Beyonce shares montage of images with husband Jay Z
Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, reportedly filed for divorce from actor Richard Lawson on Wednesday according to court documents seen by TMZ.
The 69-year-old allegedly listed Tuesday as their date of separation and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind their sudden split.
The documents reportedly also revealed that the businesswoman is asking the court to terminate its ability to award spousal support to either her or Richard.
Tina and Richard got married in 2015 after two years of dating, although they had met decades earlier when they were introduced by Richard’s sister Gwen.
At the time of their wedding, Tina notably declared that she was “at my happiest” since her divorce four years earlier.

When the pair got married, Tina allegedly changed her legal name to Celestine Lawson, although she was known to the public as Knowles-Lawson due to the connection with her famous daughter, and now wants to revert it back to Celestine Knowles.
Express.co.uk have contacted Tina, Beyonce and Robert’s representatives for comment.
Over the past few weeks fans had been speculating over Tina and Robert’s relationship as the pair, who are usually inseparable on red carpets, had been attending more events solo.
Richard had been notably promoting his new flick, Black Terror, without his wife by his side even at the Cannes Film Festival.

Tina welcomed her only two children, Beyonce and Solange, with her first husband Mathew Knowles.
Her marriage to the 71-year-old also ended suddenly in 2011 when the pair released a statement saying they concluded their relationship “amicably” after 31 years together.
The statement added: “If anyone is expecting an ugly messy fight, they will be sadly disappointed.”
While there was no intense feud, many fans had been expecting one as a year earlier it had been revealed that Mathew had fathered a child with Scrubs actress Alexsandra Wright.
Mathew, who famously acted as Beyonce’s manager until his divorce from Tina, initially denied that he was a father but a DNA test proved otherwise.
Although Beyonce severed ties with her father in her work, she has emphasised that they are not estranged on a personal level.
Mathew has also since remarried, tying the knot with former model Gena Charmaine Avery in mid-2013.
