LaTavia Roberson, formerly of Destiny’s Child, sat down with Wendy Williams to promote R&B Divas and talk about her girl group past.
You know Wendy asked all the right questions. Check out some highlights:
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. *snaps*”
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.”
We’re glad to see LaTavia doing well for herself (and we can’t believe she was ‘strung out’ at one point).

The current season of R&B Divas is airing on TvOne, Wednesdays at 10/9C.
