Michelle Williams dumped her fiance TWICE during depression battle
We're glad to hear the singer is on the mend.
Michelle Williams is busy planning her wedding and starring on a reality show wither fiancee, Chad Johnson, but the couple faced some serious issues after becoming engaged.
The former Destiny’s Child member revealed that her battle with depression nearly ended her relationship with her man.
The singer told PEOPLE that she broke up with Johnson just weeks after he asked for her hand in marriage in March. They tried to work things out for three months before Williams broke it off again, just hours before she drove herself to a Los Angeles hospital for treatment. Days later, she checked into a rehab facility to treat her depression.
“I thought I was over depression, I thought, ‘I’m good!’ I’ve got love, I’m working out…But I was so angry. The rage built up in me. I did not attempt suicide, but I was questioning [life],” she said.
Michelle Williams had battled depression earlier in her life and recognized similar symptoms when she was prepping for her Destiny’s Child reunion at Beychella.
“The entire year we were rehearsing every day for hours…I was burying it, and before you knew it, I was looking up out of the pit like, ‘Oh my God,'” she told PEOPLE.
Fortunately, Chad Johnson wasn’t willing to walk away while his wife-to-be faced her issues.
“I would’ve understood [if he left],” she explained. “He’s been praying for a wife. He didn’t pray for a depressed wife.”
Now, the couple is back together and continue to work things out together while planning their dream wedding that is currently set for this summer.
“People fall off the fitness wagon, people fall off the wellness wagon, but I can’t fall off the [therapy] wagon,” the star reiterated. “I have to get healed to live this happy life.”
