Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles DEFENDS Kelly Rowland in wake of her verbal altercation with security guard


Tina Knowles has spoken out to the defense of Kelly Rowland in regards to the recent red carpet spat at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

While attending the premiere of the French film Marcello Mio on Tuesday, May 21, the singer and actress got into a verbal dispute with a security guard while walking up the red carpet towards the theater. 

Tina Knowles Reacts

Just hours after Kelly shared her side of the story on the incident, Knowles posted a message in support of Rowland, whom she has long considered to be like a daughter to her since she moved in with the Knowles family at age 11 during the formation of Destiny’s Child.

‘And just like that, she @kellyrowland graces another carpet with her amazing glorious beauty, class and grace!!!! Sipping Champagne and living her best life,’ Knowles, 70, captioned a video showing Rowland back at another event at Cannes on Wednesday.

‘This just goes to show that one silly monkey, don’t stop no-show!!! on to bigger and and better things,’ Rowland added, in a reference to the red carpet drama two days earlier.

Lip Reader Made Some Revelations

A lip reader, Jeremy Freeman hired by Page Six to transcribe a video of the incident that seemingly began when the female security guard stepped on the train of Rowland’s gown, to which she replied, ‘Don’t worry.’

The French woman appeared to frantically respond to the Dilemma star, who even turned back to continue to make her point as she made her way up the rest of the steps.

‘Don’t Talk to me Like That’

It’s not exactly clear what the worker said in response, but Rowland appeared to follow up and say, ‘Don’t talk to me like that. Don’t talk to me like that. You’re not my mother. I told you not to talk to me like that.’  

A male security guard then came down to ask what was being said as the lady was using her hands to move Rowland along off the steps of the red carpet.

‘You still don’t talk to me like that!’ she reiterated on last time before continuing her walk into the theater.

The Atlanta, Georgia native, 43, insisted she was just standing her ground.

‘The woman knows what happened. I know what happened,’ she said. ‘And, I have a boundary. And I stand by those boundaries and that is it.’
