The star’s mum Tina Knowles, 70, took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to Butch.

In a post shared with her 4.1 million followers, she said: “My Beautiful big brother Butch went to be with God this weekend. I will miss him so much! He was a career Air Force man.

“He loved riding motorcycles, was a black belt in karate and had the most beautiful green eyes and good looks.

“He was a great story teller.

“He had an incredible wife Jeanette and devoted daughter Dana, two beautiful grandchildren Yvette and Roland.

“He was greatly loved. Sail on Butch.”
