Before the world knew Beyoncé as Queen Bey, DJ Simmons knew her as his babysitter.
“Beyonce used to babysit me … she was sweet, caring, loving, giving and nurturing,” the “Buckhead Shore” star, who is the son of Grammy-winning music producer and songwriter Daryl Simmons, told Page Six.
“I want to reach back out to her if I can. Hopefully this show makes me famous enough. But if not, I’ll keep shooting my shot.”
The reality star, whose new series debuts Thursday on MTV, continued to gush over what it was like hanging with the musical icon before she was famous.
“[My dad] signed Beyonce when she was 15 years old. She was singing with Destiny’s Child [but] they weren’t called Destiny’s Child at the time,” DJ told us of Daryl, who’s also worked with the likes of Whitney Houston, TLC, Boyz ll Men and Toni Braxton.
DJ recalled occasions when “Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland would sit at the house” with him to make sure he “was straight” when his parents would leave and go out to dinner.
“So I can say Beyoncé was my babysitter,” he added, proudly.
DJ currently stars in “Buckhead Shore,” which follows a group of friends as they spend the summer in Buckhead, Ga., a town less than eight miles away from Atlanta.
Unlike similar reality shows, the cast of the latest “Jersey Shore” spinoff are already established pals and will spend the summer months at a family lake house.
Fans can expect plenty of drama and romances to blossom as everyone on the show lives under one roof.
“Buckhead Shore” premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
