Kelly Rowland has revealed that she played her Dirty Laundry song for Beyoncé before its release.

The song caused some controversy when it was first released as it refers to Rowland's earlier feelings of resentment towards Beyoncé and a previous abusive relationship in which she was involved.

Rowland told US radio station 93.9 WKYS that she had doubts about putting the song on her new album because it is "just so much", though she also described it as a "form of therapy".

When asked about her supposed feelings of jealous towards Beyoncé, Rowland explained: "I was young, you know? I was so young. That's the most that I can say about that - I was so young and in a relationship and my head was completely gone.

"That's just basically what happened and with my sisters, what matters to me the most right now is what we have. And I love her and Michelle [Williams] more than anything, and they mean the world to me.

"I'm so grateful for what we have as sisters, away from Destiny's Child."
