Michelle Williams Sets the Record Straight on Her Famous Stage Fall With Destiny's Child

Michelle Williams has set the record straight over her infamous on-stage fall during a Destiny's Child performance.

The singer hilariously pointed out that she is not the only star to suffer an on-stage mishap in a passionate rant during an appearance on Larry Reid Live earlier this week.

"I fell one time!" she insisted.

The now infamous moment took place back in 2005 when the group were performing their hit single "Soldier" live on 106 & Park.

As the trio walked on stage, Williams lost her footing and collapsed to the stage floor almost immediately, earning her a side-eye look from bandmates Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles in a clip that has gone viral endless times.

The incident has earned Williams a reputation for being clumsy—but she hit back at that description this week by pointing out all of the other big-name performers who have lost their footing on stage.

When the host referenced the tumble, Williams shot back: "You tried it! Haven't I stayed on my feet...You gonna make me curse!

"First of all I need people to stop saying 'she's so clumsy.' I fell one time. You ninjas have to stop! That's like causing PTSD; that's probably why I ain't 'gon do no music. Y'all gon hear me talk."

She continued: "I fell one time. It took me maybe... oooh that happened in 2005... it probably took me a good 12 or 13 years to watch it. It was bad."

Williams pointed out that Robbie Williams, Usher and Madonna have all fallen on stage, adding: "Beyonce has fallen. Kelly passed out!"

"So why do y'all single me out?" she asked? "What is it about me?"

"Y'all single me out—single your baby daddy that don't pay his child support!" she joked.

Joking about the fall itself, the 42-year-old said: "I don't know what happened that day, I was just minding my business, honey, tipping for my life, baby, and the floor met me!"

The clip was shared on Twitter by user @blaccbrry_ where it has amassed almost 20,000 likes at the time of publishing.

Since Destiny's Child disbanded in the mid-2000s to focus on their solo careers, Williams has carved out a successful niche as a gospel singer and has released a number of solo albums.

The star has released her own book this year titled: "Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life—and Can Save Yours."

Fans of the much-loved girl group were surprised this week when the "Survivor" hitmakers hinted at a joint comeback.

The group has changed their header photo on social media, prompting Destiny's Child fans to pray for a reunion in the near future.
