Former Destiny’s Child Member LaTavia Says She’s Not Broke
Former Destiny’s Child member LaTavia Roberson had a rough time after leaving the popular group Destiny’s Child. She suffered through addiction, but managed to kick her bad habits and return to the spotlight. We know what you’re thinking, LaTavia was in DC years ago, why is she still talking about it.
Well if you were Bey’s wing man, would you ever stop talking about it? Nonetheless, LaTavia stopped by “The Wendy Williams Show” to discuss her journey and how she landed on TV One’s “R&B Divas.”
“I definitely did not quit. Who would quit Destiny’s Child? That’s insane.,” she revealed. “Our conflict was strictly with management. It had nothing to do with the other ladies at all. We didn’t have anything against Beyoncé and Kelly [Rowland] at all. At that time, Mathew was our personal manager and he was everybody’s group manager. We disaffirmed him as our personal manager. We wanted to have someone actually to come in and manage along with him. We weren’t trying to fire him as the group’s manager.”
LaTavia also spoke about the substance abuse that controlled her life. “It was in my early 20s. Thank god I didn’t have to live that out in front of the camera. After the group I had a lot of time to myself and I just started living in my head a little bit. And a lot of things from my childhood started to resurface. Specifically I was dealing with the simple fact of being molested and all of that stuff. I had used alcohol to try to self-soothe.”
