Rowland Dropped By Record Label

Former DESTINY'S CHILD star KELLY ROWLAND has reportedly been dropped by her record label, just two months after firing her manager, former bandmate BEYONCE KNOWLES' dad.
Despite the fact her first two solo albums sold more than four million copies, British tabloid News of The World reports the Dilemma singer has been dumped by bosses at Columbia, because they fear she is "no longer commercially viable".
Rowland shot to fame in Destiny's Child in 1997 and released her first solo album, Simply Deep, in 2002. The album sold over three million copies worldwide.
The 28 year old started 2009 by splitting from longtime manager Mathew Knowles, who said, "After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship.
"My company, Music World, will continue to manage Destiny's Child as a group. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost, and, as a dad, I only have love for Kelly."
Rowland was equally as complimentary in her post-split statement, saying: "Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance - both as a member of Destiny's Child and with my solo projects.
"Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family."
Meanwhile, Rowland is currently working on a new reality TV project, called The Fashion Show, which she'll co-host.
