Mother always knows best. So when Tina Knowles says Beyonce and Jay Z are doing just fine, she's probably right.
A TMZ cameraman caught up with Knowles as she was leaving a lunch date with Kelly Rowland at Via Alloro in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Aug. 20. He decided to ask her about the rumors surrounding her daughter and son-in-law and, in a rare moment, she answered.
"Haters gonna be haters and there's nothing we can do about that," Knowles said. When asked if everything is OK between Beyonce and Jay Z, she responded: "Everything's perfect." And she can't be bothered with what the tabloids are writing about the two: "I just don't even read the bull, you know?"
Well said, Mama Knowles.
Rumors of a possible Beyonce and Jay Z split have been circulating for months. Back in May, it appeared Beyonce had her IV engagement tattoo removed from her ring finger. Then, in early July, after she took to the stage and changed the lyrics to the breakup ballad "Resentment" during a concert stop, fans pointed out that the change could be in reference to her 12-year relationship with the rapper. Since then, the tabloids have claimed the 32-year-old is shopping for her own New York City apartment and turning to Gwyneth Paltrow for divorce advice.
The powerhouse couple is still touring for On The Run, which will go through mid-September. Beyonce will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 24, and accept the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Maybe she will use the moment to quash the breakup rumors once and for all?
