LeToya Luckett has opened up on the challenging times she faced after leaving Destiny’s Child in 1999.
Luckett exited the girl group after a nasty spat with the band’s manager, Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles.
Taking to Instagram Live on Sunday, the singer discussed how she found it hard to make a living after leaving the band as she never attended college.
“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,” she admitted.
“I was staying at people’s houses … I slept in a car in LA while I was making my first [solo] album. Not a lot of nights, but a few.”
Luckett also detailed how she lived in a hotel and survived by eating Oodles of Noodles.
She tearfully reminisced on “cooking them on a coffee pot at the hotel.”
Thankfully, Luckett finally got out of the hotel after landing the lead role in the 2010 movie “Preacher’s Kid”.
She has since starred in a number of TV shows, and is now pregnant with her second child.
