The girl group call it a day...

DESTINY’S CHILD have announced they will split following the tour for their current album.

The hugely successful girl-band are currently on the road in support of ’Destiny Fulfilled’, which was released last year.

Speaking from the stage in Barcelona, the band announced the news. At the same time, a statement was issued to MTV news in the US.

The statement reads: “We have been working together as Destiny’s Child since we were nine, and touring together since we were 14. After a lot of discussion and some deep soul searching, we realized that our current tour has given us the opportunity to leave Destiny’s Child on a high note, united in our friendship and filled with an overwhelming gratitude for our music, our fans, and each other.

”After all these wonderful years working together, we realised that now is the time to pursue our personal goals and solo efforts in earnest. No matter what happens, we will always love each other as friends and sisters and will always support each other as artists. We want to thank all of our fans for their incredible love and support and hope to see you all again as we continue fulfilling our destinies.”

Following their European dates, the band will tour the US throughout the late summer, and are currently scheduled to end the tour in September.
