Some break-up news to pass along today … Beyoncé‘s parents, Tina and Matthew Knowles, are officially going splitsville now that Tina has filed for divorce. I understand that things have not been good between Tina and Matthew for some time now (and I imagine that the paternity suit slapped on Matthew back in October didn’t help matters very much) so I guess it was time to make it official. Beyoncé‘s folks are dunzo!
Beyonce Knowles’ mom — the original costume designer for Destiny’s Child — has filed for divorce from her husband Mathew Knowles. Tina Knowles filed divorce papers in Harris County, Texas last month, in an attempt to end their 29-year marriage. Back in October, Mathew was hit with a paternity lawsuit from a woman who’s not his wife — no word if that affected Tina’s decision to pull the plug. Mathew has been Beyonce’s manager for years, so there could be a ton of cash up for grabs in the split. The couple has two children together: Beyonce and Beyonce’s younger sister.
Yikes! As far as big break-ups go … this one is a doozy. Not so much because of the break-up itself but because of the money that is involved. The Knowles’ together are hugely responsible for all the financial success that Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé herself have and still enjoy. I imagine they are very rich … together. But, if Tina is divorcing from Matthew due to infidelitous behavior, she might come out on the better end of this divorce. It totally sucks that something like this has to happen around the holidays but, well, these things happen. Here’s hoping it all works out in everyone’s best interests.
