I broke the news of Kelly Rowland’s plans to leave Papa Knowles wayyy back in the first week of December 2008 on BET’s “The Black Carpet” tv show.
After which, it was denied vehemently and parties involved asked for a retraction. I lovvvve to say ” I told you so”. Here is the official statement:
“After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship. My company, Music World, will continue to manage Destiny’s Child as a group. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost, and as a dad I only have love for Kelly.”
And Rowland says:
“Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance — both as a member of Destiny’s Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family.”
So to all my haters and naysayers, in the words of the illustrious Tina Fey “Suck Itttttttttttt”. Word on the street is that Simon Cowell is trying to manage her. Additionally, there have been rumors that Kelly Rowland Miami home is up for sale for $500,000 because she wan’t to get out of the US as fast as possible. I hear the UK has really taken to her and she plans on making that her permanent home.
