Stars React to Kelly Rowland’s “Dirty Laundry”

Kelly Rowland airs Dirty Laundry

R&B singer Kelly Rowland supposedly airs her dirty laundry for real in a new track that seems to confirm some of the rumors that have swirled around the Diva for years.

In the song titled “Dirty Laundry”, Rowland seems to fuel the rumors that Beyonce (pictured above right) is her half sister, and that Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles is her biological dad. Kelly also suggests that she was a victim of domestic abuse — at the hands of her ex fiancé, former NFL’er Roy Williams.

Kelly Rowland airs Dirty Laundry

The couple broke off their engagement in 2006, after the dopamine faded and Williams came to his senses and decided they were “moving too fast.”

In a 2011 interview with Cosmopolitan UK, Williams said he made the decision to call off the engagement after he attempted to fill out a pre-marriage questionnaire and discovered he really didn’t know much of anything about Kelly.

Also in an interview for Cosmopolitan UK, Kelly said she was “embarrassed” by the cancelled wedding. She indicated that — like most needy women — she had put intense pressure on Williams to pop the question.

She described an “ancient aunt” glancing at her finger every Thanksgiving and asking, “No ring just yet, huh?”

Even though Williams and Rowland remain friends, it’s obvious that Kelly still harbors some resentment towards him — as evidenced by the words in her song, which may all be a figment of her overactive imagination.

For his part, Williams denies ever beating Rowland. He also hinted that Rowland might be a woman scorned.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s friends in the industry tweeted their support of Rowland and her stale and somewhat repetitive song. Scroll down to listen to the track.

      It’s always a gimmick with Rowland. Why can’t she just put out great songs without the gimmicks? :coffee:

      I didn’t like the song…glad she got out of the domestic violence situation buttarum the cursing did not make my ears happy and the song was just meh :shrug:

    • Chile Cheese!

      I doubt that she used this song to confirm the sister thing, my best friends are my sisters so I think she was making reference to that… :stop: reaching Sandra it’s too early in the cotdayum mernin I ain’t had my :coffee: yet (really tea)

      Sandra I don’t buy it at all :nono: but whatever . She seems nice but she does the most for a sale. By the way all of her previous albums suck, and I will not be a fool and purchase one again. With that being said best of luck to her!!!

      :offtopic: Chile it’s easy as heyull to get a sorry ninja, but it’s hard as heyull to get rid of em RANDOM!!! :tea: carry on

    • capricorn83

      The song doesn’t seem like a single to me. Kelly has had a few hits, but I’ve never seen it for her solo career. :shade:

      And nothing in that song alludes to Matthew being her father. Messy, as usual Sandy :tea:

    • lovezoe

      Why does one automaticay assume it was Roy Williams? Anyways, haven’t listened to the song. Kelly always seems to have one song on the album everyone talks about then she fades back away. If I was her, I would try to get a Neutrogena contract and call it good.

    • leoluv3

      I absolutely love Kelly. I think she’s gorgeous and a great singer. I think the song is a release for her. She’s been hiding in Bey’s shadow and honestly who wouldn’t be jealous? I don’t think this song will catapult her stardom, however I do think she got off her chest what she needed to and now will hopefully be able to move on.

      i watched kelly when she was with destiny child and she always gave beyonce so much props as if she was her hype girl. maybe this was a way of making sure she was not kicked out the group also. I do believe matthew knowles is her father. in addition, i believe the domestic violence is a act to prey on others emotions for support of her album like beyonce was doomed and then lied about being pregnant (knowing she hired a surrogate, such as soloange)and after she had the baby everyone was interested in her again. SMH…. I tweeted kelly last night and said, this sound made beyonce (ONCE AGAIN) a VICTOR and you a VICTIM! she needs to stop focusing on beyonce when she in facts possess the same talent as beyonce.
