Beyonce's Parents Confirm Divorce

Close friends of Beyonce's parents know the couple haven't been so 'Crazy in Love' for quite some time. So it came as no surprise that the couple of 29 years has officially filed for divorce.

"The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. We remain friends, parents, and business partners," said the couple in a joint statement.

"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."

While they claim to remain friends and say the divorce is "amicable," it's no coincidence that Tina filed for divorce one month after Mathew was hit with a paternity suit.

Actress Alexsandra Wright slapped Mathew with a paternity suit back in October in Los Angeles claiming Knowles is the father of her unborn child.

Tina officially filed for divorce on November 11 but has since stopped wearing her wedding ring. We're actually surprised it took B's mom so long to separate from her father, but better late than never!
