Kelly Rowland Outed As 'Sensitive One' By Former Destiny's Child Member

Kelly Rowland has undoubtedly blossomed into a star. The now UK X Factor judge and Motivation singer has finally came into her own. Despite incessant comparisons to Beyonce, Kelly’s light shines on it’s own.

Now former Destiny’s Child band member LaTavia Roberson reveals that Kelly Rowland suffered emotionally from the Matthew Knowles’ brand of discipline.

“Matthew did not mince his words and it can be tough to take that kind of criticism when you are a little girl. We would try not to let it break us.

“But Kelly was the sensitive one, and sometimes she would go to her room and cry.”

LaTavia continued to the UK Mirror.

“LeToya was the jokester, I was the sassy one, Beyonce was the mamma and Kelly the sensitive one. Watching movies, she’d be the first to cry.”

Today LaTavia finds inspiration in Kelly Rowland who she once again calls a friend.

“It’s  ­  ­amazing how well Kelly has done since then. She has really  ­blossomed and for me it has been fantastic to watch her become this strong,  ­independent woman.

“She is an inspiration to anyone, and I am honored to call her my friend.”

“I spoke to Kelly last year and I asked her, ‘Do you understand why we did what we did?’ She said, ‘Oh gosh, yes’. And that was enough for me.

“We’ll always be sisters. Nothing can take that away from us.”

Both Beyonce and Kelly Rowland have since sought other management from Matthew. Despite his hard discipline, Matthew deserves credit for preparing all four ladies from Destiny’s Child for success.
