Tina Knowles opened up about Solange Knowle's emotional problems in a sat down interview with Maria Shriver on Friday.

Tina discussed Solange's emotional issues and said she couldn't handle sister Beyonce's growing fame.

She said she put both Beyonce and Solange in counseling after Beyonce grew "irritated" with her little sister's poor coping skills.

As you know, Solange was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression, and possible ADHD as an and adult.

Tina says Beyonce's fame ballooned at an early age, and Solange couldn't handle it. So she'd take Wednesdays off from work for "Solange Day" -- a day dedicated to loving on Solange.

Tina also revealed her daughters saw a counselor because Beyonce would sometimes get irritated with her little sister, and the counseling helped to ease that tension.

Maria Shriver is the ex-wife of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

  • Trey

    yep...I can see that

  • Mrs. King

    Solange grows tired of protecting her weak arse sister. Maybe if Ms. Tina treated them equally, Solange wouldn't need a day. JMHO

  • tintin

    why in the world would her mother discuss something so personal. She's fucked up for that shit.

  • what?why

    I Love Solange - "Solange Day!"

  • Miss Thang

    It must be hard being the sibling of a celebrity. I can't stand my brother and I can't imagine if he was famous, especially since I know too much about his nasty ways. I'd be so fed up with people worshiping his annoying, stankin ass.

  • Yardgirl

    OMG!!! Why would she talk about such personal things??? As if Solange wasn't emotional enough!! BOOO!!! For shame Miss Tina, for shame!!

    I look into Solanges' eyes and I see a chick I would flucks with. Beyonce on the other hand looks about as deep as a puddle........

  • FukkFolks2018

    She admitted in the interview that she claims Kelly as her daughter too. Maria said 2...she corrected her and said I raised Kelly too since she was 10 years old.

    I am listening to it right now.

  • NY_bornNraised

    exactly

  • Tbay _

    I'm surprised Tina giving up private information like that. She needs to dial it back and go back to talking about how she would design those god awful bumpkin chic fringe and rhinestone outfits destiny's child used to wear back in the day.

  • Miss Thang

    yes, and it gives you insight into how Tina probably treated them differently growing up. She probably gave more attention to Beyonce and protected her. You know Tina would never reveal something so personal about Beyonce. She would never say "Jay Z cheated on my daughter and she had to go through counseling to deal with it."
    It is everyone's job in that family to protect the cash cow. I am actually emotional right now because I'm sure Solange has had to go through a lot in her family due to the favoritism. That is heartbreaking.

  • Question Everything

    All of them were soooooo jealous of Beyonce. Kelly singing about it, Solange going to therapy... Sheesh!

  • NeverSurprised

    What in the Preferred-Child hell is this???

    Why on earth is this woman discussing Solange's personal issues in an open forum? And why make her feel even worse by talking about Beyonce's "early success." Just say "Both of my daughters are very talented and I'm equally proud of each of them", and leave it at that.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I always give my kids sep. time. Still to this day. Right now me and 23 yo are commuting together. A whole hour of my day she gets of just me. I take my 13 yo out sometimes with just her and I. It is important. You dont want them to feel like they are in the shadow of the other sib. My parents used to do this for us too.

    *There is nothing wrong to admitting anything in re to family counseling or any type of counseling period. I dont hear anything this lady did wrong?

  • XoXo

    Wow! Just put all your business out there. That should’ve remained private.

  • XoXo

    Right! And as if Solange can’t read or hear. Dang!

  • Roxie Moxie

    Why can't some things just stay "personal"? Does anyone know what that means anymore?

  • Miss Thang

    I think it's natural. I mean, remember they started as a group. Some of the Jacksons were jealous of Michael. Some of the Supremes were jealous of Diana. Like, that's just human nature. Especially when you know someone personally and you know their weaknesses and low points so it may make you feel like, "Why her? and not me? I'm just as talented and I work just as hard." It takes luck too and having the right people behind you.

  • FukkFolks2018

    So...everyone missed the memo that she took BOTH girls to counseling? Not just Solange? Did anyone read? Did anyone listen to the interview? She is not dogging Solange out. She took them to counseling to be better sibs to the other. Its up top in black and white?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Welp...Camp Bey will be confiscating Miss Tina's phone and cancelling all her appearances by the end of the day... she shares too much along with Matthew "Dip it Low" Knowles...

  • Guest

    I am surprised at this revelation from Mama Tina. They probably showed Beyonce favoritism though. Same thing happened to my sis and I growing up. She still has not healed from it.

  • Judi Lauren

    Wow?? That's your sibling, though...

  • FOR COMMENT

    FACTS

  • Guest

    That's good that she did that. They seem close now.

  • FOR COMMENT

    Solange is not a robot and Beyonce is.

  • Blue

    Thanks mom. Way to put your door'ter on Front Street.

  • Elle

    Exactly. This article is written with a huge "slant." Sibling rivalry and discord is a given in all families so imagine when one sibling is mega successful. No matter how hard parents tried, the non-famous sibling will always feel neglected. So I think Mrs. Tina was speaking on it in a general sense and not an "oh Solange was so super jealous SHE needed therapy."

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly!!?

  • NeverSurprised

    I know. I cant believe it. What kind of mother would do this?

  • SaltineCrackers

    Tina talks too damn much.

  • Miss Thang

    and???? I know too damn much about him and I don't like his ass. He's a woman beater and dead beat dad. If he weren't my sibling I'd never waste a moment of my time with him.

