Miss Tina Lawson, mother to Beyoncé Knowles, took a leap of faith on Sunday (July 31), literally. In a series of Instagram videos, Lawson announced that she was taking a “leap of faith that the world in 2017 is gonna be a better, safer place.” To symbolize this new hope, she decided to jump off Jay Z’s yacht, from levels high up, while visiting Nice and the French Riviera with family.
In one of the videos, a skeptical 4-year-old Blue Ivy can be heard asking her grandmother if she knows how to really swim. “Don’t scare me, Blue!” Lawson responded. While Hov, in another clip, is heard shouting out some words of wisdom: “Don’t jump without a count!”
