BEYONCE KNOWLES' stylist mother TINA sent the family attorneys out to find the callous gossip who suggested her daughter Solange was bleaching her baby.

Tina insisted the investigation be kept under wraps because she didn't want to fuel the speculation that upset new mum Solange, who gave birth to baby son DANIEL last year (04).

She recalls, "It was on the internet that my grandchild had a clubfoot and my daughter Solange put him in a bariatric chamber to bleach him. I was furious because my child was crying."

Tina reveals she challenged editors at the Houston Chronicle, when she heard the rumour stemmed from the newspaper's reporters - but they insisted it had nothing to do with them.

The family is still on the hunt for the culprits.
