Trend Alert: Beyoncé’s Parents Doing The Reverse Divorce, Too
Yesterday, we told you that Britney Spears’ parents, Lynne and Jamie, are back together and happy after getting divorced in 2002. And now we hear that Beyoncé’s parents may have reconciled, too. Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Mathew Knowles last November, after 30 years of marriage, when another woman brought a paternity suit against him, claiming that they’d had an affair and that he’d fathered her baby. “The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one,” Tina said at the time. “We remain friends, parents, and business partners.”
But then both of them lawyered up, and things started to get a little nasty. Which is why it was so surprising that on Monday, neither Tina nor Matthew nor their lawyers showed up for the trial in their divorce proceedings. The case was dismissed and for now, their divorce is off.
May the reconciling parents of pop stars put a dent in our nation’s divorce rate.
