Looks like Blue Ivy will soon have a potential playmate: LaTavia Roberson is three months pregnant.
One fourth of Destiny's Child's original lineup, Roberson, 31, made the announcement in a press release. Coincidentally, her baby is due on September 4, her former bandmate Beyoncé's birthday. According to the press release, LaTavia's child's father is a "well known Atlanta producer." Roberson formerly dated Jagged Edge member Brandon Casey, but they split several years ago.
Roberson also revealed that she has inked a production deal with hit reality-TV producer Carlos King to work on a revealing show about her past, her pregnancy and more.
"I’m excited to work with LaTavia to effectively tell her story on television," King — who also produced Real Housewives of Atlanta, Oprah's Season 25 Behind the Scenes and Real Housewives of New Jersey — said. "This is her first time speaking out about her past. This woman has endured more than the public even realizes, and once they hear half of it, they will be in awe. She is a true survivor!"
The press release states that the show will document "Latavia’s pregnancy, the ups and downs of her relationship with her child's father and her past battles with molestation, alcoholism and jail time." It also teases that Roberson will be returning to the studio to work on solo material and is still working on a tell-all memoir due later this year.
Sounds like a true independent woman.
