Beyonce's Mama Didn't Lie At The BET Awards

It was just a little mistake.

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 Cosmosuspicious 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."

Hello guys first let me sayI just got a wind of the mess that has festered since last night ! The fact that I supposedly lied about my Daughters concert . First of all I did make a mistake on the city and the day . 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. I want to point out that there is a nine hour time difference and it is an eleven to 12 hour Flight that equates to 19 - 20 hrs to get there! 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. Any one with good sence 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 to her. Although everyone told her this is going to take a toll on your tour because you will only have one day to rehearse and you and the dancers will have been off for a month. You will be exhausted because you get to the states on Thursday rehearse for Bet fly to Mexico to be with your Sister for her Birthday on Friday get back to La on Sunday and start rehearsals at Bet At 7 am . (Who else would get three hours of sleep like that? ) Book a huge private plane to carry your dancers and creative staff and choreographers road Managers and pay for it out of your own pocket. Who does that? Please understand that I absolutely am not doing this for anyone but my self ! I know I owe no explanation to anyone but I am tired of people writing my story. So I chose to tell my own ! Thanks for listening❤️continued on next post
