LaTavia Roberson

Former Destiny’s Child singer Latavia Roberson says her “bad divorce” from the 1990s girl group left her battling depression, alcoholism and drug addiction.

LaTavia along with LeToya Luckett were the original background singers for Beyonce Knowles and her play sister Kelly Rowland.

The group started out as classmates who formed a quartet that shot to fame with its second album, 1999’s The Writing’s on the Wall, featuring hits like “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name”.

As the group soared to fame, Beyonce’s ego spiraled out of the control, and the backup singers clashed with group manager Mathew Knowles and his favored singers, Beyonce and Kelly.

LaTavia and LaToya were infamously dumped from the group in 2000, after they tried parting ways with Knowles. They only discovered they had been ousted from the group when the video for “Say My Name” was released, featuring new members Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.

Franklin departed months later, leaving Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle to continue on as a trio, establishing the group as one of the most successful girl bands in pop history. They disbanded in 2006.

In an interview with People magazine to promote her upcoming memoir, I Am LaTavia, she recalls the deep depression that led her to drug and alcohol addictions.

“I never left Destiny’s Child,” she tells PEOPLE. “That is something that people say. But who would leave Destiny’s Child? That’s crazy! I was dismissed from the group.

“It was very difficult because of the way that I found out about it. I hate even talking about it, and it’s been 20 years – but it is what it is. We saw the ‘Say My Name’ video on TV, and that’s how I found out I was no longer in the group.”

She said her inability to cope with the rejection sent her on a downward spiral.

“It was almost like a bad divorce. You’re no longer with your friends, people that you love so much. So that was hard in itself, and then being by myself at that time, when other aspects starting taking a hold of me, it led me into a depression. And it wasn’t pretty…”

She adds, “There are a lot of things that I’ve gone through – molestation, dealing with alcoholism and drugs.”

    Calling your daughter a bitch and a hoe really. Toooo much for even me.

  • Sucker Free

  • imright

  • tintin

  • Akili

    Yikes!! I’m hoping she’s talking about the contractions.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I think she’s referring to her contractions, not her baby. Look at the hash tag in her post.

  • T3

    Prayerfully she’s referring to the contractions. But with The Puerto Rican Princess you just never know.

  • Rayne

    That’s about right. Look who it’s coming from.

  • darealwifey

    Whether she was talking about the baby or the contractions, I ain’t surprised by nothing that comes outta that hood booger ass ninja’s mouth.

  • Buttercup

    I think Jose was name calling the contractions.

  • KB

    I read her tweets and she said it was more than DC that caused depression. She lost a child or something.

    I remember all of this they really did them wrong. Latavia, if u reading this, GOD is still on the throne! He sees everything!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I think she is talking about childbirth in general. If so natural child birth is indeed a real entire whole hoe. If she talking bout the kid then no bueno.

  • Chardonnai

    I have an old work homegirl from the paper. She was there way after I got laid off. Finally 2-3 years after we got our papers…she was finally laid off too. She would get drunk and call and want to chat. She was still so VERY ANGRY about it. She had been there since HS though so yes I can understand. Only job she had ever had. And she was past 45 and was having a horrid time finding a job. Some folks just cant move on as easy. Its so sad Jesus

  • Yoni

    She was on that one DIVA show, right? The one where she would NEVER sing when asked? LOL

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    To who? And don’t say Steevie, because he was coked up.

  • luVn_liFe…

  • That’s Interesting

    Glad she’s doing better. I’ve also seen people unable or unwilling to move on from less. What teen wants all their hopes and dreams dashed???

  • Chardonnai

    And when she did. She sounded like she smoked 12 packs of Newports a day. It was dreadful.

  • Sexy CJ

    Destiny’s Child established themselves as being one of the most successful girl bands in pop history.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    And her and Letoya were supposed to be doing a group called Angel. I never forgot that. And then SHE ditched her too to go solo and do Torn. Latavia got dropped from not just one group. Two.

  • Yoni

    I get it. I wish her the best tho’. She better tell them “they won” and move on.

  • Sexy CJ

(Sorry – 2016 done stole my last bit of empathy… a bish is running on fumes right about now.)