  • NeverSurprised

    Do Beyonce and Solange have different fathers? Obviously no one knows for certain, but Im just wondering if there are rumors to that effect?

    I ask because often a mother will have a preference for one child if she had a different degree of love for that child's father.

  • Guest

    Yeah, jealousy is natural. It's when people act out that I have a problem with. Especially adults. Children get a pass. They do not know better. Mama Tina did the right thing when they were younger because now they seem very close.

  • NeverSurprised

    "Bumpkin chic". Lord, please have mercy. ??

  • Yardgirl

    That’s what I said?

  • Cannelle

    You were the favorite?

  • MsPam

    The wicked witch from the South will say and do anything to stay in the news! Quite as it is kept Tina wants to be as famous Beyoncé.

  • MsPam

    Nope!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Folks just took that ball and ran all the way down the field with it. You are absolutely correct this was the meaning of that interview. And not just sib sucess. They are 5 years apart in age. That plays a factor too. Two older girls and then Solange. By the time they were 13...Solange was EIGHT. Your younger sib is seen as a pest. Add in Bey's bff was living with them and you want to do bff stuff not be a big sister. Its not a hard concept to grasp.

  • Guest

    Yes. I have two children. A boy and a girl. I was so conscious about favoritism while raising them because some parents do this without even realizing it.

  • Mrs. King

    Sheit at least ur honest. Often time we condone bullsheit of our siblings behavior, enabling them. Kudos Miss Thang

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Maria Shriver?

  • Faithz

    So true, why would Tina do that, Dang.

  • Cannelle

    I was in a restaurant recently and in walked a woman with two small children 3 - 5 years old. She looked to be their grandmother. They sat next to us. Throughout the entire meal, she mostly ignored the little boy and was fawning over the little girl. The little boy was mostly silent; she only acknowledged him to chastise him about spilling some of his food, which it looked like he had done on accident. I don't know their lives, but I felt badly for him. I told my SO that the grandmother might not have realized how her behavior was perceived by strangers.

  • Ni Ni

    Im glad to hear this. I used to feel so sorry for po lil solange. People used to make fun of her looks and then it looks like she often got left out. I remember seeing a portrait of just Obama, Michelle, Beyonce, Tina, and Matthew. Sometimes, i even forgot about her myself.

  • Faithz

    Tina Just Killed my Spirit , she need to
    Quietly Stfu, She would have never done that to Big Bird,
    AKA Beyonce...

  • Faithz

    Ditto.

  • Cannelle

    I agree, Kudos to you for integrity. I too have family members that I don't like and don't make any bones about it. If they are bad, they are bad, whether they are related to me or not.

  • Faithz

    True.

  • MsVAllDay

    But everything about them is personal!

  • Guest

    Wow. smh. Sometimes because one child is getting more attention the other one acts out. My sister did that. She would always get in trouble.

  • NuBeauty

    LMAO....Mama Tina got the Quincy Jones syndrome.....get older, said " F*&k It"....and spilling the tea, LMAO. Well, at least you can see that the Knowles sisters are just like others sisters. Fuss, Fight, get on each others nerves but we all can see, they love each other very much....and that is all that matters.

  • Ni Ni

    She dont talk as much as Matthew lol.

  • MsVAllDay

    I was wondering about that. I just said to myself I need to see the video for myself before passing judgement.

  • Faithz

    Solange looks Beautiful in the Pictures.

  • Owww76

    I said the same thing about ole witches of eastwick looking Tina. She screams thirst!

  • Cannelle

    Yes, that could be, because my own sister was like that too.

    I don't know the lives of the people in the restaurant, but I looked at the little boy's face, and he seemed quiet and alert. I remember thinking how reserved and mature he seemed for about 5 years old. Anyway, this type of thing happens all of the time, but I still felt a little sorry for him.

  • NuBeauty

    I'm pretty sure that Mama Tina, Beyonce and Solange preapproved the questions first. If they didn't....Beyonce or Solange is not going to step to Tina....and Mrs. Lawson KNOWS THAT! She not worried or press......but she sure let some gossip leak, lol. Love it Ms. T....keep talking hun!!! sidenote....she cracks me up with her corny jokes

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I have two younger brothers (I'm the oldest and only girl) and the baby of us all is just how you described your brother. My other brother (the middle child) is totally opposite. Married and great with his kids, full on father & daddy. My youngest brother though? Woman beater, not in his kid's lives, disrespectful to family but respectful towards his "friends", and is an alcoholic. I feel you @disqus_0ntdVbQf4m:disqus !

  • Owww76

    LOL! they had to be the worst dressed R&B group all that shimmery and glittery mess. it just screamed i made this on the sewing machine the night before LOL!

  • Strip Club Veteran

    That's fucked up to discuss that subject when it's only going to further her issues now. Not a fan of Tina witch looking ass. Furthermore, what does Maria Shriverand and Arnold Schwarzenegger have to do with this post?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Everything discussed in therapy is supposed to be confidential and here comes Miss Tina just telling Solange's biz. Not cool Miss Tina!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    And some lady out there has her 10 year old treating their 5 year old like purity shit and cant figure out why, where is the animosity coming from. Why the younger sib is upset all the time. Im so sick of us immed. going into some kind of keep your biz to yourself mode when it comes to counseling on ANY level.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    That would've been the best response in the interview.

