Williams, now 37, earned scores of Billboard hits and Grammy awards with her bandmates Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland in the early noughties. However, amid the multi-platinum records and world tours, she was struggling with depression.

She appeared on American chat show ‘The Talk’ on Wednesday (October 18th) to discuss her battle, which began in her teens but continued into her early thirties. At the time, she felt it was just "growing pains" but it took years for her to figure out what the truth was.

Destiny's Child

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.

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.

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:
