The R&B superstar, whose first name is actually inspired by her mother's maiden name, joined her sister Solange Knowles and mum Tina Knowles Lawson at the funeral of her brother, Lumis 'Skip' Beyince, in the city of Webster on Saturday (19Mar16).

The Halo hitmaker's husband, rapper Jay Z, and daughter Blue Ivy were also in attendance, as was Solange's spouse, music video director Alan Ferguson, and her son Julez.

Beyonce's cousin, Kristin Douglas, shared a photo of herself and her famous relative on Instagram after the ceremony, and captioned it, "Celebrating the life of Uncle Skip! #ripuncleskip".

However, it was mother-of-two Kristin's bootylicious behind which prompted the snap, which also featured her sister Kelsi Leggett, to go viral, racking up over 13,400 likes online.

Fans were quick to note that curves appear to run in the singer's family, complimenting Kristin, who wore a figure-hugging royal blue dress, on her own beauty on social media.

The nurse's Instagram following has since swelled to over 50,000 as a result of the snap's popularity, reports the New York Daily News.

One fan commented: "Beyonces (sic) cousin is packing heat".

"I love Beyonce but her cousin stole the show in this pic," exclaimed another male follower. "do you even see B in this pic? Lord have mercy."

A third added, "She had under 3k followers the other day thou. Just prove how much us men loves booties really (sic)."
