Looks like everybody is looking to spill the tea on Beyoncé ever since the unauthorized biography of the superstar hit the stands. This week, Farrah Franklin joined in by sharing her side of the rumors that she was kicked out of Destiny's Child for her lack of work ethic.
First, a quick rewind: Franklin was evicted from the group after just six months back in 2000. At the time, Bey told TRL's Carson Daly that she was asked to leave because she missed too many shows. According to Franklin, it didn't exactly go down like that. She says it was her health that caused her to sit out for a short while, and when she came back, she didn't exactly feel welcome.
“I came back from being very, very, very sick and nobody, anyone was showing concern at all except for Michelle [Williams],” Franklin tells VLADTV. Though she went back to work despite doctor's orders, she says, “I was just getting kicked and punched around and I was already dehydrated and when I went into the room for us to have a group conversation, it was like everyone started ganging up on me, everyone has something to say. I’m like ‘Ok, I’m not about to do this.'”
Then, she says, she quit, and the decade-long rumors of her being fired are just a coverup for the truth.