  • Joy King

    Are we really surprised. Tina is always yapping. She loves attention just like both her daughters and her ex husband. But Beyonce is her cash cow, so she'll throw anybody, including her own child under the bus for her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Maria conducted the interview with Tina. She has been a journalist for the past 40 years

  • iWasteTime

    Shout out to them for getting counseling and allowing this story to be told.
    My community is so hush hush, condescending and dismissive of real mental health issues. We've seen so many siblings and child stars themselves fall far and hard do to lack of support from parents and getting real and healthy coping tools.
    You have parents that produce and sell the sex tapes and you have parents that say you are out of control lets bring this in now.
    I'd also love for y'all to do your googles ...

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im out. I cant. Happy Mothers Day to all the folks who feel on the inside they are a mom to some living thing, animal or person. I say that bc I dont want to say a mom specifically bc hell I aint know that was offensive until the Ciara post. Some of YALL are the ones who need counseling and reading comprehension skills as well. Toodle fukkin loo.

    Girl. Dont even attempt. Hugs and kisses and enjoy your weekend.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Her mom does it now!! She be all on IG talking about her baby bey she do it so much I don’t think she realizes it on top of all of that solange isn’t talented as well but for years that talent was overshadowed what normal person wouldn’t have an issue with that. She most likely couldn’t go to the school she wanted or keep friends because her life May have revolved around bey schedule! Am doing I don’t know like how this is worded it’s almost implying she was jealous of her sister and I don’t think that was the case I think she may have felt like dam what about what I want to do with my life? Chile some of these celebrity’s parents need to learn to take a backseat and stfu her and Matthew talk too dam much about the wrong stuff. And won’t part their lips about stuff they need to be addressing ?

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Omg funny as hell.. ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Every parent has a favorite child. It's clear who Tina's favorite is -- and THAT'S why Solange needed counseling. What Tina did was wrong. She's more of an attention hog than Beyonce.

  • king shun

    she just really thought she should be the one with the limelight thats why she gave it up to lil Wayne and wrote that cringe worthy letter and in return he called her a crazy bitch.... and thats why she beat on Jay -z she just mad jealous and cannot find her lane

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Right is right and wrong is wrong idc who you are! Now only if Nicki felt that way about her child molesting brother.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    You're right about that. Not sure why I didn't stop to think about that as well knowing how private they all are. I guess I was putting myself in Solange's shoes and would've had an issue with my mom telling the world we went through counseling due to the issues they had. But you're right, Solange & Bey had to approve this prior to her openly discussing it.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Huh? What letter you speak of? And when she let gizmo hit? Where the hell was I ???

    I'M NOT JUDGING! I say this with LOVE! ????????

  • Miss Thang

    "Nawl everything about Beyonce is personal!! They always dry snitching on solange."
    Yep! Beyonce is always protected. She is the family business. Solange can be thrown under the bus at any time. They are never going to say anything about Bey that isn't positive.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yeah, someone in the Ciara post was "offended" by how people randomly tell other women "Happy Mother's day". FukkFolks came back with a classy response.

    I never realized people got offended by something as positive as wishing women HMD. I get her (the person who was offended) reasoning for being offended how some women either don't have kids or aren't able to. I dunno, there are worse things to be offended about but I can't speak for those without kids or unable to have children of their own. I have 2 bad a** boys and if anyone who is not able to have kids wants one, we can work it out! They're already potty trained, can dress themselves, shower by themselves, one is already graduated, too.

    I really hope Solange doesn't take her life behind this. She clearly has mommy and daddy issues. Poor Solange. ?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    While I understand your pov on the subject of mental illness as it relates to it being taboo in some communities. But I also feel like ppl should be allowed to tell their own stories of victory but hey maybe solange Gave her mom the ok on this I would have loved for this to have been like a group interview with all three of them since they were discussing it and how it affected everyone. Also I thought we were past mental illness being taboo? Maybe because I work around it it seems like nobody has an issue in talking about it and getting help I just thought it was something that folks didn’t go around advertising like a badge of honor. I have friends and family that share their stories and struggles you know while we sitting around talking and stuff ?????

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    ????? You know how to get some mess started!

  • Scorpio

    This is probably why Solange had the baby at a young age for attention and self-worth. I'm sure Kelly Rowland struggled too. Its a good thing she won the Grammy to validate herself.

  • king shun

    yeh she thought her and wayne was going to be a power couple..i think thats why her baby daddy left her ....i bet she give that husband hell because he not a big time celeb..she try to play some earthy type of chick but i think she is a failed narcissist....who go hit on their sisters husband like that???i even know a chick killed her sisters husband because she wanted they life they had

  • ShelbyMoore

    She would never EVER discuss Beyonce's issues like this.

  • Smith Jane

    Lmao I remember that ...

  • Wreckognize Game

    IF Solange windmill Tina's azz I would understand. WTF?

    No mess intended. I'm speaking from the heart.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    LMAo ???? they both be spilling and it’s funny because Matthew tell all the old school tea and it’s always about bey so Tina I guess is evening it out by talking about solange.

  • Guest

    You know what, to be honest. I did not notice anything until we became adults. That is when it started playing out. Like Beyonce it annoys me and I try not to be mean when she does things and she has done some unforgivable things. But it is hard. I t hurts me to see other sisters so close and we aren't. I am typing this now and crying at the same time. I gotta go. Have a great weekend.?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Tina can send Solo into a downward spiral with this mess. She needs her azz kicked

  • KLo

    Tina shares responsibility in Solange's issues. Everytime I see Tina, she's with Beyonce. Rarely do you see her with Solange. Tina goes where the $ , lights, camera, and action is . sad and shameful

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Ohhhh no no no I knew nothing about that ! Lord not lil Wayne I’m cringing at the sight. And I think she gave Jay-Z them hands for disrespecting her sister I notice bey didn’t try to hold her back ???

