Tina Knowles is NOT a liar — and she wants everyone to know it. Beyonce’s mom was accused of lying about the singer’s whereabouts after her performance at the BET Awards, so now, Tina has issued a lengthy explanation and also admitted to being ‘hurt & disappointed’ by her daughter’s fans.
Did Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, totally lie when she said her daughter had jetted off to London after performing at the BET Awards on June 26?! That was fans’ consensus on Twitter, considering Bey didn’t have to be in the UK until June 28, but after receiving major backlash, Tina has taken to Instagram to explain. See her message here!
In case you’re just catching up on this story, here’s what went down: Beyonce opened the show at the 2016 BET Awards with an epic performance, but later on, when she was announced as the winner of multiple awards, it was Tina who took the stage to accept the trophies. Tina explained that Beyonce had to rush out after the performance to get to a concert in London, sending fans into a frenzy, because she wasn’t due in London until July 2, and didn’t have to be in the UK until June 28.
“First of all I did make a mistake on the city and the day,” Tina explained. “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 had 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 hours to get there!”
Okay, so that explains it, guys — it all makes sense now! But the 62-year-old didn’t end her rant there. She also pointed out that there was no “point” in her lying about something like this, and admitted to being “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.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Tina’s apology?
