Kelly Rowland’s Ex Speaks About Split

The NFL football player who called off his engagement with R&B singer and former Destiny?s Child member Kelly Rowland has spoken for the first time about the reasons behind their split. Dallas Cowboys defensive back Roy Williams had hoped his decision to ask his Kelly to slow their relationship down before they wed would not lead to the end of the relationship, but accepts he was scold for doing the “grown-up thing”. Williams tells Vibe Vixen he realized his romance with the Rowland was moving too fast when he sat down to fill out a pre-marriage getting-to-know-your-mate questionnaire and realized he didn’t really know anything about his bride-to-be. He recalls, “I sat her down on the bed and said, ‘Kelly, we don’t know each other well enough to get married. “At the time, she was cool with it, but I ended up catching a lot of heat for doing the grown-up thing.” Rowland admits Williams’ decision to postpone their nuptials left her really embarrassed – she had just posed in a wedding gown for the cover of Modern Bride magazine. She tells Vibe Vixen, “I was so embarrassed. I didn’t even want to go out of the house and I really didn’t want to put my family in the position of having to answer questions about the wedding.”
