Destiny's Child will not reunite, says Beyoncé's dad

destinys-childBeyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams’ last album together was called Destiny Fulfilled for a reason: Destiny’s Child is never making another album or performing together again. If you don’t believe me, trust Mathew Knowles, proud father of pop diva Beyoncé and former manager of the most successful girl group ever. Refuting reports from the rumor mill, Knowles says the trio is not getting back together, now or ever.

“Contrary to rumors online of a Destiny’s Child reunion, there are no plans for the group to reunite for a performance or album,” Knowles states in a press release issued today. “The rumors are false. Destiny’s Child made an unprecedented impact in contemporary music, becoming one of the best-selling groups of all time. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have each moved on to successful solo careers. The members remain close, but will not reunite as a group.”

Since their 2004 breakup, each of the three members has released her own solo efforts. Beyoncé, easily the group’s most successful alum, has three multi-platinum sets under her belt, while Rowland and Williams both have dropped two critically acclaimed albums.

Are you sad Destiny’s Child isn’t reuniting? Did you ever hope they were? Let us know.

    Isn’t everyone on the outs with Papa Joe…oops, I meant Matthew Knowles? I much rather hear those words, “We are not reuniting” out of the leader’s mouth, Beyonce.

    • Allie

      same here vivi. why should we believe someone who’s not in the group? sometimes family members just say things for publicity/money

  • PDT

    If there’s a quick buck to be made, they’ll reunite. Not that Beyonce needs it.

    Really, though – at least when Beyonce went solo, Kelly and Michelle didn’t try to go on without her or replace her in Destiny’s Child. Beyonce WAS Destiny’s Child, and they wouldn’t have made a blip on the music scene’s radar without her.

      That’s a bunch of bull beyonce used that group for a solo career and her dad was the force behind it. she didn’t have that “mega star qaulity” she gained confidence and more popularity along the way while the other girls were pushed to the back. She did most of the lead vocals, she wore the cutest out-fits hair styles and it was done purposely so that she would stand out from the rest. she’s no more talented then the other ex destiny child members because if so she never would have used them to begin with. She would have started out as a solo artist like aaliyah,brandy and monica. Destiny’s child was not a group of equal opportunity it was a group of unfair treatment so i can most certainly agree with you when you say she was “destiny’s child” but not because of her talent but because of the way the group was set out to be “ALL ABOUT HER” which is why letoya and latavia wanted their own manager but matthew got mad as hell and kicked them out of the group why? because he had a hidden agenda. farrah would be the next fallen victim she left due to unfair treatment…why would kelly and michelle stay for as long as they did? don’t ask me but they also got their share of unfair treatment. Especially when they dropped their solo projects. Beyonce was performing at every award show promoting her album. where was kelly and michelle? don’t dare say it’s because beyonce has more talent. It is not sweetie-mr knowles has his daughter’s best interest at heart… What parent wouldn’t for their child? which is why he should have started his so-called most talented artist off as a solo artist. matthew did not properly manage kelly or michelle he made sure beyonce got top of the line deals from make-up commercials to movies. Beyonce is everywhere which makes it look like she’s the most driven. Don’t forget she has a great marketing team behind her it’s not all her, she became a bigger star just by having her name paired up with jay z. kelly and michelle didn’t have all that a great marketing team, promotions, and a famous rapper to back them not to mention a “opportunistic” no good ass dad who sabotaged the careers of others just so his daughter could get to the top. Yes beyonce is talented, yes she’s a good singer, yes she’s gained world wide fame, yes she’s very successful, but it all came at the hands of stepping on others and for that there will be a ultimate price to pay.

        I agree fully. I’m glad others have noticed this. Couldn’t gave put it any better. Beyonce might as well been a solo act from the start since she had the best stuff, song lead in every song, and had the camera on her the most. I think the group was foolish as were the other kids parents to let one kid children manage that group especially seeing how he made them back-ups. Shame

      • Chris ped

        I totally agree with you….I thought i was the only one who felt this way…Thanks for posting!!!!

  • Miss Talk

    I’m sad, I miss the girls together. Glad to hear they remain close.
    On anther note, Papa Knowles, how is the baby?

  • Ed

    Did anyone really expect them to reunite? I assumed Destinys Child was dead and buried.

  • Henry

    RIP

  • Stacy

      • Maureen

        *too ;)

    • Allie

      at least my backstreet boys are back!!

    Beyonce was NOT the leader, all three of the girls had an equally important role in the group and all have gone on to successful careers. Beyonce is onevof the best of her genre, Kelly Rowland is now a dance queen and is releasing her third solo album in September, and Michelle had two number one gospel albums and is one of the most recvognizable names on Broadway. WHo cares about Matthew, he ruined his own marriage and sabotaged Kelly and Michelle’s careers for a long time. The smartest move in the world was to fire that bastard. Anything is possible, and we all know they do something every year regardless of Matthew’s chatter. He has nothing to do with it, and if they decide to reunite, he has no say. Hope they do once Kelly and Michelle have fully established themselves, but if they don’t it’s cause of Matthew.

    • Chris ped

      Amen to that!!!!!

  • Sarah

    If for some reason Beyonce ever loses popularity, they’ll reunite.

  • bgl

    I would have preferred to hear this from one of the group. If Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle can sing all of those songs then they can speak for themselves.

  • stan

    i’m sorry, was matthew a member of destiny’s child? i don’t think so. he’s not even managing kelly and michelle anymore.

  • LaDarra

    I co-sign with Bob 1,000 %! You’re a fool if you think Kelly & Michelle didn’t contribute to this group. Only an idiot would imply that. lol They are all amazing and I’m still hoping one day I can see them all together. Till then I’ll support solo careers.

  • loso

    I love Kelly Rowland’s new single Commander it is great song with David Guetta. Kelly can sing so well.

  • EJ

    I listen to old DC all the time at work. Especially the ‘survivor’ and ‘destiny fulfilled’ era where EACH girl sang lead on EVERY song.In fact Kelly’s voice is highlighted on each No.1 hit DC ever had–except on ‘Say my name.’

  • Me

    Even if they reunited for a concert, I wouldn’t care because Letoya and Latavia deserve to be there as well. I’m a fan of DC3 but DC4 is where it all started!

  • aj

    commander on Itunes kelly rowland’s new single Solo driven confidence is her game!!
