Beyonce proved there were no hard feelings between herself and singer LETOYA LUCKETT when she "went out of her way" to greet her former DESTINY'S CHILD bandmate backstage at the BET Awards on Sunday night (28Jun09).
Rumours of a rift have been rife since Luckett and pal LaTavia Roberson were kicked out of the girl band they co-founded with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland in 2000.
The rejected pair subsequently filed suit against the group's manager, Beyonce's dad Mathew Knowles, accusing him of a breach of partnership; the matter was settled out of court.
Reports of an ongoing feud continued to circulate after the BET Awards on Sunday (28Jun09), and Beyonce was forced to deny claims her management team had demanded event bosses ban Luckett from singing at the ceremony in Los Angeles if they wanted the Crazy In Love star to perform.
Luckett has admitted the pop diva pair's past differences are now firmly behind them and reveals they found time for a brief catch-up backstage at the awards show.
She says, "We did get a chance to see each other backstage and it was really cool. I hadn't seen her in a while. She went out of her way to get around security to basically say, 'Hey girl.' It was cool."
And Luckett, who has since launched a solo career, insists she would love to reunite with her childhood pal in the studio.
She adds, "I would love to do a song with B. She's just an amazing person and we already know how talented she is."
