Beyoncé Makes Us Do A Double Take Rocking Her Throwback Hair To Reunite With A Former Destiny’s Child Member

Aw.

This is the second time in less than two weeks that Bey has reunited with an old bandmate. What are the odds, huh?

Just a week after LeToya Luckett showed up to Beyoncé & JAY Z‘s On The Run II tour (with a baby bump, none the less) to hug it out with the Queen, LaTavia Roberson has done the same—and, yes, there is photographic proof!

The internet likes to give LaTavia a hard time and assume she’s bitter any time she mentions Beyoncé or talk about being an original member of Destiny’s Child.  Clearly, she’s not bitter as she’s all smiles with the pop star.

During the Houston leg of the tour, Beyoncé was joined by LaTavia (and her mom) backstage.

In a series of photos, Roberson explained Bey has been her friend for over 30 years.

“It was so wonderful sharing a laugh and spending time with my FRIEND of 30 yrs,” LaTavia gushed. “Hadn’t seen Bey in 18 yrs. My mother @cheryl_lastrap is clearly tickled.” 

It was so wonderful sharing a laugh and spending time with my FRIEND of 30 yrs.....hadn’t seen Bey in 18 yrs. My mother @cheryl_lastrap is clearly tickled. The children are amazing “Everything IS Love”💕💜💕

Bey’s mother, Tina, shared a snap on her end as well. This one showcased LaTavia and her daughter hugging. 

Beyoncé was wearing a $1,640 JW Anderson contrast panel, cut out, linen blend dress with center-parted curls, a throwback from the early days of her solo career. LaTavia rocked jean shorts and a mesh top. 

Gorgeous.

Hi Latavia, looking beautiful ❤️ H-Town❤️❤️

Where’s the aforementioned reunion with Letoya Luckett last week:

Love. ♥️
That is really nice. 


LeToya & LaTavia’s departure from Destiny’s Child was a super messy one. The two singers didn’t find out that they had been replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin until a new video aired.

“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,’ LaTavia once noted. “I hate even talking about it, and it's been 20 years - but it is what it is. We saw the Say My Name video on TV, and that's how I found out I was no longer in the group."

"It was very difficult," she once told People. "I'm pretty sure that it was difficult for all of us - because we were young. My issue was always with the management; it was never with the girls.""It was almost like a bad divorce. 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..."


LaTavia actually recently wished Bey a happy birthday, so maybe there is a secret project in the works? Hm. Probably just wishful thinking on our part though.

"Happy bday to my 4ever sister Beyoncé. Starting this journey with your best friend & now watching her achieve everything she said she would accomplish is amazing!,” she captioned her post. “No matter what the past might’ve given us the one thing it couldn’t do was take away the love and admiration we have for each other. So celebrate LIVE-LOVE-LAUGH everyone deserves those 3 simple things 💜💜💜‼️‼️‼️"

#LaTaviaRoberson wishes her forever sister #Beyonce a happy birthday!

LaTavia was part of the original line-up of Destiny's Child, alongside Beyoncé, LeToya and Kelly Rowland. Their second album, The Writings on the Wall, in 1999 included hits like, "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Say My Name".

This is from a shoot in London. Ppl call me the bitter one but how can I be bitter when I’m so proud of everyone in this picture. We created a legacy that can’t be touched. ALL 4 of us. We have a bond that no one can understand. I can’t compare my chapter 36 to Kelly’s chapter 36 or Beyoncé or LeToya’s so why does the world compare us? So no I’ve never been bitter these are my sisters!!!! Keep winning @beyonce @kellyrowland @letoyaluckett & even @michellewilliams no #tbt just a treat for the fans that’s been down since day 1 💋💋💋 #sisters

Fingers crossed that this once-girl group takes the stage together again soon!
