That Grape Juice Exclusive: Kelly Rowland Update
Following the news of Kelly Rowland’s departure from Columbia Records earlier this week, rumours have been surfacing about the ‘Like This’ singer – one of the most ludicrous being that she is supposedly on suicide watch. Kelly’s team have reached out to That Grape Juice to clear things up, peep the statement they issued exclusively to That Grape Juice within the last hour:

The reality is that Kelly has spent the last week in Miami premiering ‘Love Takes Over’ with superstar French producer David Guetta, and hanging out with Guetta, Jade Jagger, and

“As a solo artist, I felt the need to explore new directions, new challenges, and new freedoms outside my comfort zone,” Rowland said in a statement.

Columbia, for its part, said Rowland’s departure was a mutual decision, “and any reports to the contrary are false.”

Following Rowland’s split from Matthew Knowles’ Music World, and her appointment of Above and Beyond to handle her branding, Kelly is at the centre of three huge endorsement deals set to net her over £1 million this year. They include an exclusive restaurant launch and deal with a major high street fashion brand. Kelly was also recently asked to perform at Glastonbury but has declined as she’s tied up with filming ‘The Fashion show.’

Ms. Kelly certainly looks to be making all the right power moves to ensure she is able to endure in this indsustry – and get the recognition she deserves. More power to her! She told y’all she was gonna “bump like this” LOL.

In other Kelly news, Bravo have sent along Kelly’s video profile for ‘The Fashion Show’, on which she will serve as a co-host and judge. The show premieres on Bravo May 7th:
