Beyonce once confronted a school bully who was targeting her younger sister.

The 'Singles Ladies' hitmaker - who first found fame with R&B group Destiny's Child - defended sibling Solange Knowles, 27, after her sibling asked her to go into school to speak to a boy who had been making her life tough.

Pop star Solange told US radio station Hot 97 host Angie Martinez: "When I was in seventh or eighth grade I used the [fame] card. Because there was this one kid who was so obnoxious, he was constantly kinda bullying.

"I wrote petitions to get this kid out of school. I really couldn't stand this kid. His name was Brandon, I remember that.

"One day, and 'No, No, No' had just come out the remix with Wyclef, and I did say, 'My sister's gonna come here and you're gonna be really surprised who she is.'

"Because I'd been telling my sister and Kelly [Roland], 'Y'all gotta come check this kid.' "

When Beyonce, 32, and Kelly, also 32, did go into school to sort out the problem, Solange says the look of the kid's face was priceless.

Solange recalled: "They pulled up and I will never forget the face that Brandon made. It wasn't just because they were coming to beat him up, it was Destiny's Child coming to beat him up! I loved it."
