Mama Tina Knowles is going on a social media hiatus and it appears to be all over recent drama revolving around Jennifer Hudson.

On Wednesday, Tina took to Instagram to reveal that she’ll be “taking a break from social media as this is the bad side of it. There are people who make thier living off of negativity.”

So what exactly led to the sudden exit?

Tina recently accidentally liked a comment on Instagram criticizing Jennifer Hudson, the songstress who also appeared alongside Beyonce in the 2006 film, Dream Girls.

The comment, written under a video of Hudson, Beyonce and co-star Aniko Noni Rose singing, read: “Jhud sounds terrible.” Per the usual, folks on the social networking website took the “like” by the reigns and ran with it, creating a firestorm of comments.

In efforts to defend herself, Tina posted a lengthy message suggesting that it was all a misunderstanding and that she would never speak ill of Hudson. “I am writing this commentary for Jennifer Hudson and not for the evil mean people that are making this into a social media ugly thing,” she wrote.

The 62-year-old continued, “I’ve known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!”

“My children worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it . They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful . and somehow maybe I touched a button,” she wrote. “But the truth is I was on my Instagram and someone commented on Beyoncé (positive) by the way , and I went to look at their site and saw some good videos and performances of Beyoncé I came across the video of her and Jennifer (which I totally enjoyed) and I was looking at them I didn’t even look at the comments or what people were saying till just now. and I absolutely would not have touched a like or dislike on one of these sites.”

Beyonce’s mom added, “I think if you look through my Instagram you’ll see that I am not a hater and I am not negative about people so to Jennifer for my mistake of accidentally touching it which I don’t remember doing I really apologize I totally love and Admire you and I’d have to be pretty stupid to do that knowing it would be everywhere.”

J Hud has yet to comment.

Well they kept that under the radar. Gina Torres and Laurence Fishburne have split, but no one knew until now.

Photos of Torres kissing a mystery man hit the net Tuesday prompting folks to speculate that she was cheating on her husband of 14 years. But, according to Torres the couple have been separated since early fall of last year. The actress confirmed the news to PEOPLE in a statement saying:

“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.”

“Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”

Torres and Fishburne, 56, married in 2002 and share one daughter, Delilah Fishburne. The Black-ish star also has two children from a previous marriage: Montana and Langston Fishburne.

On Tuesday, Page Six posted photos of Torres kissing a new man, who has now been identified as Kevin Wright, an entrepreneur and solar energy investor from Utah who now lives in Southern California. According to the site, Wright was married for 20 years and recently split with his wife.

No word on how long the two have been dating.

In January 2016 Torres still referred to herself as Fishburne’s wife in an interview with Hello Magazine. But in September 2016, Torres told the New York Times that she had quit the USA drama “Suits” after six years partly because “my personal life needed to be tended to.”

It’s now being reported that she will be starring in a “Suits” spinoff slated to debut in 2018. She will also executive produce.
