Pebbles Demands Retraction
After waiting nearly two weeks, following the premiere of VH1’s super successful TV film “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” to “gather her thoughts,” Pebbles is ready to talk. The former music exec released a statement demanding a retraction of scenes that negatively depict her (all of them), calling them defamatory.
Pebbles signed the members of TLC to a greedy contract, denying them access to it when they demanded. To add insult to injury, she allegedly paid the girls $25 a week for living expenses. T-Boz and Chilli have been very vocal about how they were treated while signed to Peebitone records. They contend that Pebbles was portrayed accurately.
Read Pebbles statement, below:
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.
Girl, sit down.
