It looks like those Christmas won’t be the happiest for international music star Beyonce Knowles, as it has just been announced by the British newspaper Daily Mail that her parents are getting divorced. Celestine Tina has filed for divorce from his husband of almost 30 years and also manager of her daughter’s career Matthew Knowles.
“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 decision of ending the marriage came up about a month after Matthew Knowles was named in a paternity suit from Alexia Wright. Wright, female in her late thirties and a Los Angeles resident, claims Mr.Knowles is the father of the baby she is expecting. She seems to be six months pregnant. The case was filed in L.A. Supreme Court and Alexia’s attorney is Neal Hersh, who also represented L.A Lakers Lamar Odom in the pre-nup negotiations with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian. TMZ did some research on the identity of Wright. Even though she is not an actress, she did a very small role on Scrubs once, episode that aired back in 2001.
This is very sad news. The Knowles has always represented the epitome of the perfect and strong family who struggle all together to support Beyonce’s unstoppable career. Also Tina Knowles has founded with her famous daughter “House of Deréon”, a fashion line inspired on the diva’s style, that has been very successful since its creation back in 2004.
