Beyonce's Mom

Sells Texas Mansion

at $500k Discount

Beyonce
's mom really wanted out of her Texas-sized Houston mansion, so much so, she was willing to knock $500,000 off the listing price to get it sold, TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Tina Knowles tried to unload her 8,885-square-foot pad last September for a whopping $3.499 Million ... but it sat on the market for nine months with no takers.

She finally sold it this summer ... but for a whole lot less than she planned, accepting an offer of $2,962,500.

The house is a steal for the new owner -- it has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, sits on 2.6 acres, and boasts a resort style pool, gym AND a giant media room where you can watch Beyonce tear it up in "Goldfinger" as many times as you want.

Ya know, 'cause it's such a great movie.

Why would anyone buy a house that looks like an old office building? I would worry that people would walk in the front door asking if we were open.

And the dumbass staff at TMZ weekend interns strikes again. How old was Beyonce when "GOLDFINGER" was made. Man, that was some fine acting in a film that was made at least twenty years before she was born.
.
The stupidity of the weekend staff never ceases to amaze me. Can you people GOOGLE to make sure you get shyt right?

BEYONCE WAS IN GOLDMEMBER WHERE SHE PROVED SHE HAD NO TALENT AS AN ACTRESS, BEYONCE PROVED IT AGAIN WHEN JENNIFER HOLIDAY ACTED CIRCLES AROUND HER IN DREAM GIRLS. BEYONCE IS ABOUT AS GOOD AN ACTRESS AS MADONNA IS, IN FACT BEYONCE IS LIKE A BLACK MADAONNA, JUST TOTALLY OVERRATED

Who the heck decorated that place. I have never seen such a messed up bunch of styles and eras in one place. Did they say, oh, I like this, this and this, and then just shake them in a hat and put them together? Once again, money does not buy taste, style or class.
