Former Destiny'S Child star Farrah Franklin has urged critics not to speculate about her disorderly conduct arrest on Sunday (20Jul14). The singer, 33, was taken into custody by police in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after enjoying a night out with American football players Da'Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp. They returned to Sapp's home in the early hours of Sunday, but the sportsmen called cops after Franklin started shouting and slamming doors, according to TMZ.com. She ran off and was allegedly found lying intoxicated on a neighbour's front yard. Franklin, who was subsequently released on bail, has yet to open up about the events which led to her arrest, but she took to her Twitter.com blog on Monday (21Jul14) to thank fans for their messages of support and blast those who were mocking her legal troubles. In a series of posts, she wrote, "Unbothered and staying prayed up (sic) and, away from any negativity... Don't judge what you don't know. "The sad thing is people LIVE for drama but run from the truth, Smh (shaking my head). There's always 3 sides to a story your side, my side and the TRUTH! But the truth is normally not as interesting as a lie, lol (laugh out loud). "Thank you to EVERYONE who has reached out to send me love and Blessings during this messy time in my life it's greatly appreciated." She added, "I pray for God to give me strength in every weak and weary place in My life and, for Him to turn My obstacles into Victories. Amen... God gives all of his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers." Franklin was briefly a member of Beyonce's girl group before she was dismissed in 2000.
