Michelle Williams says she was 'suicidal' when she was in Destiny's Child

Michelle Williams says she was 'suicidal' when she was in Destiny's Child

"When I disclosed it to our manager (Matthew) at the time, bless his heart, he was like, 'You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal". Go see a professional so that they can assess you.

"So I was like, "Oh, maybe I'm just tired".

Explaining how she had been confused by the way she felt at the time, Michelle told the panel: "For years, I'm in one of the top-selling female groups of all time suffering with depression".

"It got really, really bad ... to the point of I was suicidal", Williams admits to audible gasps in the audience.

Following her TV appearance, Michelle took to Twitter to urge people suffering with mental health issues to speak out. Particularly, Mr. Knowles, who may not have understood her battle at the time either and wasn't the only person who tried reassuring her that she was OK.

Almost two decades later, former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams has revealed that she battled depression at the height of the girl group's fame. "I think he wanted me to be grateful, which I was, but I was still sad, you know?" Williams also clarified on Twitter that when she said, "I wanted out", about her suicidal thoughts, she didn't mean she wanted out of Destiny's Child - she was talking about life. "I just ask that the headlines and quotes reflect what I said", she wrote.

She was a member of the hottest girl group with singles topping the charts and a world tour in the works.

Now, the performer wants to focus on normalizing the discussion around mental health and end the stigma associated with depression. "Don't be afraid to reach out for help!"

Following her courageous confession, Michelle received an email from a kindhearted fan, who wanted to thank her for standing up to the stigma surrounding mental health. "Depression is not okay, but it is okay to go get help".
