Famous singer Michelle Williams decided to reveal during a recent interview that she had dealt with depression. The star claimed that her disease made her have suicidal thoughts. Actually, it all happened when Michelle was part of famous girls’ band Destiny’s Child, together with Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles.
The star also revealed that things got so bad for her that she just wanted out of the band. Michelle made all these claims during an interview with The Talk. She said that she was just a teenager back then and handling everything has definitely not been simple for Michelle.
“I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression,” the star said. “When I disclosed it to our manager [Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?'” she went on to add. Michelle said that at first she thought she was just tired, but then she started feeling even worse.
The star revealed that she finally reached “to the point where I was so suicidal … and wanted out” from the famous girls’ band. Michelle went on to make a much unexpected revelation. She said that she was actually dealing with depression since the age of 13, but she never realized what she was suffering from. Only when she was in her 30s, Michelle started to realize that she was dealing with a severe disease.
“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,'” the famous and talented singer said during her interview. Michelle seemed to have enjoyed opening up about this subject while talking to The Talk as following her interview the singer took to social media to thank the CBS show for being “a safe place to talk about depression.”
The famous singer revealed nothing else regarding her struggle. Hopefully, Michelle had managed to overcome her issues.
