Michelle Williams Opens Up About Broken Engagement

Michelle Williams Opens Up About Broken Engagement In the latest issue of Sister 2 Sister, Michelle Williams reveals for the first time the heartache of her broken engagement in 2004. Check out the report via Contact Music below:

Former DESTINY’S CHILD star MICHELLE WILLIAMS is keen to make sure her next romance is for real – after a broken engagement left her upset about the time and money she’d spent on it.

The singer picked up last-minute plane flights so she could be with her unnamed fiance during breaks in her Destiny’s Child schedule and, at one point, racked up a $10,000 (GBP5,000) cell phone bill just chatting to her man while she was on tour.

Williams also spent a lot of time planning a dream wedding and moving house only for her romance dreams to be left in tatters when her fiance began to get cold feet.

Eventually, the singer called off the engagement and she and her one-time fiance mutually agreed to split, leaving her to pick up the pieces of a broken dream and counting the emotional and financial cost of her failed romance.

She says, “Relationships get very expensive… You try to fly on the red-eye (overnight plane) home, you try to spend time (with him).

“When I was overseas, I racked up a $10,000 cell phone bill.”But Williams insists the experience won’t put her off getting married: “I’m not weary of it at all. I do believe there is a particular gentleman out there for me who will come when I least expect it.”

It really goes to show that one can never be too sure of what’s happening behind all the glitz and glamor this industry propagates. I mean, if my time-line serves me correct, Michelle’s (broken) engagement would have fallen within Destiny’s Child’s last stint and most of us were nonethewiser. Interesting…

    Michelle did talk about this during the Destiny Fulfilled era, this is just the first time people are paying attention to Michelle personal life with a great single and all!

    That’s because everyone assumed that all the sadness was coming from Kelly’s broken engagement that nobody gave Michelle the time of day. Shame On It All

    The song ‘Girl’ was written about Michelle, not Kelly! I thought we all knew that!

    “. He probably lost interest because she seems like she has no personality.”

    Wow all this makes me re-think the “Destiny Fulfilled” album and the stories in it. We all thought it was just Kelly.

    To the person who said Michelle has no personality..you’re an ass!! She has personality for miles…

    I WILL marry her..Michelle is sooo s*** and sophisticated
    Her persoality has outshone so many people in the music industry. She has always been overlooked, but with this album she will be the most ‘UnExpected’ breakout artist this year…

    Why is everybody saying “Girl” was written about just Kelly? Kelly was still engaged when they recorded Destiny Fulfilled. Kelly and Roy didn’t break up until the end of 04 or early 05 and DF was recorded summer 04. IMO i think the song was about a mixture of all of their lives.
