 2008, during Barrack Obama’s campaign, Matthew’s father was expected to perform, but due to his views on homosexuality, he was removed from the performance list. He has been in the spotlight on multiple occasions due to his views on same-sex marriage, but as a man of God, he has to speak against such occasionally.
Regarding his romantic relationships, Donnie has never been in any long-term relationship; most of his relationships were short-lived, and after a breakup, he would move to the next one. In 2016, Matthew’s father revealed that he was in a romantic relationship with singer and songwriter Nicole C. Mullen. However, they separated after close to five years in a relationship.
It is unclear if Matthew’s father is currently dating or married, as he has kept the latest details about his love life to himself. On the other hand, Nicole remarried, though the name of the man she married remains a mystery to many.
