Letoya Luckett has found success both in music and in acting. OG Destiny’s Child fans also know that she was once in the group but left due to a feud with the group’s manager — who just happened to be Queen Bey’s dad.
However, before her breakout as a solo artist people don’t realize how hard it really got for the musician who is pregnant with her second child.
In a recent interview, she revealed some shocking things about herself including having to be homeless for a while.
‘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 went on reveal as she got emotional: ‘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…I can’t believe I’m crying.’
Luckily, things popped off in her music career. She also has become a household name for her role on Greenleaf and her reality show with T.I and Tiny.
