In the late 90’s, there was no escaping the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child
. What was originally a quartet starring Beyoncé Knowles
, Kelly Rowland
, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett
soon became a trio after LaTavia and Letoya were cut from the group over management issues and then ultimately replaced with Michelle Williams.
Almost fourteen years later, no one could forget the messiness of it all. We caught up with original DC member LaTavia as she embarks on her return into the spotlight with her new gig on TV One’s reality series R&B Divas: Atlanta. In our candid chat, the singer discusses her split with the group, her battle with alcoholism and how she was able to overcome it all, still standing.
