In a social media post Tuesday night, Michelle Williams opened up about recently checking herself into a mental health facility to help with her long-standing issue of depression, a fact fans of the Grammy award-winning singer had known for a while.
While on The Talk last year, the former Destiny’s Child member came clean about suffering since she was a child.
“I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that, ‘I’ve been suffering from depression.’ I didn’t know until I was in my 30s what was going on…I’ve been suffering since the age of 13, I didn’t know what to call it, I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time [Destiny’s Child], suffering with depression.”
She even disclosed the information to the group’s former manager Mathew Knowles and he shrugged it off.
“When I disclosed it to our manager [Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like ‘y’all just signed a multi-million dollar deal, you’re about to go on tour, what do you have to be depressed about.’ So I was like, “maybe I’m just tired.”
We’re just glad the 37-year-old, who got engaged in April, is still here and seemingly healthy. Our continued prayers are with Michelle.
