Kelly Rowland No Longer Managed By Husband, Talks Almost Going Broke Trying To “Keep Up” Appearances [Video]

Published: Friday 3rd Jul 2020 by Rashad

Talk a Good Game has taken on a double-meaning once or twice in the life of R&B superstar Kelly Rowland, she revealed in a tell-all recent interview her pastor Erwin McManus.

Answering a series of deeply personal and professional questions during the nearly hourlong chat, the GRAMMY winner spoke candidly about the mutual decision she and husband, Tim Witherspoon, came to cut professional ties and focus solely on their marriage.

As if that wasn’t enough, she also discussed at length money woes she suffered in the past trying to “keep up” a certain look.  Taking to the platform, Rowland said:

“No one would believe this and actually this would be my first time talking about it, but I almost lost everything because I was so busy trying to keep up… Whether it was the look, whether it was the wardrobe, whether it was the car, whether it was the place… all of that silliness!”

That’s not all.  Look inside for more:

No stranger to airing dirty laundry, kudos to Kelly for keeping it real in a time where so few do.

    Don’t marry your manager. And don’t sign to roc nation. And don’t take years off between albums.

    You know I love you Kelly, and I’m saying this to all people that are super wealthy : if you end up broke, it’s because of stupid decisions.

    When you have that much money, with the interests only, it’s already a huge budget for all the things listed.

    When you crave material things like that, it’s never enough. And what for in the end… appearance ? And risking going bankrupt for that ?

    Then just imagine the life of a regular John Doe trying to pay his bills and save up some coins to try to afford things like some basic shopping, activities or a trip…

    I’m actually very surprised to hear this coming from her because I thought she was smarter than this with her money.
    But kudos to her for being so real.

    I thought she sang “Kelly got flex,
    Kelly got wheels, Kelly got a stash
    Kelly got a big house on a hill …”

    Kelendria rich, huh? 🤔

      Everybody is rapping about Ferrari’s while walking to the bus top these days.

      • PinotNoir July 4, 2020

        Errybody pulling a Bow Wow with an OnlyFans account nowadays, indeed. 😊

    • Tori July 3, 2020

      Kellys been open about that situation before, that was in the early 2000’s during DC and the transition to being solo. 🤦🏾‍♂️

      • PinotNoir July 4, 2020

        I didn’t know that. Hmm … remember watching a tour of her lavish house and cars on MTV Cribs and thinking “Kelly’s doing better than poor Michelle!” To find out now that she was fronting is understandable for a then-20something, but oh so wrong. But then, I recall some rappers renting or borrowing mansions from friends just for pne day to save face. 😂

    • Martaevia La’Wayne July 4, 2020

      It’s called lyrics. What you got though? Lol

  4. Holliewuudd July 3, 2020

    Well if she would put out some musiiiiiiic then she wouldn’t be almost broke. But j get it too trying to keep up appearances is an age-old tricky predicament. Glad she finally realized it.

    • Tori July 3, 2020

      kelly has been putting out music for years and yall do not buy it yet continuessly ask for it? Kelly would still be broke depending on album sales. Thats exactly why shes moved on to ther things besides music now. Y’all think it really take 6 years to record an album? NO, whats the point of putting it out if yall not buying?

      • Lyka July 3, 2020

        She did not put the right Music out. Look im a Kelly Fan too but you can not start attacking people. Her team is the biggest Problem in all this mess. I think her husband didnt had the experince to be her Manager he didnt spent the money well enough. She need to higher a great manager like Scooter Braun he is a beast he can help her to get the attention she need. If her team didnt promote her Music well enough you cant blame the people.

      • Krissi July 4, 2020

        She puts out really good music she has this track with ludacris from over five years ago this a banger.

        Roc nation has a habit of buying artists to curb the competition for the major act. They delay on albums and there is always an issue with artist music releases.

        The reason being is potentially they don’t want another artists competing. It’s great for the main customer however it’s not so great for consumer. as we lose the choice of quality music. Plus it makes for poor content creation..

  5. Travis July 4, 2020

    It’s sad how she hardly ever acknowledge LeToya & LaTavia as if they were never in the group with them. LaTavia played a role in her being in Destiny’s Child. Smh

  6. Kiss July 4, 2020

    She stopped talking to Brandy in the early 2000s because she told her that Mathew and Bey were cheating her out of money and opportunities. Now look.

    • PinotNoir July 4, 2020

      Wow. 🍵

  7. ugo July 4, 2020

    Kelly is a beautiful soul,and I only wish her well,plus anyone who thinks she shouldn’t be hanging out with “lala’, is just wrong,because having great friends helps you stay sane and grounded in such a volatile industry, I don’t know about kimK( not that I don’t think she’s a good person,but I don’t think she cares to be with folks that are not in the upper echelons). Kelly has great
    Values,my only problem is that she seems content being in Beyonce’s shadow.

    • PinotNoir July 4, 2020

      Right. She was RAISED under Bey’s shade and brainwashed into s****-like loyalty to build & back her up into solo superstardom. Kelly’s tone is the best of the group. “Stole” was 20 years ahead of its time (no surprise there; like Brandy, Kelly’s an Aquarius). And Kelly’s albums are more enjoyable. Too bad out colorist, Matthew Know-less, invested little in her (did he think her darker skin did her in?) than he did in his Creole daughter.

  8. Ashley Scott July 4, 2020

    I appreciate how honest Kelly was about this situation because I know that was very hard to do.

  9. Exlurker July 5, 2020

    It’s a shame she didn’t use her millions to invest in something useful years ago. She could have done cosmetics focused on people with her skin tone made so much money…. i guess Rihanna got there first. She could ho into skin care as her skin is smooth. Ah well.

  10. Pamela Miller July 5, 2020

    I absolutely enjoyed this interview. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Miss Wright July 6, 2020

    Such a great interview. Interviewer asked thoughtful questions and attentively listened to Kelly’s responses. Kelly’s answers were thorough and sincere.