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I saw the pic of the back of her head, too. Still don’t mean that baby came outta Jose’s make believe birth canal. *giggles*

  • Chardonnai

    Yep. I remember that. But LeToya can actually sing. She realized she’d be better off solo. She was right. Tavia needs to get over it at this point.

    I know losing her baby didnt help her mental state none. She needs therapy and prayer. Bless her heart.

    Lmao. Imma poke a hole in your box of wine.

    State Department also kicks out 35 Russian diplomats from its embassy in Washington, consulate in San Francisco.President Barack Obama has imposed sanctions on Russian officials and
    intelligence services in retaliation for Russia’s interference in the
    U.S. presidential election by hacking American political sites and email
    accounts.

    The State Department also has kicked out 35 Russian diplomats from
    its embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco, giving them
    and their families 72 hours to leave the U.S. The diplomats were
    declared persona non grata for acting in a “manner inconsistent with
    their diplomatic status.”

    Obama said Russians will no longer have access to two Russian
    government-owned compounds in the United States, in Maryland and in New
    York.

    Russian officials have denied the Obama administration’s accusation
    that the Russian government was trying to influence the U.S.
    presidential election.

    U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia’s goal was to help
    Donald Trump win — an assessment Trump has dismissed as ridiculous.

  • Keesh5000

    This right here had me rolling this morning as I was getting ready for work. Its not right and I dont know why…..but I know its not right

  • CaliVirgo

    Congrats to Serena

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Told them they sure can buyout my lil 7 almost 8 years. 2 weeks pay for every year you was there and then all of your unused sick and vacation and we got A LOT bc it all went down in Jan. I had 4 weeks of vacation and a week of sick. The REAL gag was i was in school at the time an was able to immed. get my unemployment. Normally they make you wait until your severance runs out.
    And the folks when SHE got laid off aint get that. they got ONE week for every week. And got showed DA DOE

  • Chardonnai

    She said if you want to know about Beyonce ask her. But Tavia gots to realize no one care about her life. As sad as it is, she always be known as one the rejects that got kicked out of DC. It is what its.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Exactly. I’m at a loss. Never released his taxes, in fact said he ain’t paying a dayum thing, we’re learning that Russia did hack something n get him elected, and now alt right sprites is big bad n bold w they we better than you go back to Africa mess. I’m venting but on the legal side of things, trump been a fraudulent business man, why do ppl think he’d be trustworthy as a leader?????????????

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Bye Yo!

  • luVn_liFe…

    Is this for real or FAKE news???

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Bad is gone. Man never came back and Sandra kicked DTTS out for no good reason.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    DTTS got banned 3-4 weeks ago.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Im not giving Don King NOTHING. Convo so certaintly no sex

  • Chardonnai

    What she do or say?

  • MissHarlem

    Not a fair comment because she wasn’t shading etc. She was doing an interview talked about a lot of interesting things and others blogs, media etc made it about DC. I would be pissed too

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Fukk Donald Trump.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    People Magazine.
    I’m assuming it’s real.

    lolol!

  • Chardonnai

    I’ve been said Sprites will destroy this country before let us take it over. They will burn this bish down and move to Mars first.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Second time this month! Last week it was Bibi Netanyahu and his b.s., this week it’s Putin’s turn. trump better be careful, President Obama might still get his azz before he leaves.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    What I don’t get is so did a lot of us!!!! Wtf warranted her being banned?? That’s not cool at all. She’s been on here since as long as I can remember before I gained access thru Daquan.

  • Just saying

    Yea right! I don’t believe it! I know she drinks sprite delights but engaged? Or is this a poke at Drake for sleeping with Jlo??

  • Just saying

    Kelly was super cute back then.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    None, but still..lmao

  • cherrypie

    Dang, you breaking news faster than the blogger is. Lol. Little pink dack forever…nahhhhh

  • Annaunki

    Gotdammit Don’t do it serena

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Sis…you already!!!!! I had that talk w my mother. Sad to hear her, a woman who been thru the civil rights movement and still seeing this mess…say, “but what makes them think that just because their skin is lighter, that they own the world and everything in it???”

  • Chardonnai

    I’m disappointed. She’s better off with Drake.

  • klwbaby

    Don King should have a translator with him….

  • Desiree Edwards

    Must be a slow news day….

