LeToya Luckett Has A Message About Love Following Her Divorce

Wait for no one.

Celebrity News

It's been nine months since LeToya Luckett announced her divorce from Tommicus Walker. Fans of the "Torn" singer watched her and Tommicus' marriage play out on T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle as they tackled a lot of hardships as well as cheating allegations. While LeToya has been kind of mum following their split, the singer, who shares two children with her ex-husband, recently took to Instagram Live to talk about love and relationships.

While the 40-year-old didn't share whether or not she was speaking from experience, she did share her thoughts on why she believes some relationships fail.

"I think we're always on the quest for the things that we desire that we miss what we have. Don't take those things for granted because what will happen is you'll get a peek of what you want out of someone. They'll check maybe like 3 out of the 10 boxes that you got and then, what happens after that?
"Most of the time you rush into something and end up in a miserable situation that you're now like, 'OK, how do I get out of this?' All because you wanted a little bit of love and for somebody to be there."

The Greenleaf actress also suggested that people should stop waiting on finding "the one" before going after their dreams and the things you want in life. This time using herself as an example, she said:

"I always wanted to go to Greece and so I said, 'Oh I'm going to wait until I'm married and go to Greece. And there was a bag I always wanted, 'Oh I'm going to wait until I'm married and then maybe my husband will buy me that bag.' Now granted, I had the money to buy it myself. I used to want a Cartier Love bracelet so bad and I was like, 'Now I'm going to wait until I get married and I'm going to tell my husband I want it for my anniversary.'
"Aht, aht! No. Do those things that you always wanted to do when you want to do them and on your own time."

Speak, sis!

It looks like LeToya has learned a lot from her past relationships and is focused on getting back to her happy. She's been posting adorable family photos on Instagram as well as documenting her weight loss journey. She also announced that she landed a new role on Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

Prior to Tommicus, the former Destiny's Child member was also briefly married to author Rob Hill Sr. and dated rapper Slim Thug.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
