Former DC member Michelle Williams released a statement Tuesday severing ties with her longtime manager, “after much prayer and consideration.”
“From my time in Destiny’s Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me,” Williams stated. “We’ve shared great success together. However, as I move in a new direction in my career, I felt it was time. I wish Mathew Knowles and the Music World Entertainment family all the best.”
In January 2009, former DC member Kelly Rowland announced that she was leaving Knowles’ management company Music World Entertainment.
As previously reported, Williams returns to Broadway as Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning hit musical Chicago for a seven-week limited engagement, Monday, Feb. 8 through Sunday, March 28 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St.).
