Tina Knowles-Lawson is breaking the Internet one fabulous photo at a time with her new photo shoot and cover story in the July 2015 edition of Ebony, but she also raised some eyebrows by revealing the somewhat unconventional advice she received from her son-in-law Jay Z after divorcing ex-husband Mathew Knowles.
A rap mogul and successful businessman in his own right, Jay Z is also the husband of Tina’s oldest daughter and international superstar Beyoncé, which likely gave him a front row seat to all that she went through while struggling to keep her marriage from failing in the midst of remaining an essential part of her daughters’ careers. Upon making the decision to end her marriage to Mathew and finding herself single at the age of 57, Tina revealed that her son-in-law was all for her dating younger men in this excerpt from her sit down with EBONY:
After 31 years of marriage and reports of her first husband’s infidelity, she privately divorced former Destiny’s Child manager Mathew Knowles in 2011. (After which, she says son-in-law Jay Z initially wanted her to date younger men.)
While Miss Tina didn’t quite take Jay’z advice in the end when she married 68-year-old actor Richard Lawson in April of 2015 after two years of dating, we don’t doubt that the flawless stunner would’ve had any problems pulling a younger man if she so preferred with the way she’s looking these days!
