R&B singer Letoya Luckett is spilling tea on alleged dirty business practices of Beyonce and her former manager (and father) Mathew Knowles, MTO News has learned.
According to LeToya, when Beyonce kicked her out of Destiny’s Child, she was left “homeless” and had nothing to consume but water and Oodles of Noodles.
Letoya Luckett was dismissed from the group, and filed a lawsuit against the group. Her and Beyonce’s team had a long and bitter legal battle after she was let go, and eventually Beyonce’s team settled with Letoya, paying her an undisclosed amount of money.
Letoya broke it down on a new Instagram Live. She explained:
“I’m not gonna lie to you, after DC I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was about 18-years-old, I hadn’t live as a normal teenager, I hadn’t gone to college. Even coming out of that, I wasn’t the most secure person because I was so used to having a ‘team’ mentality to think of going out on my own was terrifying. The thought of singing made me angry. I didn’t believe I had a voice, I didn’t believe I could sing, I didn’t believe I could return to the music industry. Make a long story short, after surrendering and getting to know God on a whole ‘nother level…I learned to surrender, get out of my own way, stop living in fear and allow him to direct my path.”
She had more – and low key threw shade at the Queen:
During my journey I was staying at people’s house, I never told these stories before…I slept in a car in L.A. while I was making my first album. Not a lot of nights, but you know what I’m saying? I was drinking a gallon of water and buying the microwavable oodles of noodles [starts to weep]…I can’t believe I’m crying.”
LeToya was most recently in the news, after her husband was accused of cheating on her.
