While most of the world knows Destiny’s Child reunited on Sunday night during Beyoncé’s electrifying Super Bowl Halftime performance, one of the group’s founding members was watching from home.
The Huffington Post reports LaTavia Roberson had nothing but good things to say about Queen B and DC members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams’s performance Sunday night.
“Obviously, seeing Beyonce perform was the highlight for me,” the 31-year-old told Celebuzz. “I got a real surprise when both Kelly [Rowland] and Michelle [Williams] both popped-up on the stage like that.”
She continued, “I thought they all looked great and did a good job with their dance moves. Beyonce was especially amazing. She looked fabulous and her voice was really strong. During the performance somebody texted me to say they could not hear Kelly and Michelle sing. It was so noisy in the house where we watched the performance that I did not really notice anything wrong. But who knows? They probably had some technical problems.”
Roberson was a part of the original Destiny’s Child, which included Beyoncé, Rowland, and LeToya Luckett. However, Luckett and Roberson left the group in 2000, claiming manager and Beyoncé’s father Matthew Knowles took too much for profit and favored Beyoncé and Kelly to the other members.
Since then, there appears to be no ill will between the former DC members and the current.
Roberson said, "I have spoken to all the girls since then. I've seen Beyoncé and we've embraced each other and we've hugged. I've told her how proud I am of everything that she's been doing and that she's an absolutely phenomenal woman ... There's not a bitter bone in my body. Even through the breakup, I just have to believe that that was my fate in that group."
Former member Luckett also showed her DC love Sunday night. On the Halftime performance, she tweeted “I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E. #soproud.”
