Singer Beyonce’s parents have officially ended their marriage.

Mathew and Tina Knowles finalized their divorce in a Texas court last month, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Tina, 57, declared the failed marriage was due in part to "discord or conflict of personalities," which "prevents and reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

The pair married in 1980 and had two children, pop sensation Beyonce Knowles, 30, and younger sister, singer Solange Knowles, 25.

Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Beyonce’s father and ex-manager in 2009 amidst rumors of infidelity and a pending paternity suit against Mathew Knowles.

In March 2010, a DNA test confirmed that Mathew Knowles, 60, was the father of actress Alexsandra Wright's child. Wright claims her affair with Knowles spanned 18 months.

Tina Knowles is a stylist and co-creator of Beyonce’s clothing label “House of Dereon.”

Beyonce fired her father as her manager earlier this year.

"I am grateful for everything he has taught me," Beyonce said in the statement about the business split. "I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

"He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly," the singer added.
