The singer is pictured looking very emotional
It’s not known what made Kelly so emotional as she celebrated her 32nd birthday but a friend kept watch over her as she wiped away tears from her eyes.
On the same day, Beyonce, 31, had uploaded a black and white Instagram picture of herself and Kelly posing to mark the former X Factor judge’s big day.
Beyonce sported bunny ears and put two fingers up behind Kelly‘s head in the funny snap.
‘Happy Birthday to my sis Kelly!!’ wrote Beyonce next to the image.
