Former Destiny’s Child member, LaTavia Roberson, has opened up about her struggles with depression and drug addiction after leaving the group. During a recent interview with People magazine, LaTavia said, “I never left Destiny’s Child. That is something that people say. But who would leave Destiny’s Child? That’s crazy! I was dismissed from the group. It was very difficult because of the way that I found out about it. I hate even talking about it, and it’s been 20 years – but it is what it is.

You’re no longer with your friends, people that you love so much. So that was hard in itself, and then being by myself at that time, when other aspects starting taking a hold of me, it led me into a depression. And it wasn’t pretty…” The former DC member then added, “There are a lot of things that I’ve gone through – molestation, dealing with alcoholism and drugs
