DESTINY CHILD's planned comeback has been postponed after Beyonce Knowles badly injured her leg during rehearsals.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer was rehearsing with band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams when she tore her right hamstring while practising in Los Angeles for an upcoming TV special.

COLUMBIA RECORDS spokesperson YVETTE NOEL-SCHURE says, "We're all keeping our fingers crossed that, because she's young and healthy, it heals fast.

"There are a lot of things in place that we may have to shift. Not the album (DESTINY FULFILLED), which is finished, but appearances.

"We'll know more after a week."

This is the star's second injury in just six weeks - after her bodyguard broke her toe by treading on her foot.
