Michelle Williams Opens Up About Depression During Destiny’s Child Days

Michelle Williams opened up about her struggle with depression and being suicidal at the height of her success with Destiny’s child during her time guest co-hosting “The Talk” Wednesday, October 18th.

You can watch the clip below:

We’ve heard Michelle speak about her struggles before, so what stood out most to us was the response from her manager at the time, Beyoncé‘s father, Mathew Knowles, who was the group’s manager.

“When I disclosed it to our manager at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘Y’all just signed a multi-million dollar deal and you’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?’ So I was like, ‘Oh, maybe I’m just tired.’”

The good news is, it does get greater later, and while Williams applauded Demi Lovato for being open about her own struggle with depression, she says she’s feeling much better.

“It’s off. It’s released. I’ve released it. Depression doesn’t mean lazy. Self-harm doesn’t mean you want attention. It’s not any of that.”

Michelle has already gotten some great responses as a result of her on camera admission

This is wonderful… Michelle out here blessing everybody.

Speaking of blessings, she’s also still going strong with her spiritually sound boo thang Chad Johnson.