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    So true.
    The Problem is, Trump, can come into office next month, simply undo what Obama just did, and have all those diplomats welcomed back in.

  • Keesh5000

    I know, I feel bad when I use the word coon too because you never really know what people grew up around believing in, seeing or being use to…… but this is a coon azz if Ive ever seen one… It get a “L”

  • Shira Harding-James

    Hmmm interesting I think you’re on to something here

  • Just saying

    72 hours is not enough time to pack up your family and everything in those lovely high dollar mansion homes! Most of these “types” have 3 to 4 kids too!

  • Keesh5000

    I hattteeechhhuuuuuuuuuuuuu…..Giggles and walks away

  • Shira Harding-James

    I knew she was into white men ever since I saw her attempting to twerk in that Beyoncé video

  • felinelurker

    That’s my concern

  • Brown fields

    She’s leaving out the part about how she and Latoya tried to hire their own managers after mr. Knowles had put all that work in. he decided to let them go because he didn’t need the hassle. He said himself in an interview that nobody came around when they were struggling trying to make it soon as they became successful here come the family in their ear…….IJS

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Just saw this lol

  • Mystery User

    Wasn’t she recently pregnant?

  • felinelurker

    Umm, I’m sure they’ll have hired help…

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    CNN reported

  • Chardonnai

    Obama say that sound like a P &P. A personal problem.

  • Keesh5000

    Im still trying to figure out who dat man is in dat pic

  • Keesh5000

    THank you. I was going to but since your going to help pay her car note on her 1996 Honda Civic I will keep my coins. Thanks boo

  • iWasteTime

    Reddit founder?!?!
    She gonna phuck around and look like Billionaire EVE

  • Mystery User

    Agreed – and they won’t even take everything. Sounds like it’s about to be popping real soon. Obama has put on his petty Coogi sweater and petty gator boots. Starting some mess for his runner up to clean up POST POSITION! I love it!

  • Keesh5000

    Shyt NO, Bey aint even trying to do a tour with Kelly and Michelle……let alone the other 2. Somebody get off note..Bey gonna lose it

  • Keesh5000

    Beyonce spared Michelle because she is a Church girl with a good heart. Told yall Beyonce cool as a fan man

  • Incog-knee-gress

    They will be okay

  • Keesh5000

    Yeap..

  • Leigh Burton

    She lost the baby!

  • Keesh5000

    I remember this. Latavia plays the victim but Toya dont. That other girl Farrah or whatever still real frosty about the situation. I saw a interview with her saying some stuff but she cant sang either

  • Keesh5000

    She was… I have always thought she was and is a beautiful girl

  • Keesh5000

    Exactly! Hillary said on the 3rd election that they were meddling in our Election process and I believed her..crooked and all

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Im not sure how true this is either. Bc one of them and I wanna say it was again Latavia said how her mom was kicked off the tour bus. Mathew tried to isolate these girls from their fam was always my take. Just bc Kelly mama let you take your little love child home dont mean the other folks were good with that.

  • Keesh5000

    Exactly what I said. A bunch of mess went on with this election and WHY??? Trump dont really wanna be the Prez. He just wanted to win. Why cant anybody see that. Being the Prez of the US is a JOB….a hard one from what I hear

  • Keesh5000

  • samuel severino

    Just a cover. She would have been Drake’s beard and she didn’t want that.
    Same reason why Ri and Nicki keep curving him even though he always “professes his love” for them. They want real penis on the regular instead of being his beard for the public.

  • samuel severino

    It is just an arrangement. He gets linked to another female to quell the rumors and she gets to stay relevant as a sex symbol instead of coming off as “try hard” like Madonna and Mariah.

  • Keesh5000

    At one point I thought she was and was very sick, near death with the baby. I also thought she had a hard time with the first baby and he is Autistic…. I think, not sure. KeKe Wyatt had my attention on ATL Divas.. sorry

  • samuel severino

    CNN is fake news so don’t count on them to be reliable and most of their “news anchors” are CIA agents all installed to control and propagandize us.

  • CaliVirgo

    I said this below Sandy funny talking about play sister?

