Yesterday saw ‘From Above‘ mastermind Mathew Knowles wow fans with news of a ‘Destiny’s Child’ reunion.
Announcing the release of two re-packaged LPs by the trio this November, his news sparked questions surrounding the trio’s status as an ‘actual group‘, considering their successes as respective solo artists.
Solo artists, who have risen to become just as groundbreaking as the group they once soared in collectively.
For all the parallells to The Surpremes, the story of Destiny’s Child seems to boast a “happy ending”.
Case, point, these snaps of former members LeToya Luckett, LaTavia Roberson, and Michelle Williams from last night.
As many will remember, Luckett and Roberson served as original members of the iconic group until a management spat saw them forcibly removed in 2000. Williams and short-term member Farrah Franklin would go on to become their replacements – controversially making their debut in the ‘Say My Name’ video.
However, accompanied by Cosby Show actress Keisha Knight-Pullium, the trio were all smiles as they caught up – and in LaTavia and Michelle’s case, met for the first time.
As earlier reported, ex-Destiny’s Child singer LaTavia Roberson is breaking her silence.
It’s been 12 years since Roberson and LeToya Luckett were sensationally ousted from the Multi-Platinum outfit. And it’s been just as long since she’s publicly talked about the situation – in detail.
That all changed when the 30 year old spoke to our friends over at Kempire Radio.
The candid chat saw no topic off-limits. Indeed, addressed were her true thoughts on the band’s former manager Mathew Knowles, her current relationship with Beyonce, her personal demons, what she’s been up to since the break-up, and much much more.
Not just an insightful listen. It’s an essential listen!
After a tumultuous journey, former Destiny’s Child star LaTavia Roberson is bouncing back.
We hear the 30 year old is readying a book for next year; hence, so as to get her name and face back in the fray, she posed it up for photographer Corey S. Guevarra in what looks to be a stunning new shoot.
To our surprise here at That Grape Juice, much ado was made about former Destiny’s Child star Latavia Roberson‘s recent re-surfacing. Indeed, a select few have taken aim with her for sharing of the true depths of her story some 11 years after being booted from the group.
With so much He Say/She Say still swirling, yours truly believes it apt to present perhaps the most fair, balanced and well-rounded account of what really went down. Hence, substituting our From The Vault clip this week, will be E!’s 2006 short documentary ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ – which sees first-hand accounts from Latavia, LeToya, and even Farrah Franklin, about their stints in Destiny’s Child. The piece also features sound-bites from Mathew Knowles and other industry figures on the drama that just won’t go away.
Former Destiny’s Child member LaTavia appeared on Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ recently. The struggling artist spoke in detail about how she was ousted from the top-selling group and the problems with alcohol that she developed as a result. Look below for all the action:
