AceShowbiz - Apparently there's trouble in paradise between Tina Knowles and her husband Richard Lawson. The mom of Beyonce Knowles has quietly called it quits with Richard after 8 years of marriage, if her social media account is any indication.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Tina might hint at the separation in her Instagram bio. The 69-year-old has allegedly changed it from "Tina Knowles-Lawson" to "Tina Knowles," dropping Richard's last name.
Not stopping there, fans pointed out that Richard didn't seem to attend Jay-Z's mother's wedding, even though the rest of the family were there. The rap mogul's mom Gloria Carter, who came out as a lesbian six years ago, tied the knot with her longtime partner Roxanne Wilshire on Sunday, July 2.
Additionally, Tina doesn't join Richard who has been promoting his new movie, "Black Terror", worldwide. The actor has been attending film festivals, such as the Essence Festival and Cannes Film Festival, solo without Tina by his side.
It was also noted that Richard has been spotted without his wedding ring as of late. The pair, who exchanged vows in 2015 after dating for 2 years, also skipped making their yearly heartfelt social media posts to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
Upon catching wind of the report, fans did think that something might have happened between the couple. "She's been solo so frequently lately that I forgot about him," one person commented. "No shade, removing her 'Lawson' from her bio is a strong indicator. 'Cause why, Miss Tina?" someone else weighed in on the matter. "Even if they didn't split, it still seems like there's trouble in paradise," another person said.
Some others urged people to mind their own business. "Stay out them grown folks business lol," one said. Echoing the sentiment, one other wrote, "This is exactly why Beyoncé don't follow nobody… Get off her internet."
The split speculations arrived after Tina lost over $1 million worth of cash and jewelry after her Los Angeles home was robbed. She was away in a different town when someone from her team stopped by her house earlier this week only to discover that her entire safe and its contents had been stolen.
It's unclear how the thieves got inside and removed the safe. Local police are speaking to neighbors and looking for video footage of the area, but they have no leads so far.
