Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles scolds photographers for taking pictures of Blue Ivy
Beyonce’ mom doesn’t mess around when it comes to the safety of her grandchildren! Tina Knowles put a paparazzi photographer in his place when the man dared to intrude on Tina and her family having lunch on Tuesday. Tina, Beyonce and Beyonce’s three-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, were dining in Los Angeles, when Tina noticed that the photographer was attempting to film Blue Ivy. She left the table, approached the man and told him exactly what she thought of his actions.
“You know that’s not cool. It’s illegal You can’t film a baby!” Tina told the photographer, who, according to The Hollywood Fix, had just taken a photo of the trio walking into the restaurant.
When the man protested that he was just “taking pictures,” Tina quipped, “Well, can you not take a picture of a child?”

The photographer argued that because Tina’s family was famous, he had a reason to photograph them.
“That’s a baby!” Tina responded. “Have some class about you. Have a little class and a little consideration.”
Tina’s scolding left the photographer mumbling like a schoolboy in trouble. He muttered, “Okay” as Tina went back into the restaurant to rejoin her family.
Tina isn’t the only Knowles family member who has had a problem with the Los Angeles paparazzi. In January, Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, was visibly angry at photographers who were taking pictures of Blue Ivy and Solange’s son, Daniel while they played with Tina at Griffith Park in Los Angeles. After sitting in front of the children to block the pap’s shot, Solange took to her Twitter to blast the paparazzi.
“Man we should’ve gone to da movies,” she wrote. “I wanted those [photographers] to BURN!”
Solange later wrote that the heavy paparazzi presence in Los Angeles is one of the reasons that she and her family choose to live in New Orleans.