  • nucynu25

    Yoni , Harlem & SameolJ didnt i tell yall tree that Rena was going to end up with a cave demon…

  • Keesh5000

    Right, I do remember hearing it was a problem with Matthew being over controlling and wanting the girls to always be together. Even though its not right but if your trying to accomplish what he did with that group its necessary. Dance teams for lil girls try to form a bond so tight with the girls and let them be together outside of practice even more. If its just going to the movies, sleep overs, etc… because when they perform they look better. You can tell when a team or group perform what relationship they have behind closed doors. Shows in the performance

  • MissHarlem

    Yes ? but I ok’d it so she’s good lol

  • Keesh5000

    I do truly believe Kelly his daughter by another Woman and Tina accepted it…Giggling..Sike, nawl frfr

  • ?Time2Shine?

    After Matthew did his own wife and family like that, you actually believe he had anyone’s best interest at heart, besides Beyonce and Kelly (by default)?

  • Keesh5000

    awww

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    It’s only Treason if he did the hacking but it doesn’t matter. Eric Snowden has been accused of treason too for simply telling us that the government was spying on us without our permission. Northern states were accused of treason for wanting to abolish slavery… etc. Everything is treason until it isn’t….

  • Cici

    I had a chance to meet her on set, and she was very sweet, and humble. I pray God helps her to get through her trials as she has had a hard life. She is also very blessed and I hope she can push though, and start to focus on the good that has also happened to her. Sometimes things that don’t turn out the way we want are blessings in disguise. There’s ALOT that comes with fame, and maybe God knew it wasn’t for her. Peace and blessings to her and her family.

  • samuel severino

    That is funny, you assuming it is real just because it is People magazine. People is nothing more than a huge ad mag for the industry.
    The studio paid $2,000,000 to get The Rock on the cover as The Sexiest Man. Just like every other person with that title in recent years bribed heavily or paid dearly to get on the cover. Usually it is part of the advertising budget for a movie.

  • Keesh5000

    They couldnt stand his azz either.. But Beyonce cant help who her Father is and even though it may have been rough. He is partly responsible for the hard working artist she is today. I think thats why she is trying to raise Blue different

  • Incog-knee-gress

    the writing was on the wall. All she has dated for a minute. Aubrey dont count. Or maybe his white side does..IDK

  • Incog-knee-gress

    She is another one who is woke, but likes what she likes.

  • CaliVirgo

    New posts?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    The engagement. Didnt know she was even dating anybody recently.

  • MissHarlem

    That’s the impression I get which is why I can ok it lol

  • nucynu25

    I go by the one drop rule lmao .. my baby blk , his mom just happens to be white .

  • OvertheMississippi

    ????

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    trump never expected to be president but given the opportunity he had no choice but to accept. He knows he is not qualified but he also knows he can’t get out of it because he has made a deal with the devil. (Putin)

  • hottlanta

    Spying on us really. I remember back in the day if we were talking on the old rotary dial phone our parents would tell us to be careful of what we say because the government could be listening especially if it was a lot of static on the phone. Our SS# was never meant to be our standard form of identification until it was time for us to get our money. Someone came up with the brilliant ideal to have it as our national ID# to put it in a database to keep track of everything we do. That is why we get a lot of junk mail because they sell our information to market brokers. Eric wasted his time to tell us something we already knew and if he comes within so many feet within the US he is going to jail. I could have told him that we already knew they were spying on us and saved him the trouble. DUH!!!!!! Google map will show your address and street and also your neighbors and families names.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    True! I will definitely give him his props for the sacrifice he made to get them out there. But he threw it all away, just for holes. He had not 1 but 2 kids on his wife. Wtf? He would dog anyone out, if he would do thst to his own family.

  • nucynu25

    LMAO

  • Incog-knee-gress
  • hottlanta

    Barack putting that azz out in the cold of winter. That’s cold.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    It is. But dont act like they aint have a mama, dad, fam who loved them. He always never sat right with me. He did that interview and tried to make it seem like well yall aint been coming around…nig you TOOK EM. Wtf you expect for them to go away and forget about their little girls forEVA?

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I have always wondered why her real father never came forward or was even seen EVAH. Matthew Knowles just may be it.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    It’s deeper than that. But the fact you and many others like you are OK with the government having visual and auditory devices in our homes is disturbing…

  • IChosetheBrownDollbaby

    Because everyone is different and heals as such?

