LeToya Luckett Shares Why She Was Kicked Out Of Destiny’s Child
Before LeToya Luckett-Walker went on to try her hand at a solo career and release two albums, she was a member of the girl’s group we’ve come to know as Destiny’s Child. Prior to the group becoming Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams; LaTavia Roberson and Luckett-Walker were apart of the group during it’s formative years. Now, almost two decades later, Luckett-Walker is reflecting on why she was released from the group during a recent episode of “T.I. & Tiny’s Friends & Family Hustle.” She explains,
Management made a decision. 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.
After almost 20 years of no communication, the expecting mother was able to link back up with Beyoncé while she was on her “On The Run II” tour. During their stop in Arlington, TX, the pair posed for a photo and got to catch up.
About the moment which was captured,
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.
Aside from Luckett-Walker being a mother to be, she is also pursuing a career as an actress. The singer is currently apart of the cast of OWN’s “Greenleaf.”
