Beyonce's Mom Files for Divorce

12/18/2009 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce Knowles' mom -- the original costume designer for Destiny's Child -- has filed for divorce from her husband Mathew Knowles.

Beyonce

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 Mathew "ceased to live together as husband and wife on or about January 5, 2009" -- the exact day of their 30th wedding anniversary.

Back in October, Mathew was hit with a paternity lawsuit from a woman who's not his wife -- no word if that affected Tina's decision to pull the plug.

Mathew has been Beyonce's manager for years, so there could be a ton of cash up for grabs in the split.

The couple has two children together: Beyonce and Beyonce's younger sister.

He's admitted to being addicted to prostitutes and I was shocked she stayed with him after that.

Dear Global Grind,
I believe Bubbba number 10 on the comment list should be deleted from Global Grind based on his racist comment that Mathew Knowles is black and that's what they do.
This person has no place on here or anyplace.
Please Global Grind.....Block this person.

Mr. Knowles was just out playing 'Tiger'. ~ I wonder how many other kids 'ol Tiger has? Now Mr. Knowles can get together with Tiger and Tony Romo in Tony's box. It would be nice if we could box them all up there!

@ intrudere Beyonce is beautiful with make up,if you ever saw her in Houston before she got big you would know how beat up she look without it.As for TMZ, Harris County is just that,a County,there's no Harris County,Texas.So she filed the papers in Houston,btw,does anyone know who is the sexy blonde that always sits behind the blonde surfer guy?i think she dyed her hair now but it was blonde.

quite is kept.. Kelly Rolland is Matthew Knowles daughter by another woman.. this crap about her being Bey cousin.. is a LIE..everyone in Houston knows that Matt been whoring around for years.. and Tina was not innocent either.. because Bey is not Matt's biological daughter.. I say break out the DNA test and everybody get on the "Maury" show

This family is as FAKE as Beyonce's hair.
