Former Destiny's Child member Farrah Franklin was "hysterical and drugged" ... so says NFL player Da'Quan Bowers who told the 911 dispatcher he was certain his houseguest was high on something.

Franklin is screaming bloody murder as an uber-calm Bowers tells the dispatcher she had been drinking and was under the influence of drugs.

We broke the story ... Franklin was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday morning after she allegedly became drunk and belligerent.

Cops found Franklin lying in a neighbor's front yard, telling them she wanted to sleep in the woods.

Former Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin was so drunk when she was arrested Sunday morning ... she was found laying in a random person's front yard and told cops she planned on sleeping in the woods.

TMZ broke the story ... Franklin was arrested early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct, and the details are crazy.

According to the police NFL player Da'Quan Bowers flew Franklin to Myrtle Beach.  The two of them, along with NFL player Ricky Sapp went out on the town Saturday day and night ... and the alcohol was flowing.  They all went back to Sapp's place and it became apparent to everyone Franklin was wasted.

Sapp and Bowers both told police they thought Franklin had been doing drugs.  Bowers told police he was suspicious of Franklin because she would go to the bathroom for extended periods of time.

Bowers and Sapp say they called cops after Franklin went nuts, screaming and slamming doors. They told police Franklin fled. Cops combed the neighborhood and eventually found Franklin laying down in a neighbor's lawn. 

Police described Franklin as "highly intoxicated" and "unsteady on her feet," but she denied using drugs. She told police she had nowhere to go and planned on sleeping in the woods.

She was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Arrested For Disorderly Conduct

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin was arrested in South Carolina early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct ... TMZ has learned and our sources tell us alcohol was definitely involved.

Franklin -- who who spent 5 months with the group in 2000 before Beyonce and Kelly Rowland gave her the boot -- was booked into the Horry County Detention Center in Conway around 5AM.

0720-farrah-performing-sub-01So far, it's unclear what led to the arrest ... but we're told she was ticketed for disorderly conduct.

Hours before, Franklin happily posted a picture on the beach.

She was released Sunday afternoon on bond.

This is not Franklin's first arrest for flying off the handle.  She was popped in 2011 in L.A. for disorderly conduct ... and we're told booze was also involved.  She claimed she was the victim of racial profiling.

LeToya Luckett

So ... Did She Buy

Beyonce's Album?

Did LeToya Luckett Buy Beyonce Album
Imagine for a second that you are LeToya Luckett. You were kicked out of Destiny's Child right when the group took off. You sued (not once, but twice) Beyonce, her father and Kelly Rowland.

It's been over 10 years since all that went down. Bey has gone out to become HUGE and last December she famously dropped her latest album with zero promotion and EVERYBODY was talking about it.

The question  ... did you put aside your differences and fork over your hard-earned cash for a copy? Did you ignore it all together? Or did you download it illegally off a friend?

What would you do? What do you think she did ...

Beyonce's New Haircut

Ain't THAT Shocking

Beyonce Carter crushed it when she decided to chop off all of her hair -- 'cause when it comes to style, B can do NO WRONG ... so says her Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland.

"Beyonce can have a STRAND of hair on her head and still be fine," Kelly told TMZ as she was leaving Madeo in L.A. last night.

But it's not like Beyonce revolutionized women's hair fashion when she decided to hack off her locks -- 'cause as Kelly tells us, "We have been rocking short haircuts since the beginning of time."

In fact, Kelly had a pretty short 'do way before Beyonce did -- and looked great -- but even Kelly admits it wasn't that original of an idea at the time.

Beyonce's Pregnant?!

WHAT?!?!

EXCLUSIVE

051713_kelly_rowland_launch
Former "Destiny's Child" singer Kelly Rowland had NO IDEA Beyonce was pregnant with a second child ... either that, or she deserves an Oscar for the performance she just gave in a L.A. parking lot.

Kelly was on her way out of a cafe when we asked how she felt about the latest reports ... that Beyonce is pregnant with baby #2 -- and Kelly looked totally flabbergasted, saying, "WHAT?!?!"

But it's likely she actually did know ... because as soon as we started asking more questions, Kelly clammed up.

So we gotta ask ...

The girls from Destiny’s Child have re-joined forces … to sing together … but it ain’t exactly a reunion … this according to Kelly Rowland.

Rowland told Billboard MagazineBeyonce and Michelle Williams both sang a little bit on a track for Kelly’s upcoming solo album, but Rowland is adamant it’s NOT like old times.

“It's not a Destiny's Child track … It's me featuring Beyonce and Michelle," she explained.

D.C. fans have been hoping for a reunion ever since the gals performed at the Super Bowl, back in Feb … the first time they’ve been on stage together since 2006.

Even though the Rowland project isn’t an official reunion, seems like it’s only a matter of time ... hopefully.

Michelle Williams wants to make one thing clear -- babysitting for Beyonce's baby girl is just a part-time gig ... because she's not the only Destiny's Child singer doing diaper duty for Blue Ivy.

Last night in NYC, Michelle revealed Kelly Rowland also pulled a shift watching B.I. in Beyonce's hotel suite ... during B's concert in Atlantic City last weekend.

In the middle of the show, Beyonce thanked Michelle for babysitting -- but Michelle 'fessed up to us she had some help ... and even got to go downstairs to see some of the show.

Music royalty for parents AND smoking hot nannies? Blue Ivy wins again.
