Kelly Rowland Reportedly Walked Off ‘Today’ Show Over Dressing Room Issue

Singer Kelly Rowland is making headlines for walking out of NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday morning because of a subpar dressing room.

The Houston native was booked to appear as a guest during the 8 a.m. hour of the show and was slated to serve as a guest host alongside Hoda Kotb for the fourth hour during the “Today with Hoda & Jenna.” She was to be the fill-in for Jenna Bush Hager.

However, at the last minute, she decided to leave due to being unsatisfied with her accommodations.

“Kelly and her team were not happy. They did not like the dressing room, so they decided to pull her off the show, leaving [Kotb] without a guest host for the 10 a.m. hour,” an insider shared with Page Six.

 Rowland was on the show to promote her new Tyler Perry-produced Netflix movie, “Mea Culpa,” in which she stars and is also a producer.

Rowland’s abrupt exit left “Today” insiders perplexed because, “She’s beloved at ‘Today.’ She was getting the full hour, and Hoda’s the biggest hype woman on the planet! It made no sense,” a Page Six reports.

According to insiders, the production team made efforts to meet Rowland’s requests by offering her alternative options, such as various talent dressing rooms and larger makeup and hair areas.

Rowland’s team inquired about a green room upstairs because “they didn’t like the one she was in.”

Unfortunately, the upstairs room was occupied by Jennifer Lopez, who arrived at the studio before Rowland to promote her new album, “This Is Me… Now,” and her accompanying film project, “The Greatest Love Story Never Told.”

Dressing rooms at “Today” are known to be some of the smallest in the TV industry — practically “glorified closets,” as one source put it.
