Beyoncé's Mom Refutes All Those Messy Divorce Rumors, Says Haters Gonna Hate

Bey and Jay are just "perfect," she says.

TMZ caught up with Tina Knowles (opens in new tab) in LA yesterday and, naturally, asked her all sorts of questions about the state of her daughter Beyoncé and Jay Z's marriage. "You want to give me an opportunity [to set the record straight]?" Tina responded, taking the camera ambush in good, sarcastic stead, "How kind of you to do that!"

"Haters gon' be haters," she continued, "and there's nothing we can do about that." Everything between Beyoncé and Jay Z, she says, is "perfect," and she doesn't even read "the bull" that's claiming otherwise — even though she must be aware of some/most of the gossipy chatter, because otherwise she wouldn't even know where TMZ is coming from.
