Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams really opened up about her battle with depression while guest co-hosting ‘The Talk’ on Wednesday.

via People:

“I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression,” she said on the show. “When I disclosed it to our manager [Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?’” she recalled Beyoncé’s dad telling her at the time. 

“So I was like, ‘Oh, maybe I’m just tired,’” she continued. However, Williams’ depression only continued to get worse “to the point where I was suicidal … and wanted out” from the group.

“I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that ‘I’ve been suffering from depression,’” she said.
