Farrah Franklin, the forgotten fourth member of Destiny’s Child, found herself back in the spotlight on Sunday (July 20th) after being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. If Franklin’s name doesn't sound too familiar that’s probably because she only spent five months alongside Beyonce and co back in 2000, meaning we hardly had any time to get know her. With that in mind, here’s everything we could find out about Destiny’s Child’s elusive fourth member.

Farrah started her singing career as a member of short lived girl group Jane Doe. But in 1999 when Jane Doe were about ready to call it quits, another girl group, Destiny’s Child were also having some internal drama.

Kelly Rowland was lost at sea this week. Literally.
In one of the most bizarre stories coming out of the music world this year, former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland had to be saved by Massachusetts coast guards on Friday (July 19, 2013) when her boat ran into difficulty off the coast of Provincetown.
Rowland and friends had boarded a private craft to go whale watching, though their vessel became "disoriented in the five-to-six-foot waves and fog that had rolled in," an employee for the TowboatUS Provincetown confirmed to E! News.
Eventually, the US Coast Guard was "able to triangulate their position" after learning that the group needed help. More drama was yet to come when the groups' boat broke down while being escorted back to shore. The party had to be towed the remaining four miles, eventually arriving back on land around 10pm after 12 hours at sea.

The Destiny's Child star tried to do a spot of whale watching off Massachusetts but ended up getting lost and having to alert the coast guard.
Kelly Rowland was almost lost at sea after the private vessel she'd rented to go whale watching at Cape Cod became disorientated and had to be escorted back to shore. It's the dream of many - to seek out the majesty and serenity of whales on your own private boat with a few of your friends, but for Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland, her day of leisure didn't exactly go to plan.
Kelly Rowland Left Embarassed After She Boat She Rented Got Lost.
R&B star Rowland had hired a private vessel that was following a commercial whale watching boat to be led to a site to see Whales, off the coast of Massachusetts last weekend. However, for some reason, the captain of Rowland's boat lost sight of the vessel they were following and became hopelessly disorientated. The Coast Guard at Cape Cod were alerted and sent a commercial towboat to escort the red-faced star and her posse back to shore; presumably without having seen any whales.

Beyoncé posted pictures on her Tumblr of her 18 month old daughter Blue Ivy Carter sporting a tiny crown. These posts come only days after her father, Matthew Knowles, filed a law suit against British tabloid The Sun, allegedly, for defamation.
Beyoncé posted a picture of her baby Blue Ivy Carter on her Tumblr showing her 18 month old daughter wearing a tiny crown. Blue Ivy wears the purple crown at a jaunty angle, probably inspired by her parent's Beyonce and Jay Z's daring dress sense.

The 'Single Ladies' singer also posted a picture looking into her daughter's crib whilst Blue Ivy gives her an affectionate prod on the nose. Others shows a toddler sized cream dress and Beyoncé modelling tiny pink shoes - evidently for Blue Ivy!
Kelly Rowland broke down on-stage during a concert in Washington.
Kelly Rowland broke down in tears while performing her new track 'Dirty Laundry' - a song about her previous jealously of best pal Beyonce - during a show in Washington this week. The crowd cheered for the R&B singer during her tearful delivery of the emotional song, leaving Rowland to stop and wipe away the tears.
In the new track, the former Destiny's Child singer speaks about how her abusive former boyfriend turned her against Beyonce. "Bird in a café. You'd never know what I was dealing with. Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it. Bittersweet, she was up, I was down.No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now?" she sings. In a video from the Washington gig, Rowland, 32, is seen sitting on a stool and singing before choking up and having to bow her head. Buoyed by the crowd, she continues the song before telling fans, "Doing this song for me was so therapeutic. Honesty, like my mama always says, is always the best policy."
Watch Kelly Rowland crying:
'Dirty Laundry' features on Rowland's forthcoming studio album - another song 'You've Changed' was released on Tuesday (May 28, 2013) and features both Beyonce and Michelle Williams. The singer was recently confirmed as a new judge on Simon Cowell's X-Factor USA having previously worked on the British version of the singing contest. She joins Cowell, Demi Lovato and Latin pop star, Paulina Rubio on the new look panel.
