TLC’s surviving members are busy promoting their upcoming biopic CrazySexyCool and performed on Good Morning America as part of its fall concert series lineup. The duo was also on The Breakfast Club were they opened up about their relationship with LA Reid and Pebbles who signed and created the group but screwed them over with contracts that basically had them working for peanuts!
The girls revealed how they were forced to buy back the name of their group from Pebbles at $1 million per letter. Hey at least they weren’t called Destiny’s Child or En Vogue or Salt-n-Pepa – now those would have required a whole lot more than $3 million!
Chilli talked about her relationship with Dallas Austin and how Peebles kicked her out of the group when she got pregnant the first time and she had to get an abortion to get back into the group. T-Boz revealed how Peebles tried to force her from her sick bed to go perform – T-Boz suffers from Sickle Cell disease so it’s not like she had the flu or something!
Peebles apparently listened to the interview and is not happy because she’s threatening to sue the ladies! She tweeted,
“I’m NOT here to promote something I put on the MAP and yet have been disrespected by because of more reasons than one! Lawyers on deck????…I would say being lied on 4 as long &trying to continue to is sadder. But,the continued slander from all will help prove just what was done….Thank you love. It’s not good what they played a part of but it will be dealt with now that the slander continues. TLC without me? No way
I am in shock listening to all this mess and lies on this radio interview!!This is madness!!! It’s SO hard to believe this! DO NOT believe…Love you guys. Not going to comment about this anymore on here UN officially. Dealing with this though.”
