Kelly Rowland is airing out some more dirty laundry.
The former Destiny’s Child singer — though we remain hopeful for a reunion one of these days! –sat down with “omg Insider’s” Kevin Frazier and talked about the emotional abuse she suffered when she was younger. She still won’t identify the guy, but says that the experience changed her as a person.
“A piece of me would just go away every time he would say something,” she said. “I’ll never forget those things. I’ll forgive him … he’s a different person now but it was things to tear me down as a person, as a woman. I was just so young and allowed him to do those things to me.”
She sings about the experience in her latest track, “Dirty Laundry,” where she also paints a picture of jealousy at watching her dear friend and former bandmate Beyonce rise to greater fame and success.
Lyrics in the song go: “I was battered / He hitting the window like it was me, until it shattered / He pulled me out, he said, ‘Don’t nobody love you but me / Not your mama, not your daddy and especially not Bey.’”
Of her best friend Beyonce, she tells Kevin: “I love my sister. [Beyoncé] is so incredibly supportive. [She is] one of the closest people to me.”She also notes that Bey heard the track — and approved it — before Kelly released it.
