Original Destiny's Child member LeToya Luckett, 25, was at the center of a girl-group scandal when she and LaTavia Roberson were replaced in 2000, and the two went on to sue Beyoncé and company—not once but twice. Now the singer is back with her self-titled solo debut featuring the Top 5 R&B hit "Torn."
HOW WERE YOU FEELING WHEN ALL OF THE DESTINY'S CHILD DRAMA WAS GOING ON? I wanted it to be over. It's truly like going through a divorce. We had been together since we were 10. It was crazy, like a marriage. When you go through a divorce, you are saddened because the relationship is over, but you also know that you have to move on.
DID IT HURT THAT THE GROUP BLEW UP AFTER YOU AND LATAVIA WERE BOOTED? No. It's funny, I just bought the Destiny's Child [Live in Atlanta] tour DVD. That was an exceptional show. I am a big fan. I love their music. I love what they do.
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THEIR BREAKUP LAST YEAR? It was sad. That was something I was a part of. But you know, they are all going to have their solo careers and things are still going to be popping for them. So Destiny's Child isn't going anywhere.
WOULD YOU EVER DO A REUNION TOUR? I would. If that's one of [God's] plans, then so be it, baby. It would be fun.
ARE YOU GOING TO SEE DREAMGIRLS WHEN IT COMES OUT? Of course. I have seen every other Beyoncé movie. I think she is growing as an actress.
