In a surprising turn of events, Tina Knowles, the renowned mother of music superstar Beyoncé, has filed for divorce from her second husband, Richard Lawson. Court documents reveal that the 69-year-old businesswoman visited a Los Angeles County court on Wednesday (26 July) to formally end their eight-year marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. The date of separation was listed as Tuesday.
Tina Knowles and Richard Lawson’s split has been the subject of speculation for some time, as keen-eyed fans noticed her absence during her husband’s recent press tour for “Black Terror.” Moreover, they observed that she reverted her Instagram bio from Tina Lawson back to Tina Knowles, despite her username still reflecting her married name. Adding to the evidence, the couple had not shared photos of each other on their social media feeds since March.
Despite having known each other for decades, Tina and Richard’s romantic journey began in 2013 when they finally decided to explore a relationship together. Two years later, they tied the knot aboard a luxurious yacht in Newport Beach, California. The absence of any children between them means the divorce proceedings will primarily focus on the equitable division of assets and properties.
