Kelly Rowland Nixes Destiny’s Child Reunion Rumors
Last month, Beyonce’s dad and former manager, Mathew Knowles, said a new Destiny’s Child record was in the works, in addition to his hopefully arranging a reunion tour of the girl group. “It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it,” Knowles told press, “And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible.”
And therein lies the problem: The girls don’t want to do it, at least according to Rowland. The stunning ‘Ice’ songstress told The Daily Express, “We don’t want to scratch each other’s eyes out. We love each other too much.”
Aside from not wanting to have cat fights, the girls are busy. In addition to a booming solo career, Rowland is a judge on ‘X Factor U.K.’ and the new Aussie show ‘Everybody Dance Now,’ while Queen Bey is working on her fifth solo record as well as a documentary and being a mom to beautiful baby girl Blue Ivy. Even if the girls wanted to reunite, matching their schedules would prove pretty difficult — but here’s hoping they may change their minds! In the meantime, Knowles confirmed that two Destiny’s Child catalog records will be released in November — just in time to serve as a nostalgic stocking stuffer.