  • hottlanta

    On Wednesday, the president-elect touted announcements from two companies that plan to hire workers in the U.S. as evidence that confidence in the domestic markets is booming as he prepares to take office.

    However, critics have pointed out that the Trump Organization has repeatedly hired foreign employees in the U.S.

    A report earlier this month said Trump Winery in Virginia is seeking permission to hire more foreign workers.

    The Department of Labor petitioned for the winery to bring in six foreign workers using the federal government’s temporary work visa program know as H-2.

    That reported followed another in early December that said Trump will hire foreign workers to staff his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., this winter.

  • hottlanta

    Betta get off your computer, throw it out the window and move to the woods. Don’t take your cellphone. Because if you get lost they can track it with the GPS device to rescue you. Then you would appreciate the government tracking your every move because you need them to rescue you out of the woods. Can’t have it both ways.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    This is not a either or decision. I don’t want the government spying on me without a warrant. If I go into the woods, I’ll make sure to make other arrangements should I need emergency assistance. Maybe you should change your username to your legal name since you have no need for privacy.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    If I’m not mistaken I do believe that his wife came into this country on a H-2 visa also. Lol. The bottom line is trump is full of it and he has played his supporters.

  • Mystery User

    Oh no! She was pretty big/far along, was she not?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    You are soooo right about that, things not turning out the way we want are blessings in disguise. I know this to be true, first hand. I went through some tough times for almost a full year (still had my job though, thank GOD) but I got my blessings in the end and I’m still receiving blessings. Too much to type, but it made me realize I’m a lot stronger than I gave myself credit for and God never left my side. Too many times people focus on the negative, can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, lose faith, lose patience waiting for things to get better. Things aren’t going to get better over night. Could be days, weeks, months, years.. Everyone’s story/journey is different.

  • Cici

    Yes it can be challenging, and focusing on the positive may help one find a solution. I understand some people handle things differently than others, and if she is dealing with depression there are spirits that are messing with her mind making it hard for her to see the good. That’s why she seems to be stuck; it’s crazy. Anyhoo I’m glad to hear you made it through to your blessings, and thanks for sharing.

  • OhPettyOne

    Dang that was funnyyy!!!

  • OhPettyOne

    She did. Bey looked and Michelle like, “Getchoassup”

  • OhPettyOne

    Oh yep some states do make you wait. What state did that?

  • FlorenceJohnston

    Thank you!!!!

  • Jamie Jay

    She needs to move on. She could have came out with a new hustle because eyes were still on all of them after the whole fiasco and she was still getting paid. She still gets money when their songs play. She just stuck in the past, I always thought she was dead weight because she never sang. Somebody needs to pull her to the side and tell her to find a new hustle, she needs to go on Fix My Life with Iyanla Vazant because she’s gonna tell her to breath and let it gooooo

  • KEKE

    Beyonce and Kelly had a different contract than the other two so things were never fair and to be young seeing your childhood friends go on to be successful is hard to deal with and embarrassing. Hopefully she’s found happiness.

  • GuestSTAR

    “President Obama might still get his azz before he leaves”…….Gawd, I hope so.

  • SJ

    I don’t think she’s stuck in the past. She’s telling her story as she has every right to and just like plenty of people do, whether in song, film, interviews, books, etc.

    She stated that she talked to PEOPLE about her new ventures (i.e. authorship), but they chose to spotlight her departure from the group.

  • Valerie D. Henderson

    If it’s been 20 years since she was booted, did she go to college to earn a degree. She could’ve pursued a law degree and came back to sue they a$$…

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    It’s always a possibility. trump was tweeting a lot of junk the other night and after a phone call from President Obama he calmed down.

  • Imma?????

    There was an article about him reaching out or something.

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    She should’ve took notes from Latoya. ?

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    The last thing she needs is Iyanla. She couldn’t help Ronnie from the strip club and just exploited Lira Galore’s daddy. But I agree, she needs to move on, especially if songwriting was her strength in DC.

  • White Newborn

    That been damn near 16 years ago, this hoe better find Jesus

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Oh okay. I’ve never heard that. I just thought her father was d?ad or either didn’t want to be bothered. What happened when he reached out to her?

