Kelly Rowland recently opened up about her struggles to keep with a lavish, celebrity lifestyle — and it almost cost her everything.

She spoke out about her past financial woes during a chat with pastor Erwin McManus.

She says her life began to change when she made the decision to share her blessings.

“Literally the following week things just started to happen. Just good things and it wasn’t even like necessarily financial. It was like oh, it’s already been taken care of you’re okay’ or ‘oh you just had something that came in from like ten years ago,” she confessed.

“[A] check that just came in from something that you did ten years ago come in yeah you’re good. I remember calling my business manager — I said this month, I’m giving 20%. He’s like you have lost your mind? I said no no no, I said. I have not. I said you just watch how God is gonna flip this. For what I gave, I got back double.”
