I’m pretty sure that there’s always been just ONE star in our solar system; we call it THE SUN. (And if it ever explodes, it will definitely affect local quality of life.) But Betelgeuse is not the nucleus of this solar system.
Betelgeuse is one of the Milky Way galaxy’s brightest stars, as seen from our Solar System. It’s not part of the Solar System, any more than Russia is part of Alaska. Being able to see something from where you are standing does not make it a part of the local territory.
