LaTavia Roberson admits that her skin tone has changed over the years, but itâ€™s not because sheâ€™s bleaching her skin.
The â€œR&B Divasâ€ newbie decided to debunk some of the misconceptions that sheâ€™s faced during her career during a chat with The Grio.
When she first started popping up in promos for the new season for â€œR&B Divas,â€ people noticed that her complexion was a bit lighter than what many Destinyâ€™s Child fans remember. Immediately, it was assumed that LaTavia had intentionally lightened her skin.
â€œLately itâ€™s been going around talking about I bleach my skin [laughs]. You know, I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s the blonde hair,â€ she said with a laugh as she acknowledged the rumor.
The truth is that her skin tone now is closer to her natural complexion, and any change is just the result of her breaking one of her old habits.
â€œWhat a lot of people donâ€™t know is that I used toâ€”Iâ€™m a big, big, big, huge fan of tanning. I love to tan because I love the sun. I love the water,â€ LaTavia explained. â€œOnce my mother got diagnosed with breast cancerâ€”it was something that we used to do togetherâ€”I definitely stepped back from that and I donâ€™t tan as much.”
Roberson goes on to discuss her feelings about being booted from Destiny’s Child. Check it over at Sister 2 Sister…
