LeToya Luckett opens up on the details of life right after she exited Destiny's Child. She got emotional talking about having to sleep in a car to get by.


American singer and songwriter, LeToya Luckett had an engaging chat session with her fans on Instagram Live where she shared her journey through life and how she chose to rely on God. 

Luckett told her fans to ensure that they are aligned to God amidst the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. The actress was asked by a young lady how she was able to continue the pursuit of her purpose even after the letdown with Destiny's Child.

In response, Luckett said she had no idea what to do after the disappointment. At the time, she was just a young teenager who was battling insecurities.

The Instagram Live session is not the first time that [Luckett] had talked about her experiences after she was cut from the Destiny's Child group. 


The "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" star also mentioned that she was angry with herself because she thought she couldn't sing well. She explained that she was sleeping in a car at the time and even passing the night around in people's houses.

After she got her first role in the movie "Preacher's Kid," she had to leave the hotel she was staying at. The "Greenleaf" actress did advise the fan to lean on God and develop a relationship with Him. She also said

"You have to be willing to just sometimes take a step back and be okay with being uncomfortable. You have to."


The Instagram Live session is not the first time that the 39-year-old singer had talked about her experiences after she was cut from the Destiny's Child group. 

Back in 2018, Luckett sat down with the pastor of Relentless Church, John Gray where she told him about the financial hardship she had to endure and how the idea of a solo career left her confused and fearful. 


Beyoncé's father, Matthew Knowles, who was also the group's manager at the time, shared his thoughts on what he believed was the cause of the issues in the group.

During an interview, Knowles opened up about a tour that the group took with the Jagged Edge crew. He got a call from Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland accusing the boys of harassing them. He could not have it and had to take decisive actions of putting the boys out of the tour bus to protect his girls, as they were minors.


The manager said it was after then that the whole drama started with Luckett and LaTavia Roberson requesting different management. He believed that they were dating the twins of the Jagged Edge group.

Luckett and Roberson, on the other hand, had a different version of the events that led to the breakup. They felt Knowles was paying more attention to Beyoncé as a way of setting her up for a solo career. They also mentioned that they were not paid equally.

All seems to be forgiven now and the hatchet buried as every member of the Destiny's Child group have all moved on with their lives. 

In 2018, Luckett was pregnant with her first child at the time shared a photo of a reunion with Beyoncé. They were in a warm embrace at Arlington, Texas, where the "Brown Skin Girl" singer and her husband were on tour for "On the Run II."
