Beyoncé‘s parents Tina and Mathew Knowles‘ divorce has been finalised after 31 years of marriage.
They were issued a final decree of divorce in Texas last month, a whole two years after Tina initially signed the papers.
They separated in 2009 after she discovered that Matthew, 60, had a ‘bastard baby’- he had fathered a child with Alexsandra White during an 18 month affair.
Tina cited the reason for the divorce as “discord or conflict of personalities”, which “prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
Matthew helped to propel his daughter into the spotlight, and until earlier this year, managed Beyoncé‘s career, whilst Tina was responsible for the creation of the ‘House of Deréon‘ clothing label that they both share.
Another classic example of a midlife crisis!
