Michelle Williams was one-third of one of the most successful girl groups of the early noughties.
Together with Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland, Michelle and Destiny’s Child won countless Grammy, American Music, Billboard and BET awards and sold more than 60 million records.
But while singing pop and R&B hits like Say My Name, Survivor and Bootylicious, Michelle has revealed she was struggling with a deep and dark depression.
"I'm in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression," she said while co-hosting US talk show The Talk.
"When I disclosed it to our manager [Beyoncé's father, Matthew Knowles] he was like, 'Y'all just signed a multi-million dollar deal, you're about to go on tour, what do you have to be depressed about?'
"I was like, maybe I'm just tired."
It wasn't until things got "really, really bad" that Michelle - now 37 - realised she was suffering from mental illness.
