Beyoncé Knowles allegedly felt shocked by Kelly Rowland's public "meltdown".
Beyoncé Knowles was reportedly surprised by Kelly Rowland’s “meltdown”.
Kelly recently became emotional while she performed her new song Dirty Laundry in Washington DC.
The ballad references her jealousy of her former Destiny’s Child bandmate and Kelly has previously said Beyoncé knew about the meaning of the words and had been supportive.
However, insiders have since come forward to say Kelly’s public display was a shock for Beyoncé.
“This meltdown came out of the blue,” an insider told UK magazine Look. “She probably thought all their bad times were behind them and with Kelly’s single and her contract to judge the X Factor US, thought she was in a good place. But when she broke down, Bey must’ve realised she is still hurting and their fall-out is still very raw.”
Beyoncé reportedly called Kelly as soon as she found out she had cried on stage while singing the heartfelt lyrics. The 31-year-old is said to have given Kelly a pep talk and promised they would spend more time together in the future.
“She immediately knew she had to reach out to Kelly,” the friend explained. "It was a positive conversation and I’m sure both girls feel much better about everything. "
Kelly has a busy time ahead after being confirmed as a new addition to the X Factor US panel.
She is teaming up with Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Latin pop star Paulina Rubio for the new season of the talent show. Kelly was previously a judge on the UK version of the series so is familiar with the format.
