In a recent interview, Ms. Tina, the mother of Solange and Beyonce admitted that she took her girls to therapy at a young age to help deal with Beyonce’s fame.
The 64 year-old mother of two also says that Solange and Beyonce are so close and protective over each other as a result of the therapy sessions from early on.
Here is what Ms. Tina had to say…
On Wednesdays, I would take off work, and that was Solange’s day…it was tough because she was only five years old, and Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city, and so I took them to counseling very early so that the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange.
She couldn’t stand her for a minute because when they were little, she was five, she was all in (Beyonce’s) stuff, she was trying to hang around her and her friends, and Beyoncé was really irritated, but it made her more sensitive to who her sister was and what she had to deal with because of her.
My family was like you’re going to make them crazy because they’re too young for you to take them, but I wanted Beyoncé to be sensitive to the fact that Solange had to deal with being a little bit in her shadow,” Knowles Lawson said. “It made her way more sensitive and protected and they’re still fiercely protective of each other.
