Kelly Rowland was 10 years old when she formed Destiny's Child with her friend, Beyonce Knowles. With third member Michelle Williams later joining, it would become one of the best-selling girl groups the world has seen.
Ostensibly, Rowland was living a life of extreme wealth as the group sky-rocketed to fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s, selling out stadiums across seas.

“No-one would believe this, and this’ll actually be the first time I'm gonna talk about it. I almost lost everything, because I was so busy trying to keep up,” Rowland shared.
