Former Destiny's Child member arrested in SC

Myrtle Beach, SC (WLTX) -- A short-time member of R&B Pop group Destiny's Child was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday.

33-year-old Farrah Franklin was arrested shortly before 5:00AM Sunday for disorderly conduct.

She was a member of powerhouse R&B Pop group Destiny's Child for only five months in 2000, and performed in the group's video for their most successful single "Say My Name," though she didn't actually sing on the single due to conflicts between some members of the group.

Franklin had been recruited into the group along with Michelle Williams in late 1999, replacing original members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Robertson following the production of their second album "Writing's On The Wall," due to conflicts over finances.

Shortly after she joined the group and performed in the music video for "Say My Name," she was apparently ejected from the group for ignoring promotional appearances and shows, though she attributed her departure to negative vibes among all involved with Destiny's Child.

Farrah Franklin paid a $280 bond Sunday shortly after noon, and according to an Instagram post, headed home to Sherman Oaks, in Southern California.
