Tina Knowles-Lawson Said A White Woman Asked Her Why Did She Let Beyoncé Marry JAY-Z

Tina Knowles-Lawson wants to change the stereotypes of Black men that are portrayed in the media, which is why she’s sharing a personal story involving her daughter Beyoncé and son-in-law JAY-Z. In an interview with CBS Mornings to promote her upcoming project, Profiled: The Black Man, the mother discussed an incident where a white woman questioned how she could let her daughter marry The Blueprint rapper.

“I can remember getting on a plane, and an older white woman saying, ‘Oh, your son is a gangster rapper, right? How did you let him marry your daughter?'” Knowles-Lawson said in a preview clip, referring to her son-in-law.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z tied the knot in April 2008, and have since welcomed three children together: 10-year-old Blue Ivy, and 4-year-old twins Rumi and Sir. 

“It was just shocking to me and I said, ‘No, actually, my son is a CEO,'” Tina said. “She didn’t think of him as a CEO, or even a talented celebrity that was a great businessman. At that time, I remember thinking, ‘I can’t be mad at her, because that is what the media portrays.'”
