Remember when Destiny's Child was one of the most popular girl bands in the music industry? That was before LeToya Luckett mysteriously quit the band and disappeared from the scene.
For years, nobody knew where she was or what she was doing, but 20 years later, she is finally back to tell her story.
The singer behind the hit 'I Miss You' admitted in her recent Instagram Live that she hasn't had the best time since departing from Destiny's Child, and she even got emotional while recounting some of her experiences.
So what compelled her to leave a very successful music career, and what has she been up to for the past two decades? Keep reading to find out.
Why She Left
Destiny's Child first broke onto the scene in 1997 with it's hit single, No, No, No, but only three years later Luckett and another band member, Latavia Roberson, left the group.
After their exit, the pair did an interview in which they revealed that the reason they left was Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, who at the time managed the girl band.
Some of the members of the group weren't happy with his management style and they even tried to get him replaced but ended up being removed from the band themselves.
What's even worse is that Luckett and Roberson didn't even receive a notice that they were being fired, and only found out after the release of "Say My Name" which featured different singers.
However, Luckett's replacement, Farrah Franklin only lasted in the group for six months. She quit due to her own issues with the band members, after which, Destiny's Child continued as a trio, becoming hugely successful before its demise in 2005.
After getting kicked out of the band, Luckett had a tough time getting back on her feet. She revealed in the IG Live that she was homeless for the most part, and spent many nights sleeping in her car or crashing on a friend's couch.
The singer broke down as she recalled some of her experiences, saying that at one point she didn't even have money to buy food. For months, she survived on instant noodles, but her luck eventually turned around and she was able to rebuild her music career, this time doing it solo.
Besides having several albums to her name, she has also appeared in many television shows. Despite her unfortunate exit from the band, Luckett says that she is still friends with the former Destiny's Child members, including Beyonce.
