LeToya Luckett was broke and sleeping in her car after her exit from Destinys Child.
During an Instagram Live, an emotional Luckett shared her testimony with fans.
“I’m not gonna lie to you, after DC I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I was about 18-years-old, I hadn’t live as a normal teenager, I hadn’t gone to college. Even coming out of that, I wasn’t the most secure person because I was so used to having a ‘team’ mentality to think of going out on my own was terrifying. The thought of singing made me angry. I didn’t believe I had a voice, I didn’t believe I could sing, I didn’t believe I could return to the music industry. Make a long story short, after surrendering and getting to know God on a whole ‘nother level…I learned to surrender, get out of my own way, stop living in fear and allow him to direct my path.”
The Greenleaf star continued,
“During my journey I was staying at people’s house, I never told these stories before…I slept in a car in L.A. while I was making my first album. Not a lot of nights, but you know what I’m saying? I was drinking a gallon of water and buying the microwavable oodles of noodles [starts to weep]…I can’t believe I’m crying.”
