Destiny's Child Barbies To Arrive Weeks Before Split

DESTINY'S CHILD's split announcement has left bosses at toy manufacturer MATTEL far from thrilled - because they're set to unveil a new range of BARBIE dolls modelled on the trio.

SURVIVOR hitmakers BEYONCE KNOWLES, KELLY ROWLAND and MICHELLE WILLIAMS announced earlier this month (JUN05) they'll no longer be a trio when their current world tour comes to an end in September (05).

And bosses at Mattel were stunned by the news, as they were putting the finishing touches to Destiny's Child Barbies at the time of the revelation.

Despite the breakup, the $20 (GBP11) dolls will still go on sale, as scheduled, later this summer (05).

Destiny's Child is my favorite group. I have purchased all of their cds and love all of their songs. It is very sad to hear of the departure of the three ladies, but we have to remember they are humans just like us and they feel it is time for them to go their separate ways and follow up on the rest of their dreams. I just want the ladies to know I will see them at the Staples Center and thanks for all the lady empowerment songs and just for making hit records time and time again.