  • king shun

    its was a crazy full page letter talking about how great he was and his special psychic ability to be able to read others minds

  • Miss Thang

    I understand. It is very emotional. I got emotional when thinking about Solange's situation. Because feeling like you're rejected by your mom (that is really what is at the root of this and what causes deep insecurities) does play out in people's lives as they grow up. and hurt people, HURT PEOPLE.

  • Bonita

    That's even too deep. How about as deep as my contact solution when my contacts are soaking in the case.

  • king shun

    because bey know she is a nutcase... them kind of folks will use anything or percive anything to try and release their frustrations out on some one thats what crazy people do...she prolly seethes about B life

  • Miss Thang

    and that's why Bey don't like his ass lol

  • NuBeauty

    I just remember some years ago, I read some where that Beyonce had to check the questions that were going to be asked and approve it or her camp wrote out a list of topics that she was not going to discuss. I think that's why she really don't do interviews. Instead she do documentaries to give you a glimpse into her world. I could be wrong about all of that but she big on separating her career and personal life, which, you cant be mad. Just think about if she did open all the way up.....it would be an overload of her life EVERYWHERE. Plus, she got kids now so i think now its more of protecting her children more than anything. Again, I could so wrong about all this, LOL!!!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I feel ya! I don’t believe in hitting children myself my child is almost grown now and sometimes talks back I’m told it’s because I didn’t whip her as a child. My argument is slave masters beat the slaves into submission to get them to do what they wanted them to do I equate that to whipping kids heck jus look at what it’s called whipping or whooping . Now since my child has got older I can count how many times I put a hand on her but that was because I didn’t process my anger or displeasure properly in that moment each time I’ve felt bad this was in recent year . My dad was against my views on whipping kids but I got my asss whooped as a child and I just didn’t feel that it was necessary for me to do that to my child as a parent. ????? But we all have a right to discipline our children how we see fit as long as we not withholding food beating them until they bruise and driving them off cliffs

  • Yardgirl

    I know right!! ?????

  • NeverSurprised

    I only have one son and he has my entire heart. I don't know how it would feel to split my love with another child -- can't even imagine it.

    But no matter what, I would never, EVER, air my child's innermost, painful feelings with the whole world. I just don't understand Tina's behavior at all.

  • Ni Ni

    But, i wonder if the beyhive gone drag Tina for this lil tidbit like they do Matthew anytime he mentions Beyonce.

  • Miss Thang

    she is not about protecting her personal life. She exploits her personal life for profit.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    You know the answer to that! Hellllll nawl to da naw naw naw!

  • NeverSurprised

    A mother is usually the person that a young child loves most in the world, the person he or she adores.. If you hit a child, you are teaching that child to equate physical pain with love, and that's never a good thing.

    I know you're not a mother Sandy, but for the record, I think you would have been a good one. Give your mom a big hug and kiss on Sunday. Luv you, girl. ??

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Tina Knowles talks too damn much, and she frequently knows not what she speaks.

    I've long heard Solange is jealous of Beyonce but I heard its waaayyyy deeper than a fun day out at the zoo and the ice cream shop along with some kiddie therapy could cure; I heard it was more like an obsession, one in which an often enraged Solange has railed against her parents for what she sees as preferential treatment of Bey.

    I also heard Solange has cut off friends who talk too much about Bey's accomplishments. This has been an ongoing problem.

    Solange, I'm told, made a conscious decision to find a man who was not a "Hollywood type" that would not be so easily captivated by Bey.

    The Tea is, Tina and Matt pretty much DID treat Bey better. Always did, always will.

    Solange has all kinds of self esteem issues because of all of this.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Lol

  • Ni Ni

    ???

  • Tbay _

    Solange look like she about to attack the person that took this picture. I hope her son wasn't in the room when she found out Mama Tina dropping gems for attention again.

  • NuBeauty

    Well, at least she has control of it verse someone just coming into the industry and private life just exposed. We forget Beyonce been in the game for a looooonnngggg time, so she has the right for her choices. Just looks like a great business opportunity when you look at it that way.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    It's sad because your parents are the one to blame but then it comes a time where your sister needs to heal so that you two can have a beautiful relationship. People are fake out here nothing like sisterly bonds. Praying for you.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Tina needs to tell us how she thought Beyonce's non-acting ass was gonna snare an Oscar for her "performance" for lack of a better word, in 'Dreamgirls'.

    Tina resented EVERYBODY for Bey's pedestrian performance but Bey has never been a good actress. She's a magnificent dancer, an adequate enough singer, but acting ain't her bag.

    Tina even trashed Eddie Murphy, saying he should have leveraged his clout to make Bey shine brighter than Jennifer Hudson, a relative newbie when the movie started filming.

    But Tina either missed the point of Dreamgirls or became deliberately uninformed about the subject matter: the movie is based on the Supremes, and everybody knows that. Tina claimed Bey was set up by Hollywood to fail because the movie made her a villain.

    But what Tina was really hot about was the fact that the complex role was more than Bey could handle, and the film proved that.

    More Tea: The Dreamgirls script was actually rewritten slightly to make Bey look more human in the role. Guess who else Bey was able to push aside for the role that pretty much derailed her acting career?

    Faith Evans. Faith had been mentioned as a possibility, along with Deborah Cox and even Ashanti.

    But Bey had the star power. She just didn't have the acting skills.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    OFF topic real quick have y’all heard Emily back with fab showed up to court with him and has had the restraining order dropped and requested the charges be dropped (allegedly) ? I feel bad for her.

