According to CBS News, Celestine "Tina” Knowles, mother of singer Beyonce and Solange, has filed for divorce from her husband Matthew Knowles. Matthew also manages both his daughter's careers.
“…papers were filed in Harris County, Texas, last month to end their 29-year marriage. The documents state that the couple "ceased to live together as husband and wife on or about January 5, 2009."

The news comes after Matthew was hit with a paternity lawsuit in October, in which a then-six-months-pregnant Los Angeles woman named Alexsandra Wright claims he is the father of her unborn child.

The celebrity news website [TMZ] speculates that large amounts of money could be up for grabs in the divorce, as Matthew has been Beyonce's manager for years. Tina is involved in her daughter's lucrative career as well - she was the costume designer for Destiny's Child and she and her daughter created the "House of Dereon" clothing line.

The two have been married since 1980…”
Update: Tina and Matthew Knowles have released a joint statement regarding their pending divorce.
"The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one. We remain friends, parents, and business partners. 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."
I sure didn’t see this one coming. Although it has been rumored for years that Matthew has had more than his fair share of loose booty industry women trying to get ahead, I really never thought Celestine (Come again? With a name like Celestine, you sure you ain’t Nigerian Mama Tina?) would ever divorce Matthew.

I guess Mama Tina is "on to the next one" for the new year, I ain't even mad at ya!
