On September 11th, Billboard published an interview with former Destiny’s Child singer, LaTavia Roberson. In the interview, Roberson opens up about life since leaving Destiny’s Child and speaks on her upcoming memoir.
When asked what the book will cover, Roberson responds,
“My life, and being transparent about the times nobody saw me after Destiny’s Child. A lot of people were wondering what was going on with me, and I thought that it was fair to let them know exactly what I was going through, and speak about my life in the group. It was something I always wanted to do. To piggyback that, I had been in talks with a production company to start a docuseries based on my book, which I’m very excited to be the Executive Producer of.”
LaTavia Roberson goes on to say,
“It has to be based on people that were a part of my life from the time of when my book started to where I end it. Of course my family. I would definitely reach out to LaToya, Meelah [Williams] from 702, Leanne Lyons and Coko [Gamble] and Taj [Johnson] from SWV. I just ran into Wyclef Jean maybe three or four months ago. You never know. You have to reach out to people and see. A lot of these people weren’t around during the downtime of my life, so I really need people to talk about the grit and ugly part of my life. It has to be authentic: I’m not trying to hide anything from anyone. I have nothing to lose right now.”
This isn’t the first time that LaTavia Roberson will be featuring in a reality television show. Back in 2014, she joined the cast of R&B Divas: Atlanta, where she was heavily criticized for her reluctance to sing. Judging from the interview, she has fully recovered from the backlash and has a new lease of life!
