TMZ are reporting that Michelle Williams, one of three singers that made up the group Destiny’s Child, has checked herself into a mental health facility to seek help for depression.
Sources have said that Williams has been in a facility just outside Los Angeles for several days now and is being treated for mental health issues.
In an interview last year with ‘The Talk’ over in America, Michelle spoke openly about her battle with depression, telling the hosts that she had been suicidal.
In a statement released on Tuesday local time Michelle announced that she has always been an advocate for people seeking help for mental health issues and is leading by example.
“For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognise when it’s time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and car for your wellbeing,” the statement read.
“Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of this in need.”
Williams’ last performance on stage was with her previous girl gang when Destiny’s Child, including Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, famously reunited at Coachella in April. This was the first time that the group had performed together for a number of years.
