Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reid has finally opened up about all the TLC drama.
Tired of the rumors and alleged lies, she stopped by The Wendy Williams Show to share all the dirty details, squash the rumors and share her side of the story. According to Pebbles, the only thing true about her portrayal in VH1’s CrazySexyCool: TLC Story biopic was that she carries Chanel handbags!
Pebbles and Wendy got right down to business, starting with the rumors she caught Chilli and her then-husband L.A. Reid in the act. She says those claims are false, however, she “absolutely” believes they were having an affair, because she “saw things.”
The biopic also depicts Pebbles conning the girls into signing contracts without reading the fine print, something she claims is far from true.
“If the contract was so bad, why’d you sign it?” She said.
She also claims that Crystal, the would-be ‘C’ in TLC, was never given a contract, despite the film’s claims that she was. Pebbles says poor Crystal never even made it that far.
Pebbles also addressed theft rumors, saying she’d never steal from the group. “Hell no!,” she said, adding that at times she felt as though the trio were her own daughters.
The girl group’s former manager said it was higher ups, like Clive Davis and L.A. Reid, who were really banking off the girls.
Pebbles closed out the interview by dropping a bomb on the audience. She revealed once and for all who really gave Chilli the boot. According to Pebbles, it was Chilli’s own bandmates who aced her, after they had grown uncomfortable with her relationship with their producer. T-Boz and Left Eye reportedly believed she crossed the line and broke “group rules.”
Reid plans to stand by the lawsuit she filed against VH1 for the “many false and defamatory statements and scenes” in the film.
