Really sad ...31 years ..shameIt's been a slow process, but Beyonce's parents Tina and Mathew Knowles have finally divorced after 31 years of marriage.
The couple were issued a final decree of divorce in a Texas court last month - two years after stylist Tina originally filed legal papers.
The couple separated in 2009 after it emerged Mathew - who managed his daughter until earlier this year - had fathered a love child.

In court documents, Tina, 57, said the marriage was 'insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities' which 'prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation', according to TMZ.com.
Tina's original divorce filing came just a month after it emerged Mathew, 60, had fathered a child with former Scrubs actress Alexsandra White, who was pregnant at the time.
White, 40, gave birth to their son Nixon on February 4 2010 following an 18 month affair with Mathew.
