Knowles and Lawson have been dating for close to two years now. But she followed in the footsteps of both of her daughters by never officially announcing her wedding date and instead keeping the details about their nuptials secret. Knowles also stuck to the same color palette as her daughters’ weddings, having her guests to wear all-white to the ceremony.
Tina parted ways with her ex-husband, Matthew Knowles, back in 2011. The pair split amid rumors that Matthew had cheated on Tina. And it was later revealed that Matthew, who was once Beyoncé’s manager, had actually fathered two children outside of his and Tina’s relationship during the time the couple was still married.

While serving as the keynote speaker at the Texas Women’s Empowerment Foundation’s Women & Money Leadership luncheon in 2014, Knowles opened up about her and Matthew's divorce. “At 58, I knew I had to get a divorce. At that age, it’s an almost impossible thing to go through. I had been married 33 years. I had been married for 33 years. I didn’t know anything else,” she said.
But she added that after taking time to overcome the heartbreak and find herself again, she ended up reconnecting with Lawson, who she had known for years before they began dating. She said that she reached out to him for support when she found out that Matthew was remarrying, and they soon formed an unbreakable connection. “It’s been now a year and five months and I’m in a committed relationship with that handsome man! And I’m in my happiest I've been in a long, long time,” Tina said. Congrats on the exciting news, Mama Tina and Richard!
