A lot of back and forth bickering has been going on between hit group TLC and their former manager.
The members of TLC-T-boz, Left Eye and Chili, have always been very candid about the role that their former manager Perri “Pebbles” Reid played in their road to bankruptcy.
Weeks before the premiere of the movie Reid has been threatening to call her lawyers neither denying or confirming accusations in the movie…
Reid released an official statement yesterday on her Facebook page to clear the air on her thoughts on her portrayal in the movie and the legal action she will take.
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 doors 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.
