Beyonce’s parents Tina and Mathew Knowles split and not too long after that it was confirmed that Mathew had fathered a son outside the marriage with a mistress. Since then, it’s now been confirmed that Mathew has fathered at least two children outside of his former marriage to Tina Knowles.

Despite the marriage ending on a rather messy note, Tina has bounced back well and not only does she had a new love in her life, but she’s happier now more than ever since splitting from Mathew.

Tina was the keynote speaker for the Women & Money leadership luncheon hosted by the Texas Women’s Empowerment Foundation. She says:

“At 58, I knew I had to get a divorce. At that age, it’s an almost impossible thing to go through. I had been married 33 years. I didn’t know anything else. I had no idea how to meet men or even date.”

Despite not being sure how to jump back in the dating pool, Tina managed to find love with her current boyfriend Richard Lawson. Lawson is an actor and also owns an acting school in LA:

“It’s been a year and five months, and I’m in a wonderful relationship and the happiest I’ve been in a long time.”


  1. Best thing Tina ever did was to remove his trifling behind from around her neck. Let the baby mamas eat him alive.

  2. I’m so happy for Miss Tina. This is a real testament to it’s never to late to move on with your life and be happy. Just because you spent however many years with someone doesn’t mean you can’t move on.

  3. Well let’s see. She divorced her trifling husband and has two beautiful daughters who adore her and one of them happens to be a superstar that can guarantee money will never be a problem for her. And her new man is handsome, has a career and treats her good. I’d say she won in life.

  4. Now this is good sh-t. Matty thought he would be able to dog Ms. Tina out forever, but she wasn’t having it. Now he ain’t sh-t and she’s living the life and enjoying her daughter’s success. Karma is a b-tch.
