Former Destiny’s Child Member Arrested

(VIA CNN) — Farrah Franklin, whose claim to fame is five months backing up Beyonce in the band Destiny’s Child, was charged with disorderly conduct Sunday.

Franklin, 33, spent seven hours in the Horry County, South Carolina, jail Sunday morning after police took her into custody near summertime hotspot Myrtle Beach, according to jail records.

She was released Sunday afternoon after posing for a mugshot and posting a $280 bond for the disorderly conduct charge, the record said.

The spokesman with the Horry County Police Department, which made the arrest, did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.

CNN has been unable to reach Franklin or her representative for comment. But she did post messages on Twitter after her release from jail Sunday evening that were apparently related to the arrest.

“Have a Blessed Sunday my Luvs @ Myrtle Beach International Airport,” she tweeted. It was accompanied by an Instagram graphic that read “May the Lord turn all your sour moments into lemonade.”

A later tweet said “I’m good just hate the dumb media sometimes, but hey this is the job I signed up for.”

Franklin, who lives in the Los Angeles area, was a member of the girl group for just five months in 2000. She was added to the group to replace another singer who had been dismissed by Matthew Knowles, father of its lead singer, Beyonce.
