After a two-year battle, Beyonce‘s parents are officially no longer crazy in love. Mathew and Tina Knowles’ divorce has been finalized.

The couple, who were married for 31 years, were issued the final decree of divorce last month in a Texas court, two years after Tina first filed in November 2009. According to TMZ, the original filing was dropped in 2010 when both parties failed to show up in court.

Beyonce’s mom refiled on Aug. 30, saying that the marriage was “insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities” which “prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.” TMZ reports that there is no mention of  Mathew’s 2009 paternity suit in the papers, however, the original divorce filing did take place one month after the paternity case came to light.

DNA testing proved that Mathew was, in fact, the father of former ‘Scrubs’ actress Alexsandra Wright’s son. She gave birth to their child, Nixon, on Feb. 4, 2010.

In March, Beyonce severed professional ties with her father, who managed her career since her days in Destiny’s Child. “I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” the pop star said in a statement. “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.”
