Say her name, say her name. 

Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, 43, has spoken out about the viral photos of her seemingly tense exchange with a security guard on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

On Thursday, speaking with the Associated Press, Rowland told her side of the story.

“The woman knows what happened. I know what happened,” she said. “I have a boundary and I stand by those boundaries, and that is it.”

She also noted that there were “other women that attended that carpet who did not quite look like me and they didn’t get scolded or pushed off or told to get off.”

On Tuesday, a video went viral of Rowland appearing to scold a security guard at the red carpet premiere of the French-Italian film “Marcello Mio.”

Photos from the event show Rowland smiling as she walked up the red carpet steps to go into the theater — before a female usher put her arms in the singer’s eyeline as if to shoo her into the venue.

Rowland looked upset and angry as she pointed her finger at the woman.

“Other women that attended that carpet who did not quite look like me and they didn’t get scolded,” Rowland said. AP

A lip-reading expert told Page Six that Rowland allegedly said, “Don’t talk to me like that. Don’t talk to me like that. You’re not my mother. I told you not to talk to me like that.”

She eventually walked away after their tense exchange. 

This isn’t the first incident of drama that Rowland has been involved in this year.

The singer and actress made headlines in February when she walked off the “Today” show because her dressing rooms reportedly “weren’t up to par.” 

Rowland and her team reportedly played “musical dressing rooms” before inquiring about one on a different floor. 

But it was already occupied by Jennifer Lopez.

“Kelly and her team were not happy,” a source close to the incident told Page Six. “They did not like the dressing room, so they decided to pull her off the show.”

According to the source, the show offered Rowland several other options, including multiple talent dressing rooms and larger utility makeup and hair areas.

“They didn’t want that. [The show] basically offered up as much as possible, but they weren’t happy with it, so they walked and they left,” the source said.

Her last-minute exit left co-host Hoda Kotb scrambling to fill her guest-host spot, eventually tapping Rita Ora. 

In the video addressing the Cannes incident, Rowland added, “I stood my ground, and she felt like she had to stand hers.”
