LeToya Luckett returned to Atlanta for ‘T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle’ and revealed that the last time she was in the city was back when she was 19-years-old and still a member of Destiny’s Child.
During her chat with Toya Wright, LeToya opened up about being booted from the group.

“Management made a decision,” she explained to Lil Wayne’s ex, 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.”
Still, Luckett, 37, said in a confessional that all the girls are supportive of each other and they are still friends. She reunited with Beyoncé during her “On the Run II” tour stop in Arlington, Texas, last month.
Luckett joined Destiny’s Child in 1993 but was booted in February 2000 ahead of the “Say My Name” music video debut (where Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin replaced her and LaTavia). Franklin later left the group.
‘T.I. and Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle’ premieres on Monday, Oct. 22, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Check out the trailer below!
