Beyonce and Tina Knowles

Tina Knowles recently opened up about how staying true to her strong values cost Destiny’s Child their first ever record deal.

During the 1990s the 60-year-old Entrepreneur helped her oldest daughter Beyonce launch the Grammy award-winning group Destiny’s Child, however, she admitted to once costing the group its first record deal. Later, God would provide them with an even “bigger” opportunity and Tina credits much of her own success to keeping her faith first.

“The first deal that they [Destiny’s Child] had, I was the first person to open my big mouth to the people that signed them … Because they were actually exposing the girls to things that I just didn’t feel were appropriate for them to be so young,” Tina said in a keynote address at the Texas Women’s Empowerment Foundation’s eighth annual Women & Money luncheon in Houston last week.

“Well he ended up telling me to get out of his office, take the kids home and don’t bring them back,” she shared. “So I’m devastated because I have to go and tell these kids I messed up their deal. So I end up doing that and God just showed up because in three months, they got a way bigger, better deal.”
