Beyonce's Mother Files for Divorce!

Beyonce may be happily married to her longtime love Jay Z, but her parents are headed to divorce court!

Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles just filed for divorce from her husband of 29 years, Matthew Knowles.

According to TMZ, Tina filed for divorce last month in Harris County, Texas. The reason for the split wasn't specified, but we're assuming it has something to do with the fact that he reportedly got another woman pregnant.

Back in October, Los Angeles resident Alexsandra Wright slapped Matthew with a paternity suit claiming he’s the father of her unborn child. She's due to give birth in spring of 2010.

This isn't the first time the Knowles' marriage has been in trouble. Tina Knowles told CBS News she and her husband separated at one point because she thought he was "too driven" to see Beyonce succeed.

We're actually surprised it took Tina this long to file for divorce. She could do so much better!
