Fans go wild as Beyoncé poses with Destiny's Child reject LeToya Luckett

Hardcore Beyoncé fans went crazy yesterday after Queen Bee posted a photo with former Destiny’s Child bandmate LeToya Luckett – the singer was kicked out of the group in 2000, right before the band became household names.

The now viral image, which was simply captioned ‘Love’, comes 18 years after the famous fall-out and was taken in Arlington, Texas during Beyoncé’s On The Run II Tour.

In the photograph Toya, 37, can be seen beaming from ear to ear while embracing Beyoncé and holding her baby bump.

Beyoncé, who sported a lace and beaded bodysuit, looked thrilled to be reunited with her former friend as she rested her head on her shoulder.

Destiny’s Child was formed in the early nineties with original members Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Robertson, Tamar Davis and Nikki and Nina Taylor.

In 1993 Tamar, Nikki and Nina were cut from the band by Beyoncé’s father and the group’s manager at the time, Matthew Knowles.

The three former members were replaced by LeToya.

In 1998, Destiny’s Child released their self-titled album; it included the hit tune No, No, No.

Huge success came after they released their second album, The Writing’s On The Wall, which included Say My Name, and Bills, Bills, Bills.

In December 1999, members LaTavia and LeToya tried to split with Matthew as their manager because of allegations he favoured Beyoncé and Kelly.

Months later, the women were replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin in the group.

In March of 2000, LeTavia and LeToya filed a lawsuit against Kelly and Beyoncé as well as Matthrew.

Farrah left the group, leaving the girl group as it is today: Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle.

Last year, LeToya teared up as she spoke to Pastor John Gray on his OWN show: ‘I felt a few things. What do I do now? This is all that I know and I’m afraid to do something alone and these were my friends.’

LeToya, who put out her third solo album out last year, is married to Tommicus Walker; they are expecting their first child together and it looks like any rift with Beyoncé has now been mended.
