LeToya Luckett Details The Moment She Was Fired From Destiny’s Child: “Management Made A Decision”
It’s been almost two decades since the two parted ways after LeToya was fired from DC, and now the mom-to-be is speaking out about her thoughts and feelings after she split from the Grammy-winning group.
“Management made a decision,” she explained to ‘T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle’ castmate, Toya Wright.
“There was nothing at the time that I could do about it. Did it hurt? Absolutely. Because we were friends. I went to school with these girls.”
“Beyoncé and LaTavia [Roberson] had been in the group the longest. Then LaTavia went to school. Met Kelly [Rowland]. And then Beyoncé showed up at my school one day as the new beautiful girl with this new beautiful voice. It was just so cool to experience something like that at such a young age. But that decision was made … we were sisters.”
Clearly, even despite the split, that sisterhood between the two has stayed strong. LeToya recently revealed Bey gave her some parenting advice when they met up backstage at her concert.
“That was such an awesome moment. There was so much joy in that room. She was … she went into straight mommy mode as far like “Oh my god. What’s she doing? Is she doing this, is she doing that? And I was showing them my sonogram pictures and everything. She was just so excited. We’re both very, very happy, and you could feel the love in the room. There wasn’t a lot of people in the room. It felt like it was just us, chatting it up.”
It’s heartwarming to see the connection with these women maintain strong from childhood to motherhood.
