Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams recently reunited to perform at the Stellar Awards, but they weren’t appearing as Destiny’s Child. Williams, who has launched a successful gospel career since the 2006 split, was up for three awards for her song “Say Yes,” which originally appeared on her 2014 album Journey to Freedom.
After the surprise performance, rumours are now circulating about a possible tour. There’s just one problem. They can’t tour using their old group name.
“Although Destiny’s Child is made up of the three ladies, Beyoncé’s father and former manager Mathew Knowles owns one-fourth of the group as well. Anytime they do anything under the name Destiny’s Child, he has involvement in it and money from it,” an insider told the Daily Mail.
“At best they maybe could offer him a flat rate or one-time settlement to buy out his portion of the group, but otherwise we may never get a Destiny’s Child reunion because none of them want him to benefit financially,” the source said.
