Beyonce is still crazy in love with hubby Jay-Z, but her parents' romance is officially over.

Matthew and Tina Knowles' divorce was finalized last month in a Texas court, according to documents obtained by TMZ. Tina, 57, filed for divorce from manager Matthew, 60, in 2009.

According to TMZ, Tina declared the marriage fell apart because of "discord or conflict of personalities" which "prevents and reasonable expectation of reconciliation."
