2. Does Pebbles Believe Chilli Slept With L.A Reid?
Rumor had it that in the ’90s, Pebbles caught her husband at the time, L.A Reid, and her artist, Chilli having sex but Pebbles says, “I would have caught a case had I seen something like that. That didn’t happen.” Still, Pebbles does believe her ex and Chilli had an affair: “Absolutely. I didn’t know, I suspected a couple of things. I didn’t want to believe that for years because I felt like [TLC] were my daughters.”
3. Did Pebbles Steal Millions Of Dollars From TLC Through Bogus Contracts?
Wendy asked Pebbles the million dollar question about the millions of dollars TLC claimed she robbed them of. So did she steal their money? “Hell no,” Pebbles said. “This is one of the biggest, bogus lies that I saw in the movie. It was laughable, some of the stuff.” When asked if the girls got to see their contracts Pebbles said yes: “They had to get [their contracts] negotiated.”
4. Did Pebbles Really Kicked Chilli Out Of TLC?
“Absolutely not, T-Boz and Left Eye did,” Pebbles said. “Let me tell you something, and I love my Left Eye…[it was] because of what they said what was happening in the studio. This is what they said to me: ‘She’s in here doing this and doing that.’ They have group rules. I sat down with them to establish how you want to be a unit, so you can keep the communication. You got three girls, you gotta keep them together.”
5. Did Pebbles Really Buy TLC Rav 4s?
According to Pebbles, TLC was making money but not enough to purchase luxury cars. “Listen, you don’t have Ferrari money, why get you one? You haven’t made that. You just came out, you’re a new group,” she said.
6. Did Pebbles Really Pay The Girls $25 A Week?
Pebbles’ short answer for that: “Look at my boot that I got for you, Wendy. I don’t do $25 on things, I’m a very generous person, that’s a lie, a huge one.”
7. How Did Pebbles Feel About The Way She Was Portrayed In “CrazySexyCool”?
“How would you feel if you were being portrayed as something you’re not?,” she told Wendy. “And you’re not being portrayed as who you are, which is a visionary. I’m not an assistant, you know, just here, looking around, getting her hair done and some nail polish. I’m a visionary. The bottom line is, you had your own attorneys, the only thing I did was get a referral for you because nobody knows you.”
8. Did Pebbles Choose TLC’s Lawyers So She Can Manipulate Them?
“No, no, no. I did not know them. Twenty years ago, we’re in Atlanta, it’s a reputable firm, so T-Boz is a shampoo girl, are they gonna pick up her call at that point in their life to say, do you wanna negotiate a contract? No, it has to be based on reputation. I’m saying, would you please, I have a group that I want to sign, but they need representation. Please take the meeting, if it works out, cool.”
9. So Was There Any Truth To The TLC Biopic?
“CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” was labeled a true story, but Pebbles said the film was “laughable” and far from accurate. “It was a complete lie,” she said. The one small nugget of truth in the film according to Pebbles: “I did wear Chanel bags,” she said.
