Former Destiny’s Child star LaTavia Roberson fell head first into an awkward moment last night after a tweet from her account left people wondering who she is.
The 34-year-old Texan – who was one of the band’s original members – used Twitter to thank fans on behalf of herself, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and LeToya Luckett for their support, but was quickly met with questions surrounding her identity.
The actress wrote: “I just wanna say from Myself @KELLYROWLAND @Beyonce @LeToyaLuckett & @RealMichelleW we have the best fans individually and collectively WE [heart] U.”
After the message got fans wondering what LaTavia’s role in Destiny’s Child actually was, the mother jumped on the defensive.
Responding to a tweet asking her who she is, the singer wrote: “LaTavia Marie Roberson founding member of the ICONIC girl group Destiny’s Child.”
When another site user criticised her for staying in the band for “5 minutes”, LaTavia fired back: “Naw I was in there long enough to get to 2 Grammys.”
And when branded as the “queen of not singing leads”, the star bragged about receiving royalties on DC’s music.
“No need to sing lead when you wrote on the album #Royalties #checkTHAT,” she quipped.
Sadly, all but the original tweet have since been deleted.
