Kelly Rowland was a hot topic over the weekend after the Destiny’s Child singer and actress reportedly walked out on her “Today” show appearance over a dressing room dispute.

What Happened With Kelly Rowland At The ‘Today’ Show?

Long story short – Kelly, who is doing press to promote her forthcoming Netflix film, Mea Culpa, guested in the 8 a.m. hour of “Today,” and was slated to return in the fourth hour as guest host with Hoda Kotb.

Apparently, Kelly Rowland wasn’t feeling her dressing room, so she grabbed her purse like Viola Davis and bounced.
