Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles Lawson graces the cover of Ebony magazine’s #SexyForever Issue, posing in a red dress for a glamorous photo shoot and giving a rare glimpse into her life as entrepreneur and matriarch of a musical superstar family, and married life with her new husband Richard Lawson.
Tina Knowles Lawson is 61 years old and much is being made of that as the Ebony cover which you can see below has gone viral. She’s gorgeous in a sexy red dress with a plunging neckline and she’s wearing a crown. It’s the perfect for the “Sexy Forever” issue.
Yes, there’s the typical admiration tempered with lots of chatter about plastic surgery and Photoshop. But truth be bold she has been a glamorous and beautiful woman for years. She is, after all, Beyonce’s mother! Beauty doesn’t end at age 59, or 49 or 39 for that matter. Just recently, Jane Fonda, at 77, stunned those with antiquated stereotypes with her luminous cover photo shoot for W magazine, making history as its oldest cover star.
Now it’s Tina Knowles Lawson’s turn in the spotlight. She drew some notoriety earlier this year when she got married to 69-year-old veteran actor Richard Lawson. This after the scandal that erupted when her former husband Matthew Knowles was found not only to have been unfaithful but to have fathered a love child. The subsequent divorce saw a split in the family as Beyonce also dropped him as her manager, a long-time professional relationship that went back to the Destiny’s Child days.
Ebony magazine’s cover story promises some tantalizing details, as Lawson tells the publication that Jay Z had urged her to date younger men after her divorce.
The story also chronicles her entrepreneurial success opening what became one of the most prominent black hair salons in Houston, Texas and, later branching into fashion design. As for staying in shape, according to Ebony, Knowles does “Pilates five days a week” and is also “in talks for a TV show about ‘getting your groove back.'”
