When word of Matthew Knowles transgressions with his female office staff hit the blogs, Celestine Knowles, aka Tina, stayed quiet. When rumors of Matthew Knowles' alleged drug use and embezzlement of funds hit the nets, Celestine -- like that other famous Tina -- staunchly stood by her man.

And when it became publicly known that Matthew got another woman pregnant, Celestine swallowed her pride and held her family together for the sake of the children (Beyonce and Solange).

Rumor has it that her daughter Beyonce was so distraught upon hearing the news of her father's whoring that she drowns her sorrows in any bottle of hard liquor that she can find.

Now comes word that Celestine has finally found the courage to divorce that man. Friends say it was Elin Nordegren -- estranged wife of Tiger Woods -- who gave Celestine the strength to find her voice and finally walk away from a dysfunctional marriage.

According to online reports, ...documents were actually filed last month and Mathew was officially served his walking papers on the 16th of November.

We applaud Celestine, Elin and all strong women everywhere who take a stand against these dogs who do not respect their vows.

    She is a grown azz woman. I am sure she has known long ago about her dadagers disgressions. No child wants their parents to be married if they are not happy.

  • SugaBrown

    Good for her. Matthew has been cheating on her for years. Glad she finally decided to kick him to the curb.

  • Redeemed777

    Divorce wasn't part of the master plan, but God wouldn't suffer a woman or man to stay in a marriage with a cheating spouse ( a spouse who hardened their heart against God ), therefore God gave Moses permission to include ' divorce ' in the laws.

    Men and Women need to walk with God in order to overcome all sin. Jesus commanded " Be ye perfect even as your father in heaven is perfect. " This is a COMMANDMENT not an opinion.

    And I am really tired of you calling these women strong Sandra. They are not strong because Elin stayed and got cheated on for how many years before she FINALLY decided to leave. Come on now, you know damn well she knew Tiger was cheating! And Celestine, please, she took one of Matty's indiscretions into her home and raised her as her own. He has cheated on this woman for how many years? Let's be real, they ain't strong, they're TIRED :coffee:

  • Redeemed777

    It is possible to walk perfectly on this earth contrary to popular belief.

    People cheat because they do not know God.

    DO NOT BE DECEIVED: 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    I don't think it's because they don't know God. I think it's because they don't have the type of relationship with him that they're supposed to because if your relationship is like it should be with God and you'd be spending time in prayer with God and you would be able to avoid these situations and as I have said on here before that doesn't mean you wont get tempted

  • SouthernPrincess

    As someone stated they have been separated for a while, they weren't together when J and Bey were married. It was only a matter of time

  • tbrown

    God bless her in her journey. Just wish she would've ended this mess sooner. There's always been rumors going on about Matt's behavior. But they tried; she stayed (for appearance's sake and for the chirren), but that's not enough. You gotta be happy and you gotta do what's right. Divorce his bum; shoulda done it years ago.

    Well I hope that Mrs. Knowles find solace now. It hard enough for regular people to work through a divorce and it's even harder for high profile people. God bless them.

    And Sandra please stop speculating on Beyonce being an alcoholic. I won't believe it unless I see her falling down drunk on stage.

  • flsun99

    Sandra---you are a mess.
    Well, good for Mama Tina. She can move on now. I have always thought Ol Matty was an abuser. Beyonce & her Mom always seemed to act like there were abused (emotionally or verbally) by him. I am a Beyonce STAN...will ride all day erry day for my girl, but it seems like her Dad bullied and controlled the family.

  • pointhimout

    so if papers were filed last month, Elin had nothing to do with her decision. good one though, SR.

    I believe Tina remained quiet and dealt with so much for as long as any person could. You could already tell she and Matthew weren't together or separated at best. She'd be with the kids, he wouldn't. He'd be at an awards show, she wouldn't. I think they can both walk away and say they've had some great years together, have a great family, and just admit people grow apart and want different things. People who know me also know that I dont believe in marriage. Times are completely different and our morals arent what they once were, hence all the cheating and other extracurricular activities that take place within a marriage. Spice it up my ass, ur married. Respect it.

    Best to Tina. She probably has a generic man on the side anyways. She's not a bad looking lady at all.

    Sandra, the Tiger and Elin drama is bad but it is NOT comparable to the Knowles. Mama Knowles is one of them old fashioned women, who dealt with infidelity for 20 or 30 years. She has definitely fulfilled her vows of "for better or worse" and she's choosing divorce over "til DEATH do us part". If you know what I mean. :wink:
