Farrah Franklin

Former Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin was arrested Thursday and charged with public intoxication and marijuana possession.

Police say Franklin got into an argument with a male friend outside a gym in DeKalb. When police arrived on the scene, she reportedly said, “These niggas won’t leave me alone.”

Police noted Franklin's bloodshot eyes and slurred speech in the police report obtained by the AJC.com.

"Not enough," she reportedly said when police asked her how much she'd had to drink.

Franklin, 35, sobbed loudly while being booked into the DeKalb County jail. She was arrested in 2011 on similar charges: disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

The Torrence, CA resident replaced original DC members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson in 1999. She survived for 6 months before quitting the group after butting heads with lead singers Beyonce and Kelly Rowland.

  • Buttercup

    It's really unfortunate on how things went down, but bayeebay, Matty Ice didn't even bother have the new girls put their vocals on the record. He used their vocals and had the new girls lip syncing to it in the video. Cold, cold world.

    I bet the real reason behind all this foolishness, is that maybe she wish she never left the group. And seeing Kelly and Bey with all their success...shes probably saying "that could have been me" and feeling sorry for herself. Plus, all you see everyday ALLLL day on the blogs, radio, news..any media outlet Beyonce, Beyonce and more Beyonce..its probably driven the poor girl to go off the rocker..she look like she needs to get a mental eval.

    Anyone remember when she was on the Millionaire Matchmaker show? I'm still trying to figure out how she was considered a millionaire. The episode was dry. Just like her non-existent career.

    I remember that bright and colorful video when she debut with DC (I think it was say my name). DC was sitting on top of the world. The timing was right, there were virtually no competition from other girl groups and their beauty appealed to the masses. This mugshot proves that there are no guarantee's in life.

    Leave Weed Alone, it has never bothered anyone...it was the alcohol, not the weed

  • ReadingUfromTX

    I remember hearing rumblings at the time that she left (or was forced to leave) because Beyonce was threatened by her beauty which I could so see. I think she was getting more shine then B. If you recall they replaced her and the other girl with Michelle who is no threat to Beyoncé beauty wise. But she's the dumb one cuz she had her foot in the door, all she had to do was resort to plan B like Latoya Lucket and Kelly R instead of "self medicate" with booze.