  • Lovelove

    Iyanna is a loud, obnoxious, shucking and jivin’ joke.

  • samuel severino

    Matthew IS her father. That has been admitted repeatedly.
    Besides she looks more like him than Beyoncé does

  • ?Time2Shine?

    What???? Where in the heck have I been..I honestly thought that was a rumor. I know they have always called each other sisters but I thought it was because they grew up together.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    What???? Where in the heck have I been..I honestly thought that was a rumor. I know they have always called each other sisters but I thought it was because they grew up together.

  • guest

    Rumor had it her and Latoya was more focused on their JAGGED EDGE boyfriends at the time.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Now that Matthew is no longer the manager they are all free to speak. She won’t say much about Beyonce but she was mad for a very long time. Especially she and Beyonce started the group.

    It has been said that Beyonce was preggo at that time. When you look at some pics she wasn’t showing much of her tummy and did look older than the others. The more I see old pictures of Beyonce, the more I believe the rumors. Good for her as she still can perform

  • thaye

    Um……why does she have to be a hoe sprite newborn?!

  • thaye

    Really, lol…..so the manager gets to find new talent when the talent should decide who manages them? Place yourself in her shoes, then try again with this statement….smh

    I’m not sure she replied, I think she was on a radio show or something and mentioned it but; I do not remember. Someone else posted the story I think.

    You must be pissed off this New Year’s Eve Eve I’m entitled to make whatever statement I would like that’s what this internet is for you try to have yourself a good New Year shake my damn head…….IJS

  • Brown fields

    I really don’t give a f*** I was just responding to the article not trying to get ganged up on stating the facts what I know……… no I don’t like how he did his family but he’s paying for it trust me

  • Rain

    In the article someone posted she said she wanted to re-connect with him but, was in no hurry. He had been out of her life for 20+ years…she looks more like her Mom than she does him.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Who’s ganging up on you? I actually don’t hove a fvck either because he’s not my father. And it’s obvious that he’s paying for it now.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Wow! I wonder why he hasn’t been around all this time. That’s messed up. Anyway, she has been blessed ten times over, without him, so I’m sure he has regrets.

  • thaye

    Actually no….I’m healthy, happy, and in love! Life is great?? Thank you for the new year wishes….hope you have an excellent 2017!!!!!!!

  • kennedy220

    right…i mean letoya put out a couple of albums and has a new single out. but i wasnt there so maybe the demons did get her down in the dumps…wouldnt have stopped me ..especially when there was still a buzz going on around them..but wait she and letoya did form a girl group and that failed. i would have move right on to acting or writing

  • Wayup!

    But I think Matthew had a injunction against her and Latoya..cause Latoya didn’t blow up until a few years AFTER the group was world wide….

  • Wayup!

    I want her to tell the REAL truth and be done with this…she just had a baby …she need to do this soul searching for her child and be done…

  • Wayup!

    Good observation..she might a died out here behind that group..I mean look what it did to Michelle/Farrah!!!!

    Her baby died….

  • shutupforever

    it’s very sad to hear how these young artists get played out by industry. i believe that was really painful for her, especially since she probably saw herself growing with the people around her. that rejection would have hurt anyone’s pride. glad to see her out of that and hope she starts a new chapter. #pray4youngartistintheindustry

  • Genia W-m

    Anybody could see what Matthew Knowles did. He wanted a famous girl group so he could make his daughter into a solo artist and that’s exactly what happened. He treated Michelle and Kelly horribly as a manager too. Wished the girls had started with someone different and ethical. The issues that came out in court about Matthew made me wonder why Tina stayed with him so long but when he got someone pregnant she finally decided to leave!

  • Genia W-m

    Youth causes people to focus on the wrong things. I think once she matured she realized it was Matthew’s deceit. Beyoncé was too young to have anything to do with that. Bey’s parents even let her quit school too. Sounds like some entertainment decision out of the 50s.

  • Genia W-m

    That’s her story to tell. Just like Mary Wilson wrote a book about what happened in the Supremes.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I hate to say it but get over it gurl. Although I understand how heart breaking that would have been. I wonder if Beyonce had the decency to apologise
