Pebbles Is Still Mad Y’all, Demands Retractions For TLC Biopic [UPDATED With Full Statement]
Pebbles has spoken out for the first time since the VH1 "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" biopic aired. And after her epic shadiness was showcased in the movie, Pebbles says it not all totally true. We’re sure.
Check out what she’s got to say about it inside…
From $25/week salaries to making artists like TLC pay for their own gifts bought for them "by the label"….people were pissed when they saw the breakdown of what really lead to TLC’s bankruptcy and other issues.
And while the contracts were shady as all hell, they were also arguably the norm back in the day. Well, when a celeb didn’t have someone purely looking out for their benefit. And when they didn’t have the same lawyer as the label (like in TLC’s case).
So Pebbles is claiming there were so many "untruths" in the story and she was made to look shady. So…the singer turned manager turned church lady’s getting her ducks in a row to sue. Again.
She told TMZ: "This unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family."
And she also said the movie contains "many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me."
Her son, Aaron Reid, also tweeted his disappointment with "how the movie made his mom look." Bet he wasn’t complaining about ANY of those furs and cars at his MTV Super Sweet 16 party though.
And then there’s this:
But the real Pebbles insists she has never cheated anyone — let alone the band she "discovered, managed, and mentored" — and plans to vigorously defend her honor. She says her attorney is already in the process of demanding retractions from VH1.
We’ll put money on it that Chilli & T-Boz give zero f****.
*UPDATE* Pebbles put out this statement, spotted at EBONY.com:
First I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. I apologize for the delay in responding to the movie, but I wanted to gather my thoughts. I have always been a private person and this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family. I have needed time to spend with my family and for personal reflection.
The movie contains many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me. Please know that I have never cheated or mislead anyone. I will defend my reputation, accomplishments, and character. My attorney is in the process of demanding a retraction of the false and defamatory statements and scenes about me from VH1.
My silence has empowered individuals looking for a payday at my expense. I have held my peace for 20 years and it’s time the truth comes out. I will be sharing my story in the appropriate venue at the appropriate time. With all my heart I thank you for your faithful support.
I am extremely proud of the success and massive accomplishments of TLC—the group I discovered, managed, and mentored. I helped push open for TLC and other women in this male dominated industry. My sacrifices ultimately opened the door for not only a new wave of female performers in this industry but also a new generation of female executives. That backdrop makes the movie extremely personally upsetting to me.
