Latavia Roberson is one of the original members of Destiny's Child who was booted from the group in the early 2000's. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Letoya Luckett & Michelle Williams have all shared their stores. Hell even Farrah shared hers and she was only in the group for 2 days. Now Latavia is opening up. 11 year later, she's speaking on the situation, why she was booted from the group, Mathew Knowles managing style and her friendship with the other girls. Check it all out after the break.
The tears fell hard when manager Matthew Knowles, father of bandmate Beyonce, tore into her after a Destiny’s Child show where she had faltered during a dance routine he had drilled into “his” girls.“Where were you tonight, Kelly?” he bawled at her after a gig in Atlanta in 1997. “I watched you mess up 12 dance steps."
LaTavia Roberson, Kelly’s childhood friend and a founder member of the all-girl supergroup, recalls: “Matthew did not mince his words and it can be tough to take that kind of criticism when you are a little girl. We would try not to let it break us.“But Kelly was the sensitive one, and sometimes she would go to her room and cry.”Now 30, Kelly Rowland is queen of all she surveys... singer, dancer, songwriter, model and now X Factor judge. Her debut on British TV has been a triumph as she oozes confidence and class.
