Beyonce’s Mom Tina Knowles Files For Divorce From Actor Richard Lawson

Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, has filed for divorce from Richard Lawson.

The 69-year-old went to a Los Angeles County court on Wednesday (July 16) to end their eight-year marriage, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.

Knowles separated on Tuesday, citing “irreconcilable differences”, as the reason for the split. The businesswoman isn’t seeking spousal support from the court for herself or her soon-to-be ex-husband. The couple married in 2015 after two years of dating and had no children together.

Rumors started after fans noticed Knowles didn’t join her husband on his press tour for “Black Terror.” They saw she changed her Instagram bio from Tina Lawson to Tina Knowles, even though her username still has her married name. The couple last posted photos of each other in March.

Tina was previously married to Mathew Knowles, father of Beyonce and Solange, for 31 years before they split in 2009. She credited her daughters for helping her heal from her first divorce.