  • Mischelle

    I can relate. My sister and I are 14 months apart and I was the favored one because I was quiet, smart, and never gave our parents any trouble. I didn't realize it until we became adults either and one day my sister called me in tears b/c my mom said something to her along the lines of her being a disappoint and not at all like me. It hurt me to my soul and still does. I've always been the protective big sis but couldn't protect her from my own mom.

    She depended on her beauty for attention, but now that's gone, soooo...

    Whoa ?

  • abby500

    Eggzactly!!! I’m here by the internet door waiting on the tea.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL. Chile I hollered when I read that Sandra.

    I'm sure you already know that Tina is living vicariously through Bey. That's the one she saw herself in the most--or at least, what she always wanted to be.

    But Tina had no talent. Just a pretty ole country girl with hick instincts and cute eyes. So she groomed Bey.

    I think Bey is still pretty but that voice is not getting any better.

  • Ni Ni

    Ooh Sandra, you finna get it, lol.

  • SweetTEE

    Solange is probably going to give her mom a mouth full.

    Anyone else hear about that married man that Pepa is dating and his gay porn? Looks like his wife just found out herself.. And it's free and alllll over the internet.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Bey has been overrated since her Destiny's Child days. She was chosen because she was the light skinned one.

    That was pretty much what was intended for Tiny in Xscape but Tiny has the voice, but not the presence to stand out front.

  • abby500

    Right. I didn’t take it as she was showing favoritism.

  • NeverSurprised

    I can think of several reasons to give Jay Z's camel-lookin' ass a good pummeling, so I always figured what Solange did was justified. I'm just sorry she didn't make him cry. That would have been PRICELESS!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Tina you wrong for this girl ?????. Some things should stay within the family.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Its impossible to tell Black Folks that "getting a switch" is basically the same thing as an overseer getting some wood and then laying it on a slave.

    That kind of in-house discipline is just domestic violence rooted in the awful slavery era.

  • NeverSurprised

    I don't think she is a nutcase for giving Jay a beatdown (probably well-deserved), but I think ANY woman who is attracted to Lil Wayne is one pancake short of a stack..

  • SweetTEE

    She really is though. Did she even think beforehand? Geesh.

  • more

    Lmaoo you going back hard

  • SweetTEE

    She went all those years not saying a damn thing..get cheated on and divorced and now she stays talking. Go sit down so damn where.

  • SweetTEE

    I feel you sis. I get aggravated every time I see my mom bc I know all the dirt she does. Family can be the most trifling people you encounter and a lot of us are better people bc we keep our distance.

  • SweetTEE

    I wholeheartedly agree bc I want counseling my damn self, but my issue was the way she did this. The tone rubbed me wrong and I can imagine how Solange might have felt. People already put Bey on a pedestal and constantly call Solo crazy. This was something that Solange should have said.

  • Lotus Flower

    beeeennn said he kelly daddy

  • Fire & Ice

    Some black folks believe hitting kids with sticks, and cords is discipline. This is abuse in my opinion.

  • Cricket404

    It's something Solange has discussed before, Tina is simply giving us a point of view from a parent. I remember seeing how hard Solange would dance with Destiny's Child, she over compensated-looked like she was having a seizure. Poor thing, I know it must be hard to live in the shadows. Makes me look at the elevator scene a little different though, did she do too much? did it irritate Beyonce that she lost her cool and didn't realize that there are cameras everywhere.

  • SweetTEE

    Yea, there's obviously favoritism and that may be the reason Solo is the way she is now. I know for a fact it can damage you psychologically when you feel like your parents don't think you're good enough. She should have let Solange speak her peace on this.

    My first thought.

  • Missy

    I only have one son and he has my entire heart.
    ????????
    Im an only child too however as an adult I wish I had a sibling to talk to & share things with. We sometimes think about giving our baby boy a sibling but Im now 40 sooooo...but I just think about him being alone as an adult...& especially w/me being of a more mature age...its a lot of pressure bc everything/every decision falls on you when your parents get older. But I thank God errryday tht my Mama is still HEALTHY, VIBRANT, HAPPY & IS LIVING HER BEST LIFE?? I just say tht bc when I lost my Grandma last year My Mom had her 8 sisters to grieve with...& responsibilities/ decisions/ business spread across 9 siblings. The thought of having to deal alone jus scares me is all. But Anyways, sorry so long.???

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Wow why would she disclose such personal private emotional struggles from therapy couch about Solange?! So low

  • Missy

    They're already potty trained, can dress themselves, shower by themselves, one is already graduated, too.

    My baby is potty training now...but often times I miss him being a itty bitty baby. They grow up so damn fast.?

  • Munchosgirl

    Where's the link?

  • Munchosgirl

    That's because Solange has said before, she loved her music loud, and she asked her parents could she turn the basement into her bedroom...

  • Munchosgirl

    I had a friend who battled with that when she was pregnant with her second child. She was afraid really that she wouldn't love the new baby as much as the first...

    Solange was a teenage mother because her parents ignored her for the most part. They put everything into Beyonce's career and clearly Beyonce was bish about it.

    And eventhough Solange was a teenage mother, Tina said in an interview, "I keep asking Beyonce when are you going to give me a grandbaby."

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I did read on the Survivor Book (yes I was a hardcore DC fan ?) that Solange went to Beyonce room one day and destroyed ALL of her trophies, in fact it was Solange herself who mentioned it (she had a segment in the book). Now I understand why Beyonce had to share everything up until now with Solange.

