In paparazzi photos, Kelly, 38, and her friend were seen embracing after having lunch and shopping.

Rumors began to swirl that Kelly and Tim were no longer a couple after she stopped wearing her wedding ring on multiple occasions. Then he stopped wearing his wedding ring, and Kelly was spotted attending celebrity functions alone. Tim still functions as her business manager.

Friends say Tim grew tired of Kelly's jet-setting lifestyle. In 2011 she became a judge on the eighth season of The X Factor UK. The couple used up their frequent flyer miles jetting from the West Coast to the UK.

Kelly and Tim were seen out & about in Los Angeles last week. Kelly had an annoyed look on her face, while Tim seemed to be amused. Neither wore their wedding rings.

A source said Tim intentionally booked Kelly's gig in Australia - far away from California, where his mistress lives.

"It's like Wendy and Kevin all over again," whispered an insider. Wendy Williams, 55, filed for divorce from her cheating husband Kevin Hunter, 47, after he welcomed a baby girl with his longtime mistress in March.

Kelly Rowland and her husband/manager, Tim Weatherspoon have reportedly split after 5 years of marriage. The 38-year-old singer and original member of the Grammy award-winning group Destiny's Child is a single mother to her and Tim's 4-year-old son Titan Weatherspoon.

Kelly was in Atlanta on Saturday to attend Tyler Perry's star-studded gala for his new film studio.

It was a reunion of sorts for Kelly, left, Beyonce (not pictured) and Michelle Williams, the current version of Destiny's Child. Beyonce sneaked into the party through a side door.

As usual, Kelly arrived to the party without Tim, who remained on the West Coast with his new girlfriend.

Which brings us to the reason behind the split.

Friends say Tim grew tired of Kelly's jet-setting lifestyle. In 2011 she became a judge on the eighth season of The X Factor UK. The couple used up their frequent flyer miles jetting from the West Coast to the UK.

Then in 2017 she was named a coach on The Voice Australia. Which meant more time spent in the sky than on the ground.

Friends say Tim cheated on Kelly "for years." They say she urged him to stay with her in Australia - but he always found an excuse to leave.

"It's like Wendy and Kevin all over again," whispered an insider. Wendy Williams, 55, filed for divorce from her cheating husband Kevin Hunter, 47, after he welcomed a baby girl with his longtime mistress in March.

As you know, Sandrarose.com broke the story that Kelly was dating her manager, Tim, in 2011. They dated for years prior to making their relationship public.

Another insider told Sandrarose.com back then that Tim forced Kelly to fire her previous manager, choreographer DeVyne Stephens.

"Tim was co-managing Kelly with Devyne," my inside source said in 2011. "A lot of people may not know [Tim is her boyfriend] because he's more like an average Joe. He's not well-known. But she really loves him."

But Kelly soon grew wary of Tim's roving eye. She reportedly gave Tim an ultimatum in 2013: marry me or get to stepping!

Then she fell pregnant with his baby, probably hoping he would settle down as a family man. The pregnancy was a well-guarded secret. My insider, who works at her record label, didn't even know she was pregnant.

Kelly previously dated NFL safety Roy Williams.
