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.
