Beyoncé ''misses'' Tina Knowles.

The 33-year-old singer is glad her mother - who divorced her father and former manager Matthew Knowles in 2011 - has found happiness again with new husband Richard Lawson but is worried she won't get to spend as much time with her anymore.

A source told Life & Style magazine: ''Beyoncé barely ever sees her mother and she misses her terribly. Last year, after Beyoncé threw her mom a big birthday party in New Orleans, Tina just flew in and flew out and spent no time with her.

''Beyoncé has been estranged from her dad, Matthew, for years and now she feels like she's distant from her mom too. She's lonelier than ever.''

Tina - who married 'Poltergeist' actor Richard, 68, in a lavish ceremony on 12 April - recently revealed she banned the 'Pretty Hurts' hitmaker and her husband, Jay Z, from performing at her nuptials because she wanted to spend some quality time with them.

She said: ''We didn't want them to work. We wanted them to enjoy the day and not have the pressure of it.''