    But I do understand her, I have abandonment issues as well. Solange is strong now I wonder why Tina had to bring that up ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Beyonce's mom is from the ol' school and probably at home popping gum saying shid, these my damn kids and I will say wtf I wanna say, I had them! My mom is the same way and will spill it to anyone!

    It is just their era and they just grew up doing that! I remember being a teenager and if I did anything with drama, my mom was on the phone in the kitchen telling my biz to all the family, it's just what they did! You could be standing right there too, they didn't gaf!

    Now, I don't live in the same city as my mom or family anymore and hardly talk to my mom. It's better that way, keeps confusion down. She tries to get info from my sis, who will tell it too but I don't tell either of them chit that I am doing or about my kids. I keep it very brief/general. If they ever read my blog(which they don't) they can only go by assumption what I am up to from looking at that but neither of them can work a computer, internet, let alone a blog site lol.

  • Tammie Reed

    Its Tina's era they all do it! Ol School moms just cant hold it in, they gotta tell somebody lol. My mom is the same way and they are about the same age too! They tell it then feel bad later but then will say, "welp y'all my kids, I had y'all, y'all didn't have me, I'm grown af!"

  • KiMi0414

  • missmiami305

    She telling everything but what I want to know lol. I wanna know what Solange said in that elevator and I want specifics about what Jay did inside the venue. Maybe when Beyonce retires she will write a book lol.

    Bey sounds like a spoiled brat. Talking about she would get irritated at her little sister.

  • missmiami305
  • Layah Jhene

    Man please! They know damn well they ignored Solange and praised Beyonce all their lives and that's why Solange need counseling. She probably felt like the forgotten child. The Child that can't be successful as her big sister. Hell I've seen both Tina and Matthew praised Beyonce and Kelly without even mentioning Solange.

  • Guest©

    I cringed while reading this entire story. Why Mama Tina why?!?

  • Layah Jhene

    THIS!!!!

  • Miss Thang

    Both Matt and Tina favor Bey more though lol

  • Allihave2say

    This is a back handed way f promoting Beyonce and devaluing Solange. This is classic narcissistic mother pretending that she cares about the defective daughter while promoting the golden child. Solange was abandoned because they were focusing on Beyonce. It had nothing to do with Beyonce's success and everything to do with Matthew and Tina ignoring the basement sister in favor of the money maker. The saddest part is/was that Solange is actually Matthew and Tina's daughter; while Beyonce is Tina and Gisel's daughter.

  • Allihave2say

    Narcissism.

  • brooklyn23

    Thats facts

  • Layah Jhene

    Yep!

  • Layah Jhene

    Lmao @ windmill

  • kekeb

    I love Solonge's music and style. Sand Castle Disco is my jam.
    I always thought that her being Beyonce's little sister was a catch-22. If she was not her sister, I think she'd be more popular/sell more records. But, because she's Beyonce's little sister she likely always get compared to and over shadowed by her. and TBH (from the outside looking in) it appears that Tina favors Beyonce more.

  • kekeb

    She wasn't talking when Solonge got pregnant as a teenager ??

  • kekeb

    @NiNi
    True!!!!!!! Omg Matthew motor mouth??

  • kekeb

    I literally NEVER heard that. I hope that's not true. If Kelly is Beyonce's half sister, then she probably needs the same amount of counseling as Solange allegedly received

  • NSYDEOUT

    Yeah, that really bothered me as well like, anyone else would have been roasted for allowing their younger sibling to fight their battles. It wasn't hers to fight but it truly is like " Protect Beyonce at All Cost All The Time". I mean....be human for once. Get mad, say something.

  • NSYDEOUT

    Exactly. No one says anything negative about her, no celebs no outlets.....except......but she tells the truth sometimes.

  • Rayne

    Maria Shriver is the ex-wife of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Say what now ? what she got to do with this story? Kinda lost.?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Probably guilt

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Wow that's something very personal that didn't ever have to be talked about with us outsiders. I really don't see what the issue was considering in DC early years, Solange was a teen. My point is she wasn't even in their group or dancing for them initially.

    So is it safe to say she's not really bipolar or suffer from any mental illness? Instead, she envies her sister's success? So sad, cuz LaToya would never.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL at quietly. Yeah I am stunned at this revelation though. Well, the telling of it.

  • MadGyalGem

    Stop talking to these Yt heffas about ya BLACKass family business.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah, they made her and that lil guy get married to protect Beyonce's image, not Solange. So it must suck to live in her shadow all those years and knowing that no one GAF about how your actions hurt you. I nstead they cared more about how your loose self having ways could hurt your sister's skyrocketing career.

    Poor Solange. Maybe she wanted to whoop Beyonce's ass in that elevator and not Jay Z.

  • Malcom Flex

    Good parenting. At least she didn't say "Imma pray on it" like too many black mothers do!

  • kekeb

    Is she doing this because it's mental health awareness month? Maybe she's trying to destigmatize counseling for us (black people). Otherwise, she should have kept that to herself

  • kekeb

    @Lorenzo you may be on to something about that elevator thing.

    That definitely fits the Your sister is my favorite but Iove you too syndrome. To be honest I think the whole family seems a bit weird. Mom was what they call a stage mom. Her pushing did work Cant deny her mom was grooming her to be solo. I think the group was to get fans. TLC kind of thing Do feel bad for the members that were dropped a. Beyonce didn't need extras looking the the "The Pips" or The Spiners, hell let me throw in the O'Jays. I don't think Solange had the attention or dedication Bey was given. It was always room for Solange. I hv lost all respect for mom. Bey and her mom made sure Solange will be the crazy weird.

