Beyonce and Jay-Z are divorcing, but it seems that memo hasn’t reached Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles. Tina was cornered by TMZ coming out of a lunch with Kelly Rowland in Beverly Hills, and when she was asked [pretty point-blank, mind you] whether Jay-Z and Beyonce were divorcing, her answer was a classic evasive maneuver.
She said, “Haters going to be haters and there is nothing we can do about that. Everything is perfect. I just don’t even read the bull you know?”
Uh-huh. Notice she doesn’t actually say that Beyonce and Jay-Z are NOT divorcing, just that ‘everything is perfect’. Why can’t everything be perfect even if Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting divorced? As long as Tina keeps getting her share, right? Following Gwyneth Paltrow‘s handbook on conscious uncoupling, then Beyonce and Jay-Z plan to remain on really good terms to raise Blue Ivy together. In that case, they’re staying as amicable as possible in the face of their divorce, which would definitely filter its way through to Beyonce’s mother.
Plus, as a mother, I’m sure she feels it her prerogative to correct all the media assumptions – even if they’re true. We’ve heard from everyone – People, US Weekly, Page Six – about the divorce happening, and there’s no way all those publicist-approved sources are completely wrong. Besides, in a marriage where everything is just fine your son-in-law and your thug daughter Solange don’t have a brawl in an elevator at the Met Gala. Whether Mama Knowles wants it to happen or not, her answers are not going to change the outcome.
