Beyonce’s mother, Tina Lawson

Tina Lawson, the mother of American singer, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has shared a fierce throwback photo of herself when she was 38 posing in an animal print jumpsuit as she laid across a black couch.

Tina, now 66, via her Instagram wrote in her caption: “I am 38 on this photo! Took it on my lunch break from the salon with 6 people under the dryer with wraps, And used to take a couple hours to dry. I still love leopard My Girls used to hate it! That’s why I loved Cookie Lyons so much!

“Yes, I was Cookie Lyons before there was a Cookie Lyons. With my animal prints. @tarajiphenson,” she added.
