Beyonce’s Mother Tina Knowles has filed for a divorce from her husband Matthew Knowles after 29 years of marriage.  She began divorce proceedings on November 11th according to documents filed with the Harris County Court  Clerk. 

“The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. We remain friends, parents, and business partners,” the couple said in a statement provided to The Associated Press on Friday. “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.”

The divorce filing came about a month after Mathew Knowles was named in a paternity suit. Los Angeles resident Alexsandra Wright claims in the lawsuit that he is the father of her unborn child.

 I hope that they get the privacy that they are requesting.
