Kelly Rowland Nixes Accident Rumors

Despite rumors of a tragic accident in Jakarta, reps for singer Kelly Rowland say she is safe and sound and currently in Los Angeles.

A rumor surfaced last weekend that the singer, a founding member of Destiny's Child, was in involved in a tragic accident in the capital of Indonesia. But it was "simply not true," a press release said Monday.

A statement from Rowland's representatives said that a scheduled concert in Jakarta was canceled following a bombing in the capital city.

A low-explosive blast occurred Saturday in an American fast-food restaurant in East Jakarta, according to a report from The Jakarta Post.

Kelly was in Singapore at the time and flew from there to Los Angeles, the release said.

"Kelly extends her warm thank you to her fans for their concern, but wants everyone to know she is well and doing fine," the statement said.

Earlier this year, Rowland's rep shot down rumors that she was expecting.

"Contrary to rumors appearing online and in the tabloids, Kelly Rowland, of Destiny's Child, is not pregnant," a statement released in August said.
