Also in the house was LeToya’s husband of 6 months, Tommicus Walker. LeToya is best known as one of the original members of Destiny’s Child, along with Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and LaTavia Roberson. None of DC’s original members attended the party.

Gabonese beauty Eudoxie Agnan Bridges, aka Fab, also showed support for her friend, LeToya, at Empire Lounge. Eudoxie and rapper Ludacris have three children.

Keri Hilson

Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson (pictured) recently revealed her long battle with depression that led to her 7-year hiatus from music. “Literally, seven years of my life have been a battle with depression and I can’t say that I’m all the way clear, but I’m in the clear,” the No Boys Allowed singer said at a “Silence the Shame” panel in Atlanta, GA.

“When ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ was at the top of the charts, I was bearing the weight of some personal and professional mistakes and they just weighed so so so heavy on my spirit, and I was just not myself,” she added.

Keri, 35, said she was living her dream until the breakup of an 11-year relationship caused her to hit rock bottom. A series of failed relationships followed that caused her depression to worsen.

“It all just kind of spiraled for me, and became something I had never been through, I had never recognized myself as a person who can’t pick themselves back up. I mean, I was literally on stage crying.”

She continued: “For two and a half years, I went ghost from social media. I don’t need the false love or the unwarranted hate. I don’t want any of it so I just left.”

    Thanks Keri for your story! Depression is never easy! We must learn not to be so hard on ourselves and to take each day as a day to better ourselves and to strengthen ourselves. I have struggled with it for awhile and some days get very hard even tho I’m very fortunate and blessed. I’m praying that my negative thinking lessens and the I remain positive at all times. When u experienced difficult situations, negative thoughts creep in so much easily.

    how long do you wait to date after a 10+ year relationship? assuming this was one of those “we don’t need to get married to prove our love” type tings

  • Kemi

    Keep your head up Keri! The right type of love will find you. Depression sucks. All 3 ladies looked beautiful.

  • Misslaydj

    same here. folks think you can just snap out of it. and its never just one thing. anything can trigger it. if we wait too long to seek help it will consume you.

  • Vonn

    Letoya’s hubby reminds me of a young Chris Webber.

  • Vonn

    Stay ? Lady. ?

  • Noirluv45

    I appreciate Keri’s candidness. So many people, especially in the church, won’t talk about depression or other emotional issues because all they hear is, “Pray about it.” It’s easy for someone to say, “Pray about it” and just walk away leaving the person hurt and broken. I’m not saying that prayer doesn’t work because it does, but sometimes we need more than just prayer such as counseling, therapy, or just opening up with trusted people.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Latoya and her husband look great together… Hope he stick..

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thanks

  • bella28498 .

    Now she is 37?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Anything can trigger it. It’s been cloudy here in ga and I haven’t been doing well. Hell I don’t do well sometimes in sunny weather. Im trying to stay busy with positive things and I took drinking out

  • PhillyFacts

    Just my personal opinion when a woman gets married she should savor all the skin for her husbands eyes only. Too much skin comes across as tacky, loose, and classless. But hey what do I know maybe all the dopamine has wore off in Luda, and Eudoxie’s relationship and she’s craving attention.

  • bemetoo

    Letoya is the least attractive of the 3

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Eudoxie – Not suggesting you break out the Burka, but the married “mother of 3” is puttin’ it out there harder than the newlywed and the single woman.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yes ma’am

  • Quitedeliteful

    All three ladies are very pretty. LaToya and her husband look good together and I’m liking the bling on her ring finger…

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Lol

  • Berry Melon

    Well said.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I love Keri! I hope she comes out with new music soon…

  • Hater

    Keri looks great!

  • YaYa

    She’s giving you that “mommies are sexy too” vibe lol

  • marquise0691

    I really like letoya but “ill take ya man right out the box and put him under my padlocks”

    I want to see her in the set it off stageplay

  • Hater

    Yep, maybe she should switch that hairstyle, its a naw from me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, maybe her husband is OK with her putting her tatas out there for the world to see, but I know I wouldnt be cool with it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Keri call me gal we need to talk got nothing else for this … Everyone looks cute

  • bemetoo

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    They all look beautiful.

  • A D N

    The group picture actually made me smile to see such beautiful women with great hearts. There is one lady, whose spirit is tired and she’s feeling a little worn. Glad to hear “don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful” star is recovering from her depression. I wish her well.

  • A D N

    A lot of commenters on this post understand depression which is good. I too have suffer from depression for many years. I didn’t know what it was for a long time. When more information about depression was available I sought someone professionally just to understand it better. My discovery led to me just needing to talk and someone to listen, plain and simple. I find so many of us do not have outlets because of the hurt, betrayal or lack of having someone to talk to. We experience so many things that life unfairly deals us yet no way to understand why we are dealt those cards. In fact, we may never understand life’s circumstances, but at least we can talk about it. Therapy is good. I as a black woman do not see it as a stigma. Actually, I always talk about counseling especially when I hear some of these stories from people. Everyone needs to just talk, some of us need medication and some of us need to look at what we eat, when we eat and why we eat. God helps…by putting us in touch with what we need for help.

  • Panther Charleston

    Eudox looking a little tired of the nonsense. This pic presents like a message: I still got it too. Big E, Luda already know it. You aint got to show it. But what you gone have to do is decide if you want to keep putting up w what he putting down.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Keri is so pretty! i need those wedges! Hopefully she finds her peace.

