Beyonce's Parents


... for Real This Time

12/19/2011 1:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mathew and Tina Knowles' on again-off again divorce dragged on for two years, but it's now legally kaput, done, over ... final.

The final decree of divorce was issued last month in a Texas court, and according to documents -- obtained by TMZ -- Beyonce's mom refiled on August 30. Tina's first swing at the divorce was in November 2009 ... but the matter was dropped in 2010 when they were both no-shows for court.

In the docs, Tina says the marriage was "insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities" ... which "prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

The papers make no specific mention of Mathew getting slapped with a paternity suit back in 2009 -- but the original divorce filing did come one month after that went down.

P.S. the kid turned out to be his.

At least Tina still has House of Dereon and her Wal-Mart clothing line. Since Matthew is no longer managing Big Country's career, what's he doing for a J.O.B. these days? Between the two of them, I think Tina would have less trouble finding someone else to be with, if she wanted. Plus, she is pretty fly for a grandma. What was Matthew thinking?

Sorry to hear about this split. As a limo driver in L.A., I got to meet Mr. and Mrs. Knowles. Both were always very pleasant, polite, charming, elegant and generous tippers. The child out of wedlock part is pretty outrageous, in any level of society. Hopefully, the news of Jay-Z and Beyonces' baby will bring some happiness to all involved.
