Kelly Rowland leaves the “Today” show after a locker room issue

Kelly Rowland takes her confessions elsewhere.

The “Motivation” singer and former Destiny's Child member abruptly left the set of Today With Hoda & Jenna on Thursday because of a dressing room issue when she was scheduled to fill in as guest host for Jenna Bush Hager, EW has learned. The strike came after Rowland appeared as a guest on the Today show at 8am and fellow singer Rita Ora eventually stepped in as guest presenter.

A representative for Today declined to comment on the matter, and a representative for Rowland did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

A source told PEOPLE, “Kelly walked out because she and her team didn't like her dressing room,” and then Ora “agreed to step in at the last minute.”

According to Page Six, which first reported the news, Rowland asked about using a green room upstairs because she was unhappy with the one she was in, but it was used by Jennifer Lopez, who was on site to to promote her new album “This” Is Me… Now and film “The Greatest Love Story Never Told”. According to the report, Rowland was then offered several other options, but she chose to leave instead.

Rowland was on Today to promote her new film Mea Culpa, a legal thriller in which she stars and which she also produced. The film will be released on Netflix on February 23rd. Ora, meanwhile, recently joined The Masked Singer as a season 11 panelist.
