Kelly Rowland proved her old mantra true: she is, in fact, a survivor. The former Destiny's Child star was literally lost at sea somehwere off the coast of Provincetown, Mass., on Friday. But you can breathe easy, because she has been found and all is well. According to Lt. Ruairi White told the Cape Cod Times that the private boat lost its course when the captain became disoriented while following a commercial whale-watching vessel.
TowBoat U.S. Provincetown, a commercial towboat company, came to the rescue and escorted the private boat safely back to shore. The tow boat company kept everyone abreast of the critical situation on their Facebook page by posting: "Escorting a lost boat with Kelly Roland from Destiny's Child onboard. 33 miles North of Provincetown" [sic]. Judging by their spelling of the singer's name, it's obvious the team consists of zealous Destiny's Child fans.
TowBoat U.S Provincetown then proceeded to follow up at 6:15 AM on Saturday morning, "She didn't get in until around 11pm." Phew! Those Cape Cod waters can be treacherous!
At 10:53 PM that same Saturday, the company announced that the passengers "were great. Just a little shook up." (The company used a strikingly similar phrase to describe the feelings of a distressed bird that was found on one of their vessels only days prior to this incident.) Minutes later, the company posted a photo of the tow boat rescuer and a very grateful-looking Rowland (above).
Now, to celebrate Rowland's return to safety, a little mood music:
