Jim Smeal/WireImageIt’s been nearly two decades since LeToya Luckett was let go from Destiny’s Child. And in an advance clip from an upcoming episode of T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle, Luckett says even though it “hurt,” she has no hard feelings.
“Management made a decision,” she explained to T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle co-star Toya Wright. “There was nothing at the time that I could do about it. Did it hurt? Absolutely. Because we were friends. I went to school with these girls.”
She continues, “Beyoncé and LaTavia [Roberson] had been in the group the longest. Then LaTavia went to school. Met Kelly [Rowland]. And then Beyoncé showed up at my school one day as the new beautiful girl with this new beautiful voice. It was just so cool to experience something like that at such a young age. But that decision was made…we were sisters.”
However, the Greenleaf star has officially put the past behind her — she reunited with Bey last month during her On The Run II tour stop in Arlington, Texas.
“That was such an awesome moment. There was so much joy in that room,” Luckett tells Essence, revealing that Bey even gave her some parenting advice for her the upcoming birth of her child.
“She went into straight mommy mode as far like ‘Oh my god. What’s she doing? Is she doing this, is she doing that?,” Luckett says. “And I was showing them my sonogram pictures and everything. She was just so excited. We’re both very, very happy, and you could feel the love in the room. There wasn’t a lot of people in the room. It felt like it was just us, chatting it up.”
T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle premieres on Monday, October 22, at 9 p.m. ET.
