T-Boz and Chilli cannot escape the wrath of their ex-manager.
TMZ reports that TLC’s ex-manager Perri “Pebbles” Reid has filed another $40 million lawsuit against them and Viacom for the way she was portrayed in the VH1 flick CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. In court documents, Reid claims that the film, which aired a year ago, ruined her reputation and depicted her as a liar and a cheat when all she really did was out her blood, sweat and tears into making them superstars.
The biopic also made it seem like Reid wanted Chilli and T-Boz to disregard major health concerns for the sake of the group’s touring schedule, which she denies. There were scenes that showed Reid pressuring Chilli to get an abortion and being more concerned with the group’s itinerary than T-Boz’s sickle cell anemia.
