Tina Knowles opens up about her relationship with Beyoncé – PinkNews

It may be hard to believe that Beyoncé wasn’t always as confident as she is today, but Tina Knowles has revealed that her daughter was bullied growing up.

The ‘II Most Wanted’ hitmaker may have made history with Cowboy Carterbut her mother opened up about her relationship with Beyoncé, revealing that the singer was “shy” in her youth.

Speaking about her relationship with the pop-turned-country singer, the Knowles matriarch said in a video for Vogue: “She was very shy and she was picked on a little bit.

“But the day she stood up for someone – she didn’t stand up for herself, she stood up for him. I get emotional talking about this. I was just, I couldn’t have been more proud of her.

Knowles also spoke about his younger daughter, singer Solange, saying “she’s always been an activist.”

The businesswoman – who inspired Beyoncé’s hair care line – also opened up about Destiny’s Child band member Kelly Rowland, who she considers her daughter. The singer moved in with the Knowles family when she was young.

“Kelly was always that kid who was just trying to protect everyone,” Knowles added. “I remember her with her best friend Barbara and her as a mediator and just as a little peacemaker.”

“Every child is different!” But it’s all so special. I believe children are born with their personalities,” she wrote on Instagram. “My three daughters have all handled things very differently. Learn their personalities and respect their individuality.

“Never compare the negatives, always praise the positive differences, and be careful about the things you can brag about. They love it and it encourages positive behavior.

It comes as Knowles defended Rowland after she berated a security guard at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

“And just like that, she @kellyrowland graces another rug with her incredible glorious beauty, class and grace!!!! Sipping champagne and living your best life,” Knowles captioned a video of the “Commander” singer at the annual amfAR gala.

“It just goes to show that stupid monkey, keep failing to show up!!! to bigger and better things,” she concluded.
