Last September, Blue Ivy Carter, the 3-year old daughter of Beyonce and Jay Z saw her grandma, Tina Knowles, with actor Richard Lawson and said, “Oh, ya’ll look beautiful. When are ya’ll getting married?'” In April, the two did marry on a yacht in Newport Beach, California.
By July, Tina Knowles Lawson was on the cover of Ebony for their “$exy Forever” shoot. Lawson says when she was asked to do the cover, she “had some reservations, but as I thought of all the women who tell me daily that I have inspired them to live a wholehearted life, which includes your Sexuality. I am proud to be 61 years old and to not be putting limitations on my lifestyle. We can still be $exy and vibrant, fashionable, classy and fly until the day we die!”
Last weekend, those words may have haunted her as she was rushed to a hospital after an asthma attack. Lawson said, “I came to Atlanta with my hubby for an award show. I had an Asthma attack and wound up in a hospital here. Hope to be out tomorrow! ! Pray for me!”
Thankfully, Lawson can continue to be vibrant, classy and $exy. In fact, she wrote to her fans the next day: “Happy Day!! Getting out of the hospital. On my way to the airport to go home. Thanks for the prayers!!!!”
No one was really aware of Lawson’s ailment. She hid it quite well and is adamant on living a healthy lifestyle. She eats well and exercises, which explains her great figure. But everyone is happy that she is doing well.
Just goes to show you, the grim reaper waits for no one, even the famous or rich. But, if you’re fly enough and you eat well and exercise you just might buy some extra time. Better live large while you can.