  • You Could Never

    Happy birthday LeToya.

    Keri should have gotten her own post. For a few reasons. Not to dismiss her testimony. But this is about Toya’s bday.

    And it’s important enough to warrant it’s own post. Because yes depression is prevalent for us and not touched on nearly enough. IJS

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Right it was like she was like its Latoya bday and oh yea btw Keri is depressed. Depression should never be an after thought.

  • Kayke

    I didn’t know her forehead and head was so big. Everybody has been coming for Rhi but Latoya got a nogging to notice too. Definite new do needed.

  • Coy little wink

    I need them too! She looks fresh ?

  • Coy little wink

    So can we get a medical minute on depression

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thanks!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    U got that right

  • KcoolMuziq

    She is MORE than pretty. She is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!.It’s a curse to be so beautiful.

    The camera LOVED her in “Almost Christmas”..

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Everyone looks cute. Depression is nothing to play with, glad Keri is doing better.

  • the guest

    Latoya Luckett and Keri Hilson need to find one more member and start a singing group. There’s room on the charts.

  • the guest

    I thought the same thing. Too much cleavage for married mom of three.

  • Evillene

    If I recklessly popped off at the mouth and defamed the Queen, I’d be depressed for 7 years too.

  • Harley

    Latoya that nose job is not the business! I always thought she was the prettiest in the group until she did that!

    Keri is such a beauty!

  • the guest

    The dopamine has been worn off. He had a ongoing affair and baby behind her back that she raises so he doesn’t have to pay child support. He did the right thing by marrying her but doesn’t mean he’s passionate. Of course she’s craving attention.

  • Harley

    It’s that nose job she got ?

  • the guest

    Truth.

  • Vonn

    I can see that.

  • My 2 boys

    I appreciate everything you stated. I hope your positive journey in life continues.

  • Miss K

    I have battled for the last two years. Thankful for meds (very low dose) and a great therapist!!

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    Kerri really is pretty

  • Tee Bullock

    Keri is gorgeous and so what she told her truth about that other entertainer, she is not God!!

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    Beyonce sent her demon forces (and not just her stans) to torment her smh

  • Noirluv45

    Wow! Bless your heart. It’s not an easy battle. I’m glad you are doing better, Miss K! Having a great therapist is a blessing!!

  • Tee Bullock

    U aint never lied!!

  • MsPam

    Roses if you live in Austin Texas beware of those explosive packages. The people who have been killed or injured are black or Hispanic

  • ?Royalty?

    The “fake love and unwarranted hate” is so real. And there are sooo many celebrities who in truth, feel the exact same way.

  • Fire & Ice

    Games women have to deal with, when they’re addicted to the lifestyle, and have no real money of their own.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Keri is absolutely stunning…smh@exodus attire

  • Solstice

    I too belong to the mental ill community. I’m a lifer and have been for 18 years. It’s very unfortunate that the black community sweep mental illness under the rug or does not acknowledge it. I am so happy for you that you took the time to get the help via therapy, medication, the Lord and any other treatment options that are you took to get better. Thank you for your post! Much love and be well my sister! ????

  • Miss K

    Thank you!!!!

  • luVn_liFe…

    Beautiful Keri but not that hair honey ? how come she and Letoya and Eudoxie are all of a sudden. Keri and Letoya should do a duo album together and tour. Beyoncé is the only one touring Kelly is a judge on a entertainment competition in Australia. Don’t know what Michell doing

  • V Dubb

    Booooooo

  • kennedy220

    oh god..if keri’s fans would buy her music and go to her shows she’d be just fine…same with letoya and brandy and the rest of them…beyonce has now power to stop fans from buying music and going to shows..if you’re really a music lover you support…

  • kekeb

  • kekeb

    Tour, yes. Joint Album HELL NO! Sorry. LeToya can sing VERY WELL. Keri, “it’s a no for me dawg”. Beyonce took your advice and went and had some babies, came back and YOU STILL CAN’T SING!!!!

  • kekeb

    Right. But at least go get an EPIC VOCAL COACH and songwriter while you’re blacklisted lol. Couldn’t sing then. Can’t now. But I hope she wins tho. I do believe she’s learned her lesson.

  • Sleepy One

    Pushing 40 I’ll own it lol

  • Jenna Okaykaykay

    I love EUDOXIE! I am NIGERIAN and I LOVE how she shows her roots. She is so beautiful! Not only her outer beauty but also within, in her soul. I look forward to seeing her photos, videos, and etc on Instagram. Christopher Bridges is one lucky man. Eudoxie (YES I SPELLED your name right lol!) God bless you honestly. You give back in so many ways, as seen over the years and have a heart of an angel. I pray the industry and evil people don’t take that away from you. As a mother and wife you are goals! You look amazing always. She wears things in a modest way and its still classy. LeToya Luckett, i’m glad God sent you the man that he so desires for you to be with. I can see it in his eyes when he looks at you. Every woman deserves that and its time for “tata” to have kids for Cadence to play with. Keri, I use to see you at a lot of African places with Serge. Sadly and most African people will agree with me but dating an African man is very hard. I am African and struggle myself. No relationship should be forced, and what is meant to be will happen. I pray you break through depression and find inner peace. I love these ladies they are truly positive women living their lives. Blessings to you all <3 .

  • shun king