  • Alicia Montgomery

    Gosh poor Solange. Tina Knowles don't know how to shut up. Somethings are better left unsaid. This is personal family issues that probably was something small and she blowing it up. Better yet they dotted on Beyonce and Solonge was just the child that was taking up space in second place. Smh?

  • Alicia Montgomery

    They both talk. No one should be mad because he spills the tea. He is her father at the end of the day and he is the reason that Beyonce is the big star that she is. The beyhive won't say anything to the mom but I feel like she favors Beyonce and she wants to be so famous herself.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I read this and doesn’t see what the uproar is about. She got them both in counseling, spent one on one time with Solange. I’m sure she had permission from the girls to discuss this. This happens in a lot of families, at least she took the steps to correct the situation.

  • NeverSurprised

    Hopefully every loving black mother who thinks it's ok to lay a hand on a child will take a moment to read Ebony's interview with Dr. Stacey Patton, PhD in Africa American History, who has written extensively on the historical underpinnings and traumatic impact of beating black children.

    No! It looked like to me she was use to Solange going off like that. EVERYONE has a crazy person in the their family that they just sit back and watch and let them get off their chest what's bothering them. She expected it and witnessed her going off on JAY-Z before,

  • Ang

    Nope. She would change the story to make it seem like Beyoncé didn't have any issues. She was just trying to convince people that Beyoncé's weave was her real hair.

  • Ang

    Some things don't need to be shared with the public. That doesn't mean they have to be shameful secrets but the entire world didn't need to know this. It's messed up that she said it as if they needed therapy because Solange had issues and Beyoncé was just annoyed with Solange's problems. Beyoncé is human, I'm sure she played a role also. Maybe Solange wasn't just jealous maybe she was annoyed that her parents obviously favored Beyoncé and Beyoncé probably had a superior attitude because of it. There are still clips online of Beyoncé having an attitude in the DC early days before she learned to cover that up in public. There's probably a lot more to their dynamics than just Solange being jealous. I think Tina is blinded by her favoritism of Beyoncé. Maybe Tina should've went to a parenting class while the girls were in therapy. I remember her saying on one of those old MTV documentaries that Beyoncé didn't have friends in school when she was little because the other kids were jealous of her because she was too pretty. I don't believe that. I think they put Beyoncé on a pedestal since birth and Beyoncé believed it because they raised her to believe she was special.

  • EMILY POST

    Amazing mom trying to help her daughter and was smart enough to recognize her daughters issues and try to help her children deal with it instead of pretending like its not there and no problem. - A lot of parents could take notes.

    Rather hear something real than a fake arse interview. They have hinted that Solange had a hard time with the attention Beyonce used to receive. In another interview when they said she use to destroy Beyonce stuff.

  • the guest

    I specified creoles because Tina Knowles is creole and the article is about her. But creoles are an identity, lineage, culture, and heritage distinct from light skinned blacks. Also, although mixed, not all creoles are light skinned but can still be colorist and favor their lighter children.

    People tend to be in denial that Beyonce's success is due to her talent but also due to her family's colorist preference for her which drove them to place her front and center of their lives. Point blank, they thought of Beyonce as prettier and more worthy investment. Solange obviously knew and felt this growing up.

  • the guest

    Because Beyonce is her favorite.

  • DeepThinker

    Make sense. All the attention went to Beyoncé, Parents on the road with DC. Solonge being ignored which is probably why she got pregnant so young. I hope they worked it out.

  • nekkkyj

    Solange probably was tired of being left with other family members while her parents was traveling with beyonce all the time

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It's possible Tina caused the friction by paying more attention to Beyonce.

    She's so use to ignoring Solange that mom didn't notice, or didn't give a Damn what she said!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Right, like Solange wouldn't notice it!!!

  • Renee Bee

    Ion talk to my sister. (Shrugs) (Not a Kanye shrug)

  • Rayne

    Oh ok.

  • Merkaba morris

    She should have took her and Matthew to therapy maybe they could have figured out why he was always cheating, this is a self serving ass fake woman jus like her narcissistic daughter...... Solange should the chunk them the dueces and on never f*** with them in life ..... Love and Light

  • Merkaba morris

    Sandra why the fuk you keep erasing my comments ?....y'all do sensor on this blog. Wait a minute why would she reveal something like this now ?.......Solange be very afraid they must be setting the stage to sacrificed u and say u always been crazy....I don't trust these people Solange should chunk them the dueces.....Love and Light

  • OriginalGuestest

    Thats normal sibling stuff tho. The headline is kind of misleading anyway. Its not like Solange asked for therapy. Tina thought it would be a good idea since Bey got more attention than her sister by others.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    What makes yall think Mathew is Kellys dad?

  • Guess Who

    I'm a little puzzled about the Maria Shriver sentence at the end. What does she have to do with any of this?

  • OriginalGuestest

    She definitely wasn't smirking. She cares about her image too much and she knew there were cameras.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I love Bey but I do feel bad for Solo. How can a parent have favorites. I thank God my mom loves us all equally even with my brother going through his stages of being out there. My mom loves us all.

  • I wanna suck your dick nìgga

    Fuck her and Beyoncé

  • Kimberly King

    I wonder if Beyonce and Solange have met their baby brother yet.

    Also, “Solange Day” makes me uncomfortable. You should always cater to your kids equally IMO. I was clearly the least liked out of 3 (and the oldest), but turned out to be the most successful and educated. Parents showing favoritism can really f*ck a kid up. Luckily, I turned out fine.

