Destiny's Child to Break Up

Published: 2005-06-14
Destiny's Child proved the naysayers right by confirming this week that the band will indeed break up after its world tour ends in the fall. "We have been working together as Destiny's Child since we were 9, and touring together since we were 14," the band said in a recent statement to MTV. "After a lot of discussion and some deep soul-searching, we realized that our current tour has given us the opportunity to leave Destiny's Child on a high note, united in our friendship and filled with an overwhelming gratitude for our music, our fans, and each other."

Many people have expected this day to come, especially after the solo success Beyonce Knowles had with her 2003 album, Dangerously in Love, which sold millions of copies and garnered five Grammys.

Destiny's Child formed in 1997 in Houston with an original line-up consisting of Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson. Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin came in soon after to replace Roberson and Luckett, but Franklin was dropped later to trim the group down to a trio.

I am sorry to admit that I was kinda sad, but last month I read in a jet magazine june issue. That Beyonce was getting most of the money, Kelly had a little of the same as Beyonce, and Michelle got a low paycheck. I thought to myself and that was pretty sad for them to do that to Michelle here they go saying how they are sisters well it really showed what they are like with money.
