(AllHipHop News) In the recent TLC biopic broadcasted on VH1, the girl group’s creator Peri “Pebbles” Reid is clearly presented as the antagonist of the movie. After putting the Atlanta trio together, her character is portrayed as an overly stern taskmaster who purposely withheld money from the members despite their continued success.
While T-Boz and Chilli have stated that the version of their ex-manager you see in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story is accurate, Pebbles says the movie was false and defamatory. She is now working with her attorney to demand VH1 to make retractions to the scenes about her.
Pebbles released a statement via Twitter saying “this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family.” She adds that she “never cheated or mislead anyone” and it is “time the truth comes out.”
