Beyonce kicked off the BET Awards last Sunday with a powerful performance of "Freedom," so it was surprising when the superstar wasn't around to accept awards she won later in the program. Instead, mama Tina Lawson came onstage and said that Bey left to catch a flight for a concert in London. According to Cosmo, suspicious fans are questioning Tina about how true this is. Beyonce's London show is on July 2 and it doesn't take a week to fly there from Los Angeles, where the BET Awards are taped.
Tina took to Instagram to clear up the entire mess. She explains that she just mixed up her daughter's crazy schedule and it's no indication of Beyonce's lack of commitment to the BET Awards . "First of all I did make a mistake on the city and the day...well it turned out to be in the UK but wrong city," she says. Instead of leaving for London, it seems that Beyonce was going to Sunderland, England, where she has a show today.
Mama Tina then blasts haters for questioning her daughter's integrity. "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." Tina says that the award show appearance meant her daughter had to sacrifice rehearsal for her own tour. "That was really important to to her."
