LaTavia Roberson is tired of people trying to pit her against her former Destiny’s Child members.
It’s unclear what happened that spurred this feeling, but the 36-year-old hit Twitter on Monday to tell people that she can be genuinely be happy for all they have going on. There are no hard feelings, no jealousy, nor any ill will. Just like everyone else, she’s happy to see them shine.
“How come I’m always attacked if I like or comment on a post featuring Beyonce, Kelly, Toya or Michelle?” she asked. “If I like I’m going to double tap or comment whichever one is best! Stop painting this picture of me as the bitter one!!!”
This isn’t the first time LaTavia has tried to make it clear to people that despite her unexpected exit from Destiny’s Child (she and LeToya reportedly found out that they were replaced when the “Say My Name” video dropped) and early regrets, she has moved on.
“Maybe when I was younger I may have thought ‘Oh my gosh, could I have changed anything?’ But now that I’m older and now that I have my daughter, I think back and I say, no matter how hard things have been for me over the past 10 years and me coming out and me feeling like I have victory, I think that I was supposed to go through those things for a reason,” she said in 2014. “As hard as it was, I have to say I wouldn’t change anything.”
“One of the biggest misconceptions that I think people have about me is that I’m bitter about what happened with Destiny’s Child—and even that I’m bitter towards Mathew—it’s not that. It was business, totally,” she added. “I would never trade anything in my life for my experience and my time with Destiny’s Child… ever, ever, ever in my life.”
