Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles has moved on from her marriage split by striking up a romance with actor Richard Lawson.

The pop superstar's mother filed for divorce from manager Mathew Knowles in 2009 after he was accused of fathering a lovechild with another woman.

They were officially divorced in 2011, and now two years later Tina has gone public with her new relationship.

The fashion designer walked the red carpet at the Angel Ball in New York City on Tuesday (29Oct13) with Lawson, best known for his roles in Poltergeist and 1980s sci-fi series V.
