During the talk, she revealed to Eric Nam how she was in a difficult situation financially, especially back in 2020 when she was just an up and coming artist in the industry, and that she wasn't able to perform shows.
Her financial difficulty continued on into 2021, where she shares how her manager would inform her that her money was about to run and that she would have a few months left until she would be "flat zero."
Hearing that, Destiny Rogers thought that she would need to move back to her hometown and uproot the life she built in Los Angeles only after a year and a half.
