The hardships just keep on coming for the feisty R&B females of Destiny's Child.
Earlier this year, pandemonium hit when original members Beyoncé Knowles and Kelly Rowland waved bye-bye to LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, who were suddenly replaced by Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams in a very public reshuffling resulting in both tears and lawsuits. Now new member Farrah has parted ways with the group just five months after she joined, whittling the group down to a trio. (As of press time, the reason for Franklin's departure had yet to be disclosed.)
As the group continues to ride a wave of multi-platinum success with its second album, "The Writing's On The Wall," and prepares to hit the road with Christina Aguilera, being a member of DC appears to be becoming a gig that's as high-turnover as it is high-profile.
Before the latest split hit, MTV Radio's Roger Coletti and Curtis Waller chatted with the group's Beyoncé -- who's considered by many to be the leader of Destiny's Child, if not "Destiny's Child" herself -- about the group's future, its next album, and getting started in the studio with Michelle and now-ex-member Farrah. Check it out.