  • Tamara Taylor

    Well i could never b jealous of my sister however just share the money honey...sis can u put a mil in my bank account

  • laidbackgal4real

    Happy mother’s day to all .. and to add to this headline .. slightly a lil shade to Solange once again.Mama Tina needs help as well to notice her behaviors when she speaks about her youngest daughter poor baby feels like an outcast I bet

  • Renee Bee

    Happy Mother's Day!!

  • ALLMINE?

    This is normal

  • rachel

    Why, oh why would a mother do that to her child???? Why embarrass Solange publicly? The public did NOT have to know about her feelings of inadequacy!

    I swear - I do NOT put mothers on a pedestal. They can really mess up their children's self esteem.

  • JennyJazzhands

    Every other article says they both went to counseling except this one.

  • GIJoeJones

    I have joked many times in the past, that being Solange must be one of the worst things possible. Everyone in your closest circle and family is in awe of the unbelievable success of your mega famous sister (who you look a lot like). And nobody cares an ounce about your success. Let's face it, if Solange won a single Grammy award (something that would mean the world in just about any family on earth), her family would barely acknowledge it as significant since her sister has already won more than 12 (or something). There is almost nothing that Solange can do that would distinguish her in a family where Beyoncé is the queen.

  • Kanyade

    she's a journalist (as mentioned below) :)

  • Ajavee

    I like Tina and all but this should have been kept private.

  • Legacy

    Unforgivable......but I suspect she would know better than to say this without getting Solange's blessing first; so I'm going to assume she did get Solange's blessing. Her fam doesn't want ANY problems with her LOL!

  • Trace da Ace

    WOW....talk about major back stabbing behavior Tina.....really??? You put personal info out there about your daughters and for what??? To verify what we already knew??? We all know that Solange feels a way about Beyonce....and how stuck up Beyonce is....hell she probably rubbed that shit in her Solanges face instead of using her resources to help her sister.....see that is some bullshit...Tina dead wrong for that.....period. I feel like Solange has a beautiful, authentic voice and she is not all commercial like Beyonce....Solange did her album her way....and it was wonderful!! I can't wait until she comes out with another one!!! Beyonce needs to sit her ass down....she got irritated?? really?? FOH.....and Tina have several seats cause we know who your cash cow is......I'm so glad my family dont back stab like that....

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Come on now does ANYONE REALY CARE THAT MUCH? IS TINA FEALING IRRELEVANT! Why don't she expand on the fact that she was pregnant with Beyonce when she met Matthew! Spill that Tea!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    FOR REAL REAL! DON'T NOBODY CARE ABOUT THAT! Thought they wanted PRIVACY! TINA BYE!

  • Latisaj

    If she wasn't having problems before she sure is now. Somethings are just to be kept between the family.

  • Miss Thang

    well, damn. I never heard that.

  • Miss Thang

    If I were Solange, I would have gone in the total opposite direction. I would have become a cardiologist or something lol I mean what can you do? Actually, I was reading that Diana Ross's older sister is intellectually brilliant and very successful and the whole family was always rallying around her and that drove Diana to strive in her showbiz career. So, I guess it can go both ways.

  • Miss Thang

    We know they both went to counseling. But it's obvious who this makes look bad and who this makes look good. Who this makes look like a winner and who this makes look like a loser.We all know this. Tina has been a part of the problem their entire lives.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JennyJazzhands

    I don't think that's an automatic assumption. Tina has told stories about smacking beyonce for getting to big for her britches. And it obviously did some good because they're super close.

  • Vegas1989

    My favorite words to say......LOL

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Baaaaby....A LOT U HAVEN'T HEARD!

  • Dkwitty

    If she knew there were cameras she would have attempted to stop her sister because either way it reflects poorly on her. Both Beyonce and Solange have issues because Beyonce's behavior is not normal. She's so detached from everything but her music and we all know incredibly gifted people are usually also mentally unbalanced.

  • Soon2BWife

    Or the fact that she almost beat the brakes off her BIL in the elevator. ?

  • OriginalGuestest

    She knew there were cameras which is why she froze up. But either way she was going to be judged by doing too much or too little. You're right, Beyonce is not normal. She's a robot in my eyes who is so obsessed with her image and tries to come off as perfect . Even in her interviews she's not laid back, but overly poised.

  • parisjok

    both of those sisters are pretty much the same complexion. she made her mistake by having babies by such a very dark skin man

  • Kita Williams

    I commend her. if parents took their kids to counseling when they saw that one sibling was jealous of the other or the smarter or more talented kid was teasing the younger one then things would be better. how many people out here to this day mad at a sibling bc "you were always the favorite! they always did more for you" etc etc?

  • Kita Williams

    they start off as babies now and often times they aren't black kids. beyonce is 5yrs older than Solange. her career started and took off and as the little sister she wanted to be a part of that but couldn't. it's normal. with the success tho there needed to be professional intervention and it's great that Tina did that bc Solange and Beyoncé are closer than ever

  • Karen Brady

    Right... I hear you... she may have approved it because Solo brought all that attn on them when she beat up Jigga. Forgiven but not fogotten?

  • Munchosgirl

    Beyonce was in different talent shows, thanks to their dance teacher Ms Darlette...they both were in dance as well...

  • Tish

    Yeah. This is the reason why Ray J acts the way he does.

  • MsVAllDay

    Are you serious??? That is so wrong.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yep! That was wrong on so many levels
