Beyonce

Cuts Kelly Out of the Picture

1/17/2014 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117-beyonce-instagram-picBeyonce has cut Kelly Rowland out of her life -- and it was truly the unkindest cut of all.

Check out this photo (above) Beyonce posted on Instagram last night ... in honor of Aaliyah's 35th birthday.

0117-beyonce-kelly-instagram-picBut here's what you don't see ... Kelly Rowland ... who was in the pic when it was snapped in 2001 at the MTV Movie Awards, mere months before Aaliyah was killed in a plane crash.

Kelly posted the original photo on Instagram hours before Beyonce. Then Beyonce reposted it in black and white, completely cropping Kelly out of the pic ... and putting herself smack in the middle of the shot.

So we gotta ask ...

This picture and the fact she posted this makes me so mad. Beyoncé fake as ****. You know damn well B and Jay killed aaliyah and her career. Just cuz Aaliyah didn't wanna be with jay and rejected the roc and was with Damon dash. Bey was just the next bitch and hopped on jays dick for fame and now she's a lil puppet. And she knows it. Please. She could never be Aaliyah. Look at the pic Aaliyah's facial expression is so uncomfortable and forced while Beyonces smiling her ass off cuz she knows what's gunna happen. This pic was just a couple months before aaliyah died. It really is so sad. Beyoncé could never be as pure as Aaliyah. Bitch does every lil thing her man says and what to do and how to act. Fake ass weak minded bitch.

Did Kelly screw one of Beyonce's boy friends back in the day?

Its not disrespectful. The photo wasn't for Kelly, it was for Aailyah. Big deal.Kelly should do the same and crop it the other way.

I don't see it that way. I think because she posted it specifically to honor Aaliyah, she probably wanted to use a shot of just the two of them. I don't see anything wrong with that.

If Aaliyah hadn't died Beyonce wouldn't be as significant. Aaliyah was doing big thangs.

All making too much out of it. I celebrate my kids all the time, cutting others out of the pic. Maybe that was the only pic they were in together

Funny how in the black and white cropped pic, B is fully present, ravishing and Aaliyah is kind of washed out but in the actual pic Aaliyah's effortless and sophisticated "less is more" beauty put Beyoncé to shame

TMZ really needs to add a "Don't Care" option in every poll.

Eh, I find it a tad tacky of her only because Kelly had posted hers first and was nice enough to leave the pic as it was. Beyoncé would've cut Aaliyah out the pic if she coulda. Ha!
