Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles has filed for divorce from her second husband, actor Richard Lawson, after eight years of marriage.
Tina, 69, filed the paperwork on Wednesday, July 26, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split as per TMZ. She listed the date of separation as Tuesday, July 25, according to the documents obtained by the publication.
In the documents, Tina also asks ‘to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support’ to Richard, 76, or her.
Tina and Richard said ‘I do’ in April 2015. They do not have any kids together.
