At last, Tina Knowles decided to put an official end to her 31-year old marriage to Mathew. Apparently, Bey’s mom filed the papers last month in Texas – finalizing the whole thing. Tina’s initial attempt to kick the mega manager to the curb occurred in November 2009, but according to TMZ, the matter was dropped in 2010 because neither of Beyonce’s folks decided to show up for court. The original divorce filing went down one month after it became public knowledge that Mathew was the daddy of former Scrubs actress, Alexsandra White’s, unborn child.
In the official documents, Tina claims the marriage was “insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities” … which “prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.” This may have been a long time coming, but the birth of Mathew’s love child in 2010 could’ve been the straw that broke this particular camel’s back.
Mathew and Tina have been the very bedrock of Beyonce’s successful career. Mathew quit his job at IMB 20 years ago to manage Beyonce’s first group, Girl’s Tyme, which matured into Destiny’s Child. Tina acted as stylist for the Grammy award winning group and went on to co-found House of Dereon with Beyonce in 2005.
No word on “who got what,” however, there’s been talk that Tina recently put her Houston mansion on the market. Coincidence? Time will tell…
Clutch, who didn’t see this coming a mile away? What are your thoughts on Tina’s decision to kick Mathew to the curb?
