BEYONCE'S PARENTS Matthew and Tina Knowles have officially divorced today (Dec19) , after 31 years of marriage.

Tina, 57, filed for divorce a month after it was revealed that Mathew, 60, had fathered son, Nixon, with former Scrubs actress Alexsandra White, following an alleged 18 month affair.

In court documents Tina reportedly stated their marriage had become "insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities" which "prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation".
