Kelly Rowland Had a Heated Exchange With the Staff on the Red Carpet in Cannes. "I have a boundary. And I Stand by Those Boundaries."


Kelly Rowland had an interesting moment on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France. A video of Kelly having a heated exchange with a worker on the red carpet for the premiere of Marcello Mio went viral.

When explaining her exchange with the worker, Kelly said, "The woman knows what happened. I know what happened. And I have a boundary! And I stand by those boundaries. And that is it! And there were other women that attended that carpet who did not quite look like me, and they didn't get scolded or pushed off or told to get off. And I stood my ground, and she felt like she had to stand hers. But I stood my ground, and that was it." 

While the singer is usually a class act in public, according, to iHeart, "The people who are assigned to helping stars walk the red carpet were being aggressive, and Kelly was trying to ignore it," according to a source who spoke to the Daily Mail. "By the time she got to the last woman, she had had it because she scolded Kelly and told her to move when she was trying to wave to fans and help the paparazzi get their shot." The source continued, "She doesn't care if she comes across like a diva if she knows that she is advocating for herself. She isn't fake and wanted to set a clear boundary."

Rowland is an original member of the R&B group Destiny's Child. Although the group disbanded, the songstress still records and performs solo music and is an actress. The former Destiny's Child member starred in Tyler Perry's 2024 film Mea Culpa on Netflix.
