Kelly Rowland attends press conference

Say it isn’t so. Your girl Kelly may be bound for a straight jacket and padded room for a minute:

Rumors are swirling that after being dropped from Columbia Records, Kelly Rowland has been on suicide watch. Some say that Mathew Knowles possibly had something to with her removal from the label and Kelly is distraught over her career. We think Kelly is a tad bit stronger than that.

Well, for what it’s worth, here’s Kelly trying to save face regarding her being ousted from Columbia:

Grammy Award-winning starlet Kelly Rowland says rumors that her split with Columbia Records, revealed Monday, having to do with not being “commercially viable” are false !

In a statement obtained early Tuesday, Rowland and Columbia reveal that the former “Like This” singer will not only continue on at Columbia as part of Destiny’s Child but the split was truly amicable and her decision.

“Because Columbia Records has been my home base as an artist for more than a decade, the decision to move out on my own required a lot of soul-searching,” says Kelly Rowland.

“As a solo artist, I felt the need to explore new directions, new challenges, and new freedoms outside my comfort zone and my friends and family at Columbia have been incredibly understanding about my evolution. I want to thank everyone at Columbia for the love and support they’ve shown and I will never forget how many good times we’ve had over the years.”

While at Columbia, Rowland helped to earn Destiny’s Child (including Beyonce and Michelle Williams) the distinction of becoming the #1 female pop group of all time, a fact that Columbia/Epic Label Music Group CEO Rob Stringer can’t ignore.

“Kelly Rowland is one of our finest contemporary artists and a musical force to be reckoned with,” says Stringer.

“It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Kelly and we will continue our working relationship with her under the Destiny’s Child moniker. The decision for Kelly to seek other opportunities for her solo career was agreed upon mutually, and any reports to the contrary are false.”

As they say… there you have it !

In addition to selling more than 50 million records worldwide with Destiny’s Child, Kelly Rowland sold more than 4 million copies globally of her two solo albums: 2002’s “Simply Deep” and 2007’s “Ms. Kelly,” which included the international #1 chart-topping single, “Work.”

As previously reported on Singersroom, Rowland has inked a new deal with BRAVO for the forthcoming series “The Fashion Show” slated to premiere on the network later this year.

Po’ thang.

  • NEC2K

    Dang, my computer hella slow, lol. I agree with Z, she should write a tell all book because she isn’t going to save any records. She has a nice voice though, which is sad why she was dropped. She’s one of the few folks in the industry who actually can sing, but I’m sure others (Milian, Ashanti, etc.,) will continue to produce songs. Wack or not.

    Kelli’s going to be alright, she just needs one to promote her like Clive D and forget about that pappa Knowledge cause he don’t even look out for his other daughter So-lo. But his day is coming and Bey will break away cause Jay’s going to end up managing her.
