After months full of murmuring and hearsay, it has today been confirmed that Beyonce‘s mother Tina Knowles is divorcing the singer’s father (and manager) Mathew after 29 years of marriage.

Interestingly, the power couple’s separation was legally filed back in November (as the pic below shows, courtesy of Bossip), yet only a few hours ago made its way out into the media:

Whatever the reason for their parting (which I’m sure will form the basis of many a debate), 29 years of marriage resulting in a divorce is quite sad. Sigh…

    Not one to spread gossip but it was around that time that it was rumoured that Mathew Knowles got another women pregnant! looks like the story had some truth to it! I feel for Beyonce and her sister and Tina, it’s heart breaking I hope they all stay strong

    oh please, dnt understand y yall are acting as if this was not comming..mathew has been on drugs and cheating for years..only coz it was exposed that he is expecting she files for divorce..she should have left a long time ago coz they were not together anyway..mathew was spotted so many times with diff woman…well at least now its official so lets move on..

  6. THE TRUTH December 18, 2009

    Mathew is beginning to have shady rep in the music biz too. Allegedly running a music “mafia” with Jay Z and also responsible for helping his daughter swagger jack music from other artists making Beyonce a so-called “writer”. Not to mention the couple of lawsuits over the swagger jacking which were settled in “private” meaning a lot of moola was paid out. I’m sure that added into the decision. Haha. Like who wants to be with a dude who cant be honest both personally and professionally.

    WHAT A FUN AND LOVELY WAY TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS @ THE KNOWLES CLAN! 🙂

    This is really sad news. To be honest, I’m not sure that I believe necessarily that Matthew cheated on Tina and I don’t think there has been any real evidence to suggest this. I guess The Knowles family probably know what’s really going on and we should respect their privacy.
    I’ve been a fan of Beyonce’s since No, No, No and I always thought The Knowles family seemed great. Hopefully they can all move on but remain on good terms since Tina and Matthew both still work with Beyonce.
    I must admit I am a little suspicious of whether Matthew is unpleasant to work with seeing as even Kelly has gone in a different direction now.

    Thats not Beyonce’s moms name

  15. monique December 18, 2009

  17. HEALTHY BLACK QUEENS REVAMPED! December 18, 2009

    ^ Karma. What goes around comes around.

  18. PLUG December 18, 2009

    This is not news. They’ve been seperated for quite some time now. They were only happy in the publics eye. This divorce was imminent.

  19. dont take shyt December 18, 2009

    Ol well

  20. I December 18, 2009

    Wow how heartbreaking! I wish them the best!

  21. anonymouss December 18, 2009

    just goes to show how fake happy families really are :/

  22. …still nothing December 18, 2009

    I hope they split amicably and are happy with their decision, but..

    WHO CARES?

  23. Anne December 18, 2009

    I don’t think this is surprising. I also don’t think they’ve been faking it because I haven’t seen them make a public appearance together in years. Most time only one of Beyonce’s parents attend an even with her or they sit separately. I assumed they were separated a long time ago. As for all the other rumors about Mathew and Beyonce, we’ll probably never know if any of it is true. I think people like ‘THE TRUTH’ should stop beleiving everything that they hear about people that they don’t even know personally. Until something is confirmed why not give this hard working, goal oriented family the benefit of the doubt? Especially Beyonce, since so many people that do know her personally have vouched for her personality as a kindhearted lady.

    @Mya….umm,yes it is….Celestine is her real name(Tina isjust a shortened version of it),the B stands for her maiden name Beyince………………….SMDH……………i guess there’s only so much a woman can take…wonder hw she managed to stay 29 yrs with tht snake

  25. Dilla December 19, 2009

    I think this is sad!. Matthew smdh, get it together! Tina didn’t deserve this and neither did Beyonce and Solange. I guess no baller is jumpoff proof! Hell, just look at Diddy.

  26. panisha December 21, 2009

    Wish all of them good luck.

    I THINK WHAT MATHEW KNOWELS AKA-DUMB ASS DID WAS AND IS UNTHINKABLE. HE IS A STANK MAN, AND HES BIN STANK FOR A MINUTE , THIS ISNT THE FIRST TIME HES CHEATED ON TINA. AND I THINK TINA KNOWELS FILING FOR DIVORCE IS THE SMARTEST THING SHE COULD EVER DO. YES I THINK TINA SHOULD CUT THAT CANCER THAT IS SUCKING THE ENERGY AND JOY OUT OF YOUR LIFE. I AM ROOTING FOR TINA,BEYONCE, AND SOLONGE STAY STRONG ITS GONNA BE HARD BUT YOU’LL MAKE IT THROUGH. AND AS FOR MATHEW KNOWELS I HOPE ALEXSANDRA WRIGHT (THE WOMEN HE GOT PREGNANT) TAKES YOU FOR EVERITHING YOUR WORTH.

  29. JAZMITTA March 24, 2010

    I HOPE ALL THE OTHER WOMEN THAT , MATHEW KNOWELS(REPTILE) CHEATED WITH COME FORWARD AND MAKE HIS LIFE HELL. I HOPE TINA FOLLOW S THROUGH WITH THAT DIVORCE QUICKLY . I HOPE SHE WILL BANISH THAT MAN FROM HER LIFE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, IT SHOULDNT BE HARD SINCE BEYONCE AND SOLONGE ARE GROWN WOMEN NOW, SO THERE AREN’T ANY YOUNG CHILDREN TO THINK ABOUT IN THIS SITUATION . BREAK FREE MAMA, YOUR BEAUTIFUL

  30. JAZMITTA March 24, 2010
