Tina Knowles

Beyoncé and Jay Z have remained silent about their relationship status, but one family member is putting an end to the breakup rumors.

TMZ caught up with Bey’s mother Tina Knowles while she was leaving lunch with Kelly Rowland in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

When asked whether her daughter and son-in-law were headed for divorce, she took the opportunity to set the record straight.

“Everything’s perfect!” said Knowles, adding that the Carters’ relationship is “very good.”

She also brushed off the naysayers. “Haters gon’ be haters, and there’s nothing we can do about that.”

In recent weeks, Beyoncé and Jay Z have been spotted together at the go-kart track, a restaurant opening, and on stage during their “On the Run Tour,” which will hit Paris on September 12 and 13.

Hear Mama T go on the record.

Beyoncé and Jay Z have a need for speed. In between dates on their tour earlier this month, the superstar couple rented out indoor go-kart center K1 Speed to celebrate Jay Z’s niece Teanna’s 16th birthday.

Queen Bey put on her helmet and seatbelt and got behind the wheel of a red go kart, while Jay held Blue Ivy’s hand and walked around the raceway.

After crossing the finish line, a barefoot Bey took her 1st place position on the podium and showed off her “flawless” abs. The birthday girl threw up the Roc before being presented with a cake that said “Happy Sweet 16 TT.”

The Carters wrapped the U.S. leg of their “On the Run Tour” earlier this month and will head to Paris on September 12 and 13. The concerts will be taped for an HBO special to air on September 20.
