LaTavia Roberson On “Wendy” Dishes On Getting The Boot From Destiny’s Child [Video]
Former Destiny Child’s singer LaTavia Roberson stopped by The Wendy Williams Show to dish out on her financial state, dismissal from the group, R&B Divas Atlanta and her struggle from substance abuse.
Check out the highlights from the interview below:
On Destiny’s Child:
“I definitely did not quit. Who would quit Destiny’s Child? That’s insane.
On getting kicked out of Destiny’s Child:
“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.
On if she’s broke (or has money):
I wrote on the albums, publishing. Yes ma’am.
On substance abuse:
“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.”
