The traumas within R&B supergroup Destiny’s Child continue with the news that another member has left.

Farrah Franklin‘s departure was announced in a brief statement from the group’s label, Columbia Records.

It read: “Destiny’s Child and Farrah Franklin have parted ways. The group will continue as a trio for the time being with original members Beyonci Knowles and Kelly Rowland and new member Michelle Williams.”

Franklin had only been with the four-piece for five months after she and Michelle Williams replaced LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.

The remaining three members are on their way to Australia for a promotional tour before a number of US dates with Christine Aguilera kicking off on July 31 in Bonner Springs, Kansas.
