Beyoncé's Parents Finally Granted Divorce 

Queen B's mum Tina Knowles is now a Single Lady again...

The parents of Destiny's Child superstar Beyoncé have finally divorced.

According to TMZ, Mathew and Tina Knowles' separation has now been legally finalised - two years after Bey's mum originally filed to end her marriage.

57-year old Tina took action against Mathew back in 2009, after it emerged that he had fathered a child with Alexandra Wright.

Their divorce was initially dropped in November 2010 after both parties failed to attend a court hearing, but Queen B's mum later refiled in Houston, Texas.

In the documents, Tina reportedly revealed that their marriage was "insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities" and "prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

Beyoncé is currently expecting her first baby with hubby Jay-Z, with reports suggesting she is due to give birth this month.
