Tina Knowles is clapping back at those who said that she lied during while accepting daughter Beyonce’s award during the BET Awards. During the speech, Mama Knowles in explaining Bey’s absence said that she had a fly to London for a concert but that wasn’t exactly the truth…but it wasn’t an intentional lie either as Knowles explained in a lengthy Instagram post.
“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 has 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,” she wrote.
“I then want to ask what would be the point of lying to the public and knowing that anyone could see when the date was,” she asked. “Anyone with good sense could see that! I am 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. (Even though it means she has one day to rehearse herself and dancers after being off for a month) That was really important to her.”
