It looks like Beyoncé's mom is now back to being one of the single ladies.

After two years of trying to end her marriage to the singer's father,  Matthew, Tina Knowles is now officially divorced from the man she called husband for almost 30 years.

According to details obtained by E! News, Tina refiled for divorce from Matthew on Aug. 30 after initially filing in 2009.

The divorce was finalized on Nov. 11, with both a judgment agreed upon and an order signed.

So, why the delay? Well, per Harris County, Texas, records, the former couple did have a divorce hearing scheduled in Nov. 2010, but it was dismissed for "Want of Prosecution."

Translation? Both Tina and Matthew failed to appear in court.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé is still crazy in love with Jay-Z. Which is a good thing, of course. You know, with the whole baby-on-the-way thing happening.
