Beyoncé is still managed by her father, as is ex-Child Michelle Williams. Kelly Rowland left the Knowles camp in early 2009.
“The rumors are false,” Mathew Knowles continued, in the statement. “Destiny’s Child made an unprecedented impact in contemporary music, becoming one of the best-selling groups of all time. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have each moved on to successful solo careers. The members remain close, but will not reunite as a group.”
As hard as it is to believe, the last [lastfm]Destiny’s Child[/lastfm] studio album came out in late 2004, almost six years ago!
