Beyonce Cuts Kelly Rowland Out Of Aaliyah Birthday Tribute On Instagram (PHOTOS)

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes




Well, this is awkward.

On Thursday, both Beyonce and Kelly Rowland paid tribute to Aaliyah on what would have been her 35th birthday by sharing the same Instagram photo of themselves posing with the singer.

But in Beyonce’s version of the photo, Rowland is cut out of the picture.

Rowland posted the original photo (see right), taken at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, along with the caption, “#weloveyouAaliyah #tbt.”

Four hours later, Beyonce shared the cropped picture — showing just herself and Aaliyah — writing, “God bless baby girl.”

Of course, Beyonce and Rowland are close friends, so the Instagram slight seems inadvertent.

Check out both photos below, and tell us what you think.
