A Former Destiny's Child Member Has This To Say About Who Can Out Sing Beyoncé From the Group
LaTavia Roberson, an original member of Destiny's Child, shut down a fan that suggested she "outsang" her former bandmate Beyonce. 

The singer was giving props to feminist advocate Amber Rose for her 'bottomless' Instagram photo that definitely had people talking! 

LaTavia showed her support for Rose's campaign, writing, "Keep making em mad, girl!"

One of Roberson’s apparently misunderstood the message, believing it was a jab at Beyonce. 

LaTavia's follower wrote, "Yass queens supporting queens. LaTavia I love you and you outsang Beyonce.”

Roberson wanted to shut that down quickly, posting a GIF of Nicki Minaj with the caption, "Nobody outsang Beyonce."

Roberson was an original member of Destiny’s Child, along with Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and LeToya Luckett. The group found success with their self-titled album in 1997 but really broke out in 1999 with The Writing’s on the Wall, which featured the hit singles “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Jumpin’, Jumpin'” and “Say My Name.”

However in 2000, Roberson learned she and LeToya Luckett were being replaced.

LaTavia set the record straight previously on her exit from the girl group. She said, "I never left Destiny’s Child. That is something that people say. But who would leave Destiny’s Child? That’s crazy! I was dismissed from the group."

She continued, "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.”
Roberson and Luckett were not shown in the video and were replaced by newcomers Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin. 

LaTavia made it clear that she has no bad blood with Beyonce or the other girls, strictly with the management. Of course we all know that was Beyonce's father, Mathew Knowles.

“It was very difficult. I’m pretty sure that it was difficult for all of us — because we were young,” Roberson explained. “My issue was always with the management; it was never with the girls.”

Roberson is still a big fan of Beyonce's music, as well as her sister Solange's work. LaTavia said, "Everybody has their lives, but I know as far as me being an original member with the girls that I started with? I support all of their careers, and their music’s been guiding me through a lot. It’s been wonderful."

LaTavia adds, "I believe that nothing in life has happened in vain. I believe that things happen for a reason, and there’s nothing but love on my end.”
