Former Destiny's Child singer LaTavia Roberson is reportedly in critical condition after suffering pregnancy complications. The r'n'b singer, who is around five months into her pregnancy, is said to have been rushed to a hospital yesterday (4 July) but the current status of her health is yet to be revealed.
According to a report by The Shade Room, a source said Roberson, 34, is "fighting for her life". Roberson last connected with her fans via social media on 2 July when she shared a photo of herself lying beside her pool in a bikini with her bump on display. The singer captioned the image: "Happy Saturday lovers."
Roberson announced her pregnancy at the press screening for her new web series The Online Diary Of LaTavia Roberson in June 2016. The Houston-native then confirmed the news on Instagram with an image of herself embracing her baby bump, while teasing her followers: "Must be somethin in the water!?"
The singer is already a mother to two-year-old daughter Lyric, with music producer Don Vito. The online series follows her family life and her foray back into entertainment and a new career in acting.
Roberson rose to prominence as a member of the original Destiny's Child line-up, alongside Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Letoya Luckett, and their earlier incarnation Girls Tyme. The singer enjoyed success with early Destiny's Child hits including; Bills Bills Bills and No No No, however she and Luckett were replaced by Williams for the group's Say My Name single in 2000.
Although rumours have always circulated of a feud between Roberson and her former bandmates, the singer says she has since been in contact with the various group members. Speaking to Enstarz in 2014, Roberson said: "I've been in touch with all of the girls. LeToya came to my baby shower, and she actually came to the hospital right after I had Lyric."
Roberson also spoke highly of Beyonce, alluding to the musician's success as a solo artiste following Destiny's Child's split in 2004: "Every single album, I have several copies of them. She has definitely grown into one of my heroes, for sure. Since I was like 20-years-old, I've truly looked up to her and I am not just trying to say that because she is my friend. To watch her bring herself to everything that always told me that she was going to do, has been amazing and it has been very inspiring. She is like no other, point blank."
IBTimes UK could not get Roberson's representatives to confirm the incident before publication.
