Beyonce’s Parents Matthew and Tina Knowles Divorce Confirmed

The Matthew and Tina Knowles divorce is officially on. The parents of superstar singer Beyonce and sister Solange Knowles confirmed they are getting a divorce in a joint statement released to the press. Tina and Matthew Knowles said the divorce decision was “amicable” despite the paternity lawsuit currently pending against Matthew Knowles by alleged baby momma Alexsandra Wright.

“The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one,” Beyonce’s parents said in a press statement. “We remain friends, parents and business partners. If anyone is expecting an ugly messy fight, they will be sadly disappointed. We ask for your respect of our privacy as we handle this matter.

Tina Knowles filed divorce papers in Texas recently to put an end to her 29-year marriage to Matthew Knowles. The divorce papers were filed not long after a woman named Alexsandra Wright slammed Matthew Knowles with a paternity suit, claiming he is the father of her child, which is due in the spring.

We do indeed hope Matthew and Tina Knowles can keep their divorce “amicable” as they say they will. We’ve certainly seen more than enough nasty Hollywood divorce battles splashed all over the tabloids.
