Latavia Roberson shot to prominence as part of the original line-up of Destiny’s Child – voicing hits such as ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Bills, Bills, Bills.’
Now, she’s exploring other corners of her destiny. Because, she’s just announced that she’s venturing into the business of boxing.
Uniquely, she paired the revelation with news that she recently welcomed a baby boy – who joins big sister Lyric.
Full story below…
Taking to Instagram, moments ago, she shared the pic below with the caption touting her new venture:
“Hey Lovers, I’m back with my business partner @alfredadams_ and I would like to thank you all for being patient w/ me. This Destiny will be bringing me 2 a city near you soon…., So keep peeing in 4 updates. I’ll be there with my new sidekick!!!!! And remember…… I Love You All”
As for the boxing gig, it appears she’ll be managing training spots and the fighters themselves.
Speaking in the official press release read:
“My business partner Alfred Adams called me about this. I used to sit at home and watch boxing with my father and Grandmother. I love the sport, and I am excited to be involved in it.
It made sense for me because I have always been a fighter myself. Maybe not in the ring, but in life. I want to represent people who want to fight, and have those same kinds of qualities.
When the idea came to mind, I wanted to make sure we would put the very best people in place to give the fighters the best management team possible.”
Roberson, who has two boxing training locations one in San Antonio, continued….
“I want to be a mother-figure to my boxers. I have a great team in place led by Alfred, and I want to nurture these athletes. I don’t want anyone to screw them over. I have learned that when you are poorly managed, the results won’t be up to par, and I want to make sure our fighters get the utmost care.”
“I want to be a household name in the boxing world, and I want to manage world class and world champion fighters. I feel with the infrastructure that we have in place, that will become a reality in the very near future.”
Interesting! Congratulations all around.
