Michelle Williams Reveals Destiny’s Child Depression

Former Destiny’s Child singer, Michelle Williams has opened up about her battle with depression.

She was speaking during an appearance on TV’s The Talk where she chipped into a conversation about how Demi Lovato is open about her own battles with mental health.

Michelle revealed:

“For years I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time suffering with depression. When I disclosed it to our manager at the time — bless his heart — he was like, ‘y’all just signed a multi-million dollar deal, you’re about to go on tour, what do you have to be depressed about?’”

Of course, depression doesn’t work like that as Williams explained she didn’t even realize the extent of her depression until she was in her 30s, eventually becoming “suicidal” in 2013!

“I was to that place where it got so dark and heavy because sometimes you feel like ‘I’m the provider, I take care of people, I’m not supposed to be feeling this way — what do I do?’ I wanted out.”

Very brave of Michelle to open up, as she hopes that her speaking up on the subject will help “normalize” the discussion around mental health…

Hats off!
