"She doesn’t care if she comes across like a diva if she knows that she is advocating for herself," the source continued. "She isn’t fake and wanted to set a clear boundary."

It seems Rowland has been making a strong effort to draw firm lines when it comes to how she's treated. As OK! previously reported, the singer abruptly left NBC Studios when she'd been scheduled to guest host Today With Hoda & Jenna.

Although initial reports claimed Rowland had merely been unhappy with certain aspects of the dressing room, it was later revealed that she had actually been upset about her interview with Savannah Guthrie's questions about Beyoncé.

She reportedly requested there be no queries about Beyoncé and Destiny's Child because "she wants to leave that behind."

However, the broadcast journalist repeatedly pushed Rowland for answers when asking about the "Single Ladies" artist's new country album. Rowland said she was "so proud of her," but Guthrie again asked for her specific thoughts on the project. The 43-year-old simply repeated that she was "so proud."

"Kelly was upset about Savannah's aggressive questioning about Beyoncé," the insider added. "She and her team were not happy and felt disrespected."
