WATCH: LaTavia Roberson talks leaving Destiny's Child

Listen to Destiny's Child on iHeartRadio

LaTavia Roberson is a happy, healthy mother and a star of "R&B Divas: Atlanta," but the singer didn’t always have such a sweet life.

She dished details about her painful split from Destiny’s Child and her struggle with substance abuse in a recent interview with Wendy Williams.

“I definitely did not quit. Who would quit Destiny’s Child? That’s insane,” she said.

“Our conflict was strictly with management. It had nothing to do with the other ladies at all. We didn’t have anything against Beyoncé and Kelly [Rowland] at all.”

According to LaTavia, Beyonce‘s dad, Matthew Knowles, didn’t want to let her get her own manager.

“At that time, Mathew was our personal manager and he was everybody’s group manager. We disaffirmed him as our personal manager. We wanted to have someone actually to come in and manage along with him. We weren’t trying to fire him as the group’s manager,” she explained.

“It was crazy. It was painful.”

She also revealed plans for a tel-all book and explained why she wouldn’t sing on her hit show.
