*Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland is dismissing recent claims from their manager Mathew Knowles that the group will reunite, saying she and her band mates will decide their own future – thank you very much.

“Matthew Knowles is not a member of Destiny’s Child so with all due respect that’s not a decision he can make,” Rowland told celeb blogger Perez Hilton. “That’s up to myself, Beyonce and Michelle.”

Last week, Mathew, the father of Beyonce, told Entertainment Tonight: “Contrary to rumors online of a Destiny’s Child reunion, there are no plans for the group to reunite for a performance or album – the rumors are false.”

Meanwhile, Kelly went on to promote her upcoming album, promising it will be “more varied” than her previous projects.

“I wanted to make sure I had a proper balance, ’cause I couldn’t forget about the R&B and urban side – Destiny Child and early Kelly Rowland projects, but when I experience dance music it was like nothing else – and it was very natural,” she said.
