Tina Knowles Reveals Daughter Beyonce was Bullied

Beyoncé has spent decades dazzling the world with her talent and poise, but her journey to becoming a global superstar wasn’t always smooth sailing, as her mother, Tina Knowles, recently revealed.

In an intimate conversation with Vogue, the 70-year-old matriarch opened up about her eldest daughter’s childhood struggles, shedding light on the shy beginnings of one of music’s most formidable figures.

“Beyoncé, she was very shy and she got bullied a bit,” Knowles said in a clip posted on Instagram.

“But the day that she stood up for someone — she didn’t stand up for herself [but] she stood up for them… I’m getting emotional talking about it. I was just, I couldn’t have been more proud of her.”

The Knowles family’s legacy of love and support extends beyond Beyoncé. Tina, who also shares 37-year-old daughter Solange with ex-husband Mathew Knowles, has always celebrated the unique qualities of her children.

“Each child is different! But all so special. I believe kids are born with their personalities,” she wrote in her Instagram caption.

Tina’s motherly affection isn’t limited to her biological daughters. She counts Kelly Rowland, who moved in with the Knowles family at age 11, as one of her own.

“Kelly was always the peacemaker,” Tina said, describing how the now 43-year-old actress and singer is very protective of her loved ones.

Reflecting on her youngest daughter, Solange, Tina shared a touching story that captured Solange’s early passion for activism. “Solange, was her signing a petition in school, she was only in like fifth grade and she was out getting petitions signed,” she recalled. “So she’s always been an activist.”

“My three girls all handled things very differently. Learn their personalities and respect the individuality,” she wrote. “Never compare the negatives, always praise the positive differences and pay attention to the things that you can brag on about them. They love it and it encourages positive behavior.”
