Beyonce's mother 'obsessed' with gossip mags

Beyonce Knowles' mother "gets a kick" out of reading gossip about her daughter.

The 'Sweet Dreams' singer has revealed her mother Tina is obsessed with racy tabloid magazines, often buying up to 20 at a time while Beyonce stands next to her "praying" no one will see her.

The 28-year-old star said: "You know what? My mother loves to read celeb magazines, especially the racy tabloids! I can't believe it sometimes. She'll go to this magazine store in New York and buy 20 magazines while I'm standing next to her.

"I'm just praying nobody recognises me while my mom is stacking up those magazines! But she loves reading the gossip about celebs and movie stars.

"I tell her a lot of the stuff isn't true, but she says she gets a kick out of reading all the nonsense that gets printed, even about me!"

Even though Tina – who filed for divorce from Beyonce’s father Matthew this month - likes to laugh about the false stories written about her daughter, Beyonce couldn't cope without her, particularly when she is on tour.

The star added: "My mom and my cousin are the leaders of my entourage. They're with me to help me stay grounded and relax and avoid going out on the town, which is something I rarely do anyway."
