MICHELLE WILLIAMS, MEMBER OF FORMER GIRL GROUP DESTINY'S CHILD, OPENS UP ON HER BATTLE WITH DEPRESSION

Michelle Williams, a member of former girl group Destiny’s Child, in a recent interview with CBS’ ‘The Talk’ has opened up on her battle with depression.

She said:

I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression.

When I disclosed it to our manager (Mathew Knowles) at the time, bless his heart, he was like, “You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?”

So I was like, “Oh, maybe I’m just tired”

Michelle also disclosed that she had been feeling that way since she was thirteen, and not until she got to her 30 did she  realize it was depression.

She also said:

“I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that ‘I’ve been suffering from depression.,

After the show, Michelle tweeted,

 

Thank you @TheTalkCBS for being a safe place to talk about !! Don’t be afraid to reach out for help!
