It's been almost 12 years since LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett were removed from the original line up from one of the most successful groups of all time, Destiny's Child.
Now, in a move that might surprise many, LaTavia has finally spoken up about the situation and exactly why she and LeToya were removed from the group.
In an interview with The Mirror, LaTavia talks about Matthew Knowles being a drill sergeant, Kelly Rowland being extremely sensitive in her teens and how the girls will always be her sisters.
See some of what she had to say after the jump.
"We worked really hard. It was rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. It would be the four of us and he was like a drill sergeant. When summertime came he would start a camp at his house in Houston. He would make us wake up early in the morning and take us to Herman Park. There was a three-and-a-half mile track and we would sing while we jogged around it. Then we would go to the house and rehearse. That’s what our days consisted of, seven days a week. Looking back, working that hard did cost us our childhood. But at the time we were just focused on living out our dreams."
On unfair salaries:
"Beyonce and Kelly had cars. I’m not saying pay cheques were any different, but Matthew used to say a lot of crazy things like, ‘Y’all should be glad I’m giving you money’. We were happy for Matthew to stay on as manager, but we wanted another manager to work with him."
