Whatever Happened To LaTavia Roberson From Destiny's Child?

Before parting ways to take on their own endeavors, the performers in Destiny's Child were the It girls of R&B in the late '90s and early '00s. Crowned one of the top 10 girl groups of all time by Billboard, the group saw major success with songs such as "Say My Name" and "Bootylicious." Destiny's Child is widely recognized for its lineup of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams. However, over the course of the group's career, we've seen a few members of the group come and go. Before Williams joined the group in early 2000, there were three lost soldiers of the group that we can't forget: Farrah Franklin, LeToya Luckett, and LaTavia Roberson.

Luckett and Roberson were part of Destiny's Child's original lineup when they first reached stardom in 1997. The quartet at the time consisted of Knowles, Rowland, Luckett, and Roberson. Following the release of their 1999 best-selling second album, Writings On The Wall, the group faced lineup changes. Luckett and Roberson believed that Beyoncé's father and their manager, Mathew Knowles, kept a disproportionate amount of their profits and favored his daughter and Rowland, per MTV News. As a result, both Luckett and Roberson were replaced with Williams and Franklin. Fortunately for the two former members, their careers did not end there. Here's what LaTavia Roberson's been up to since her Destiny's Child days.

LaTavia Roberson's business venture is a hit (literally!)

Following her leave from Destiny's Child, LaTavia Roberson established herself as a multi-hyphenate. The former member and co-founder of the group took on acting, radio hosting, and even appeared on reality shows such as R&B Divas and Real Housewives of Atlanta alongside her lawyer at the time, Phaedra Parks. When Roberson is not sharing adorable photos of her children on her Instagram account, she's working on her business venture that is sure to be a knockout — pun intended.

In November 2018, Roberson took a rather interesting direction in her career by becoming the founder of Roberson Sports Management, L.L.C., per PR Newswire. According to the management agency's website, Roberson Sports Management seeks to provide resources such as training and sponsorships to the "next generation of boxers." It turns out that Roberson had a "love and passion" for boxing since she was a child. As of this post, the former singer has two boxers signed under her management agency.

In February 2020, Roberson shared a photo of her agency's logo and shared a few words about its progress. "It was a phenomenal weekend for 'Roberson Sports Management'......we had weigh ins Friday and both of my fighters @rock_nation4 and @divanteenigma won lastnight!" she captioned the post. "We are blessed! I love this sport [heart emojis] Congrats guys! Many more to come." Over 20 years later, LaTavia Roberson didn't need Destiny's Child to prove she's a survivor.
