LeToya Luckett On Slim Thug, Rob Hill & Destiny’s Child Biopic
For quite some time fans were wondering when the R&B diva, LeToya Luckett, would return to the music scene and release some more soulful tracks. After the departure from Destiny’s Child, the God-fearing singer went on to pursue a successful music and acting career, as she continues to make appearances on the big screen.
Over the years, Luckett, who took time off from recording music, remained in the limelight because of her love life, leading to an engagement with Rob Hill.
But things didn’t go as planned for the couple in which the engagement was called off. She says,
I can’t really speak on it like that. I think that anytime you open up, allow yourself to love, and love hard, that’s the risk you take of [it] possibly not working out. And although we really did love and care for each other, it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to. I wish him the best, it sucks because I’m as real as it gets, I’m a real person… But ya know, heartbreak happens.
With her new album dropping this Friday, the former DC member entertained the idea of a Destiny’s Child biopic, talked about her ex Slim Thug, heartbreak in relationships, and her new acting role in the TV series Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Biggie. Check out a few excerpts.
Her advice on relationships:
If any relationship ain’t inspiring you, or helping you to grow, making you feel fulfilled, Run…
What’s her ‘breakup playlist’:
Any Mary [J Blidge], Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton, hell, my single Back to Life . I have this record called Disconnected that is one of my favorites off the album. I was vulnerable at the moment.
On past relationship with Slim Thug:
He’s from my hometown. We were back in forth for ten years, he’s like family to me. Even still, our families are very close… we will speak, I wish him the best. It ain’t work out in that way. We were able to relate in some ways.
On relationship with Destiny’s Child, and potential biopic:
Absolutely [speaking terms with all members], all of them. People wanna hate. The ladies of DC – we have all done our own thing. Every time we see each other, it’s a genuine moment. We wish the best for each other. It would be interesting. For me, honestly, for me to feel okay with it, I think the girls, we would have to do it. We would have to get together, come together, share our stories, decide what we want to talk about.
On research and acting role as Suge Knight’s estranged wife in USA’s new series:
It was kind of tough because she wasn’t out there like that. It’s been cool getting to know her, until I got this role, I didn’t know he was married. This should be cool. She was about her business; she was probably the only one that wasn’t afraid of him; she seemed like a real person.
