The photos featured Tamla, her daughter, Lyric, and her mother, Claudette Robinson. The three beautiful women looked smashing in their coordinated pastel outfits as they posed for the photos.
Tamla concluded her caption saying that she was earnestly looking forward to the day that they would all be together again as a family after the pandemic is over. Tamla's followers fell in love with the Robinson women and took to the comments section to praise the three gorgeous women.
Tamla's parents split in a messy and public manner.
In 1985, Claudette and Smokey Robinson's marriage became a thing of the past when they went through a messy and public divorce. At the time, Tamla was about fourteen years old.
The painful memories of the divorce were brought up again when Smokey decided to file a lawsuit against his ex-wife, claiming that she no longer had legal rights to their music. His team said:
"As the sole author of the musical compositions at issue, [Smokey] has the exclusive right…to terminate his assignments of copyrights after a certain number of years."
Claudette was prepared for the attack, and the pair began brawling it out once again in the court, nearly thirty years after they split.
The pair had separated after a very publicized infidelity scandal involving Smokey that came to light only one week after their 25th anniversary. Smokey had also fathered a child with the other woman.
Before the relationship went spiraling down, Claudette and Smokey also had a son together, Berry William Robinson, before they welcomed Tamla.
Despite the drama that filled up most of her younger years, Tamla moved on and welcomed her daughter, Lyric. She has sonce built a wonderful life for herself.
