Speaking on the syndicated TV show "Extra," Knowles and Rowland said reports of a breakup are overblown.
"We are not breaking up," said Rowland. "We are simply taking a little break from Destiny's Child for a long time."
The group, which also features Michelle Williams, is currently in the midst of a U.S. tour.
"We're not breaking up," said Knowles. "We're growing up."
Knowles also addressed rumors that she and her boyfriend, rapper Jay-Z, are getting married.
"Well, I'll tell you what ... none of them are true," she said.
In any case, she said she believes in keeping her relationships private.
"Just because I love to sing and love to perform does not mean that every part of my life, everyone has a right to know," Beyonce said.
