I don’t know who tried to come for Ms. Tina, but you gonna learn today never to mess with Beyoncé’s mama.
After opening the BET Awards with a surprise performance of “Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce swiftly left the building and hopped on a plane to Europe. Tina Knowles-Lawson accepted two awards on her daughter’s behalf and explained Beyoncé had to leave to prepare for a concert in London.
However, die-hard fans already knew the European leg of “The Formation World Tour” kicked off on Tuesday (Jun 28) in Sunderland, England and not on Monday (Jun 27) in London as Tina had suggested. Some brave souls accused Tina of lying and took the innocent mistake as an opportunity to make jokes on social media.

Tina wasn’t having it and gave the ultimate clapback via TWO lengthy Instagram posts.
Hello guys first let me sayI just got a wind of the mess that has festered since last night ! The fact that I supposedly lied about my Daughters concert . First of all I did make a mistake on the city and the day . I asked why did she have to leave early and was told by a member of her staff that “she had to get back in time for her concert ” and that she actually should have been there 2 days before, as the tour has been down for a month I assumed the date was Monday and the city was London well it turned out to be in the Uk but wrong city and on Tuesday. I want to point out that there is a nine hour time difference and it is an eleven to 12 hour Flight that equates to 19 – 20 hrs to get there! I then want to ask what would be the point of lying to the public and knowing that anyone could see when the date was. Any one with good sence could see that ! I am hurt and disappointed because I know what kind of work, sacrifice , and personal Money it took for her to do this show and support the Bet Award show and to give her fans that did not get to attend the concert a piece of her show. (Even though it means she has one day to rehearse herself and dancers after being off for a month) That was really important to to her. Although everyone told her this is going to take a toll on your tour because you will only have one day to rehearse and you and the dancers will have been off for a month. You will be exhausted because you get to the states on Thursday rehearse for Bet fly to Mexico to be with your Sister for her Birthday on Friday get back to La on Sunday and start rehearsals at Bet At 7 am . (Who else would get three hours of sleep like that? ) Book a huge private plane to carry your dancers and creative staff and choreographers road Managers and pay for it out of your own pocket. Who does that? Please understand that I absolutely am not doing this for anyone but my self! I know I owe no explanation to anyone but I am tired of people writing my story. So I chose to tell my own! Thanks for listeningcontinued on next post
This is exactly what I was talking about. We start lies and false rumors about our entertainers we celebrate when they stumble, we hope that they fall . We put them against each other when it’s room for them all! We talk negative about them and even their children which should be off limits. When they are gone we cry and say how much we loved them and cherish them we salute them in tributes. Well how about we do that when they are here? I am sorry this is soo long but I had to get it off my chest! You guys are soo sweet and understand please! I I know I owe no one an explanation this is for me not anyone else. I am tired of letting people tell my story ! As Micheal Jackson would say “with Love”. Wake up people. God Bless all of you
Honestly, Beyoncé didn’t have to show up live for the BET Awards. She very well could have performed via satellite or given footage from one her concerts like she has done in t Let’s just be grateful that Queen Bey decided to bless us with her presence and give us “one of the greatest BET Awards performances of all-time!” **Kanye voice**
We also can’t expect Tina to know her daughter’s schedule. Miss Tina has her own life and new husband. She doesn’t have time to follow Beyonce’s every move like some.
At the end of the day, I bet this will be the last time Twitter trolls dare try to come for Tina Knowles-Lawson.
