He said: “I want to pull back the curtain. I feel it’s time to give the world an opportunity to hear, see and feel the victories and failures that I’ve had as a husband, father and manager who risked everything in pursuit of fulfilling dreams – those of mine and others.”

Called Survivor: The Destiny’s Child Musical, the production will be developed for Broadway and West End stages and is set to premiere next year as the launch of a tour.

The musical will ‘bare an honest depiction of the achievements, obstacles and evolution of the world’s most iconic girl group and the mastermind behind them’, his statement reads.
