Beyonce’s Mom is a Single Lady


Beyonce’s Mom is a Single Lady

When Beyonce calls for all the single ladies to “put [their] hands up,” her mom is now waving hers wildly in the air — because she has filed for divorce from her hubby Mathew Knowles.

Tina Knowles filed divorce papers in Harris County, Texas last month, in an attempt to end their almost 31-year marriage. In the documents, it says Tina and Matthew “ceased to live together as husband and wife on or about January 5, 2009” — the exact day of their 30th wedding anniversary.

Around the same time the papers were filed, Papa Knowles was hit with a paternity lawsuit from another woman.  Coincidence?  Hmmmm.

Mathew has been Beyonce’s manager for years, so there could be a ton o’ cash up for grabs in the split.  In terms of other valuable assets, sources say Mathew lost custody of the second “t” in his name a long time ago.

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
