There’s been widespread speculation that Beyonce’s Super Bowl half-time show will feature a reunion of Destiny’s Child, but now one member of the group says the rumors are not true.

If you go to the Fela! website and try to buy tickets, it clearly states, “Michelle Williams will not be appearing January 31st – February 3rd,” which means she’s totally available to be at the Super Bowl.

Apparently NBC execs weren’t too happy when Curry refused to engage in small talk with Matt Lauer during her first return to the Today show following her August exit. Word is, she’s been trying to get out of her NBC contract so she could possibly move to CNN.
