Before the world knew BeyoncÃ© as Queen Bey, DJ Simmons knew her as his babysitter.
âBeyonce used to babysit me â¦ she was sweet, caring, loving, giving and nurturing,â the âBuckhead Shoreâ 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.
â[My dad] signed Beyonce when she was 15 years old. She was singing with Destinyâs Child [but] they werenât called Destinyâs Child at the time,â DJ told us of Daryl, whoâs also worked with the likes of Whitney Houston, TLC, Boyz ll Men and Toni Braxton.
DJ recalled occasions when âBeyoncÃ© and Kelly Rowland would sit at the houseâ with him to make sure he âwas straightâ when his parents would leave and go out to dinner.
âSo I can say BeyoncÃ© was my babysitter,â he added, proudly.
DJ currently stars in âBuckhead Shore,â 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 âJersey Shoreâ 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.
âBuckhead Shoreâ premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
