We all know that Destiny Child’s roster switched around a lot. While the circumstances surrounding the splits always seemed peaceful, we could clearly see that the group had their own inside drama. Former DC member, Farrah Franklin is now spilling the tea on why she really left the group.
In a recent interview with Vlad, she pointed the finger at Matthew Knowles for being the reason she left and accused Beyonce of covering the whole thing up.
When Franklin left the group in 2000, Beyonce said that the group decided to end their working relationship with her because she skipped several shows. However, Franklin told Vlad that the whole thing was a cover up to hide the fact that Matthew Knowles mistreated her. “It’s not a way you would want somebody treating your 18-year-old daughter, fresh out of the hospital from stomach flu and dehydration.”
Franklin ultimately denied being kicked out and said she left because she felt like she was being attacked. She said she didn’t miss any shows and worked despite doctor’s orders not to. We haven’t seen much of Franklin since her DC days so we’re not sure why she coming forward with this now, but she’s not the first person to question Matthew Knowles’ management skills.
