Beyonce's mother confirms Lemonade theme

10 May 2016, 14:40

Loas Angeles - Beyoncé's mother has confirmed 'Lemonade' is about ''cheating and betrayal''.

The 'Formation' singer's new visual LP fuelled speculation her husband Jay Z - with whom she has four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy - had been unfaithful and though Tina Lawson didn't confirm the record is autobiographical, she thinks many people will be able to relate to the themes on the record.

Speaking to ABC13, she said: ''People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes, that's a part of it because that is something you have to heal from.''

Tina - whose marriage to the 34-year-old superstar's father Mathew Knowles ended in 2011 after he fathered a child with another woman - thinks people can relate to the record because everyone has been ''betrayed and lied to''.

She added: ''And it's about the pain. And it's about the healing process.

''It's about how do you get past that and move on.''

But Tina hopes the album can be ''healing'' for victims of infidelity because its overriding theme is of ''hope and redemption''.

She added: ''If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people.''

Tina is now happily married to actor Richard Lawson but recalled how she turned to Beyoncé and her sister Solange in the wake of her problems with Mathew.

She said: ''I remember my first little pity party and I called them crying and you know, they all came.

''We had a slumber party, we watched old movies all night and ate ice cream--it was very healing.

''My children are my rock and they are. It's just been the best gift God could have given me.''

Beyoncé's father, who was previously her manager, recently refused to speculate on the subject of his daughter's new album.

He said: ''There's no way we can get into the mind of Beyoncé. Only Beyoncé can answer specifically who she was talking to ... I would rather not get into speculation. My answer is I don't know.''
