According to TMZ the former Destiny’s Child star has checked herself into a mental health facility seeking help for her depression. Williams has spoken on her battle with depression in the past.
“For years I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time suffering with depression,” Williams said. “When I disclosed it to our manager 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?’”
Williams said that she didn’t realize how serious her depression was until she was in her 30s, but that by 2013, she was “suicidal.”
According to TMZ, the Destiny’s Child member checked herself into a mental health facility outside of Los Angeles a few days ago. “For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognize when it’s time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and care for your wellbeing,” she said in a statement to the publication on Tuesday (July 17).
