LaTavia Roberson on Why She Left Destiny's Child: 'I Definitely Did Not Quit,' Says Singer

LaTavia Roberson, 32-year-old Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter formerly of the group Destiny's Child, is opening up about her issues with the group.

Roberson cleared up rumors about her reason for leaving the popular award-winning group.

"I definitely did not quit," she revealed on "The Wendy Williams Show." "Who would quit Destiny's Child? That's insane."

The singer who currently appears on TV One's "R&B Divas" spoke about her conflict in the singing group.

"Our conflict was strictly with management. It had nothing to do with the other ladies at all," she told host Wendy Williams. "We didn't have anything against Beyoncé and Kelly [Rowland] at all. At that time, Matthew (Knowles) was our personal manager and he was everybody's group manager."

She went on to state that she wanted a personal manager other than Knowles, while continuing to have him be the group's manager.

"We disaffirmed him as our personal manager. We wanted to have someone actually to come in and manage along with him," she said. "We weren't trying to fire him as the group's manager."

Last year, Roberson revealed she is planning to write a tell-all book where she will speak about the group that made her famous. She explained why she has decided to write her book recently.

"I've heard things about me and I've heard rumors about myself. I do not mind being someone who will open up my life to any fans that I have about where I've really been," she told S2S magazine previously. "I'd rather they get it from the horse's mouth."

However, the singer who used to be in a group with Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland said she will not shy away from speaking about her former situation with them.

"I'll definitely talk about my experiences in Destiny's Child and everything that happened in my life thereafter. I've been through some serious things," she told S2S magazine. "It's a testimony."
