Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Former Destiny’s Child Member Farrah Franklin Arrested for Disorderly Conduct

Songbird turned jailbird! Farrah Franklin, best known for her very short stint alongside Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams in Destiny’s Child, was arrested for disorderly conduct on Sunday, July 20 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to TMZ.

NFL players Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp went out with Farrah on the beach on Saturday night, and apparently, when they got back to Ricky’s house, Farrah was reportedly wasted and got very crazy! The men eventually called police due to her antics, saying that they thought the former singer might be involved with drugs since she would go to the bathroom for long periods of time. Farrah was found lying down in the front yard of a neighbor, claiming she was going to sleep in the woods. It was reported that police described her as “highly intoxicated,” but said she denied using drugs.

Farrah appeared in Destiny’s Child for five months back in 2000. She, along with Michelle, replaced LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, but was fired from the group shortly after. Of course, DC continued on as a trio before disbanding in 2006.

“We have to say that Farrah was not kicked out of Destiny’s Child,” Beyonce said on Total Request Live at the time. “She actually did not show up for three major promotional events, one of which was ‘MTV All Access.’ She walked out on [that], and the KUBE Summer Jam was another one in Seattle. You’ll all see that on the [‘All Access’] show. We also had a five-day promotional tour in Australia, which was our first visit there and very important, and she didn’t come. So we all agreed that Farrah and Destiny’s Child should part ways, and we wish her the best in the future. But it wasn’t a management decision, it was a group decision.”

Sad to see Farrah in such disarray! I’m not sure what she’s up to now, but hopefully she gets herself back on track soon.
