Yes! LaTavia Roberson admitted her skin tone has changed over the years!

However, it’s NOT from bleaching her skin.

She’s actually proud of her skin — only altering it because her love for tanning growing up.

The former Destiny’s Child member dished to theGrio about what is actually going on with her skin tone.

“Lately it’s been going around about me bleaching my skin [laughs]. You know, I don’t know if it’s the blonde hair,” she said laughing while acknowledging the ridiculous rumor.

But she stopped tanning because of what happened to her mother.

“Wat a lot of people don’t know is that I used to—I’m a big, big, big, huge fan of tanning. I love to tan because I love the sun. I love the water,” LaTavia explained. “Once my mother got diagnosed with breast cancer—it was something that we used to do together—I definitely stepped back from that and I don’t tan as much.”

And of course, Roberson dished about her days as a Destiny’s Child member.

The popular group from the late 1990s to mid-2000s is known as a quartet and a trio.

But she revealed there could have been less members than that!

“There were looks at Beyoncé and I doing a duo,” she revealed.

Nevertheless, there are no hard feelings about leaving the group. She occasionally speaks to the other ladies.

“I think that one of the biggest misconceptions that people have about me is that I’m bitter about what happened with Destiny’s Child–and that I’m bitter towards Matthew,” she said. “It wa business, totally. I would never trade anything in my life for my experience and my time with Destiny’s Child. Ever.”
