LeToya Luckett is defending her former Destiny's Child group member against accusations of treating their bandmate Kelly Rowland negatively.
Earlier this month an old video surfaced on the video sharing website Vine, where each of the four original Destiny's Child group members which include LaTavia Roberson and Luckett introduce themselves. When Rowland introduced herself, it seemed a young Beyonce was not happy with her statement.
"I'm the second lead vocalist of the group," Rowland said in the old video, which has been circulating on Twitter and Vine without a specific date.
Beyonce's reaction to the statement was a pointed look in Rowland's direction and a well timed cough. People on Twitter could not resist commenting on the video, saying that Beyonce "shaded" Rowland in the video clip.
However, 32-year-old Luckett insists that was not the case. The singer and "Single Ladies" actress recalled first hearing about the old video that has been picking up steam on the internet.
"So, I suddenly start getting texts on a particular day as soon as it surfaced and they were like, 'Your face,'" Luckett recalled to MTV. "And I was like, 'What face? What are you talking about?' And so I went and I looked and I died laughing because I don't know where that even came from [or] why we were looking like that."
She went on to address Beyonce's infamous cough and look in the video.
"Everybody is like, 'Shade for Beyoncé's cough,' What if the girl had to cough," Luckett questioned. "What if she was having like, an issue? It seemed like shade was being thrown, but I don't remember throwing the shade."
In fact, Luckett insisted that each of the women in the group knew their position and had no problems with their roles.
"[What Kelly said] was the truth, we really would sit there and everybody knew their role. It was a real team, like, we were team players," Luckett told MTV. "B was first lead; Kelly was second lead; I was soprano; Tavia was the alto and she was the spokesperson. Everybody knew their lane so no one ever stepped in anyone else's lane. That's how every team should work."
