LeToya Luckett Launches New YouTube Show With Her Ex Slim Thug As Her First Guest

Talk about starting things off with a bang...

Celebrity News

From singing to acting to reality TV, LeToya Luckett now has her own YouTube show. The “Torn” singer premiered her new show titled Leave It to LeToya this week on the Kin network which also houses Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix, Adrienne Bailon’s All Things Adrienne, and many others. Leave It to LeToya is a lifestyle channel that will touch on the singer’s life, family, fashion, and much more.


The series already started off with a bang with her first episode featuring her ex-boyfriend Houston rapper Slim Thug. The former couple began dating in 2000 after meeting at a club in H-Town. They were on and off for 10 years and revealed that they were even engaged at one point. During their sit-down, the artists reflected on their relationship and whether or not they can give love another try.

Here are some highlights:

On How LeToya Luckett and Slim Thug Met:

They met at a club in Houston and LeToya shared that the “Like a Boss” rapper actually sent a friend over to speak to her. She reluctantly went over to meet Slim and they exchanged numbers. However, when the rapper called the Greenleaf actress the phone somehow hung up and they didn’t speak until they met at a different club much later. “You can tell she was trying to get my attention. She walked by like five times,” Slim said about seeing LeToya a second time, to which the singer denied. “He caught me in the corner when the lights came on,” LeToya explained. She was also able to clear up what happened when she hung up on him and from there that was the beginning of their relationship.

On What LeToya Liked About Slim:

The “Regret” singer said that what drew her to the “I Ain’t Hear of That” artist was his “confidence.” “He’s not shy when it comes to his artistry and his creativity. He’s a star when he walks in,” she said. She then began describing his appearance saying that his height at 6'6'' as well as his being handsome makes him stand out. “It’s a light on him when he walks in any room. It’s attractive.”

On What Slim Liked About LeToya:

Slim admitted that he was initially drawn to LeToya’s “drip.” “She always dress like she going somewhere fancy,” he said. He also shared that he was taken aback by her sense of humor saying that he didn’t know she was that funny and that they felt like “BFFs.” “We really enjoyed kickin’ it,” he said.

On Why They Broke Up:

LeToya cited the reason behind their breakup as being too young to settle down. “We tried to have something serious at a very young age,” she explained. “I met him at 20. To my surprise, he was ready to lock in, get married, have a home, kids, in our early 20s. Although his heart was probably ready for something like that, his environment–they didn’t align.” While she didn’t say whether there was cheating in the relationship, she did say Slim would often entertain the attention he got from women causing her to become frustrated and “leave a lot.” “I felt like issues we could have probably worked through, talked through if I didn’t feel that he was hearing me, or was ready to make the changes that needed to be made, I was out.”

Slim, on the other hand, believes that their small disagreements and breakups to make-ups ultimately took a toll on the entire relationship. However, he did take the blame for their relationship’s demise. “I do take the responsibility of being the person that messed up and I’m not blaming her at all. It was my mistakes that led us not being together,” he said.

On If They Will Ever Get Back Together:

The former Destiny’s Child member shared that Slim often told her they were “soul mates.” She acknowledged that they already have a foundation, friendship, and history for a possible reconciliation. “I think it would be a conversation of what do you need? What do I need? This is what I need and what do you need?” She said.

“I know and I’ve learned that you can’t make somebody happy. You have to be happy with yourself and be whole and then that person has to come in and complement that and see you and I think in my relationships moving forward, I have to be seen. The good thing about Slim is he has seen me in almost every way happy, sad, angry, confused, every state because we were a decade in so I think it would just be communication, patience for sure. This is what I want. This is what I expect. This is where I’m at.”
