Singers Beyonce and Solange Knowles' parents are headed for divorce after nearly 30 years of marriage, according to reports from AP News. Apparently it was Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, who decided to file the paperwork to cut off marital ties to Matthew Knowles.
In a statement to the press, Tina and Matthew said: "The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. 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."
Is this timing mere coincidence or could it possibly have something to do with the scandalous post from TMZ regarding a woman named Alexsandra Wright? While she insists that Matthew is the father of her unborn child, we won't know for sure until the DNA tests are revealed. Unfortunately for Matthew, Miss Tina clearly wasn't willing to wait around for those results.
