Pebbles Speaks Out on TLC Movie on ‘Wendy Williams,’ Chilli & T-Boz Respond

Pebbles is doing her best to clear her name.
After her unflattering portrayal in the VH1 movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, the former manager of TLC appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to defend herself.
“It was a complete lie,” Pebbles told Williams during her visit to the show on Wednesday.
In the film, L.A. Reid’s ex-wife is accused of cheating the group of millions. But contrary to what viewers saw, Pebbles said it was T-Boz and Left Eye who wanted her out once she began a romantic relationship with producer Dallas Austin.
“This is what they said to me: ‘She’s in here doing this and doing that,’” Pebbles said. “They had group rules. I sat down with them early on and said, ‘Establish how you want to be a unit, so you can keep your communication together. Make rules. Don’t cross these rules.’”
Pebbles said that one of those rules included not fraternizing with producers and other “help.” “They did not like it. They did not want it,” said Pebbles.
L.A. Reid’s ex-wife believes Austin wasn’t the only one that Chilli slept with. Pebbles “absolutely” believes that Chilli slept with her husband at the time.
“I didn’t know. I suspected a couple of things, and I didn’t want to believe that,” Pebbles said. “Believe me when I say, I saw a couple of things.”
But Pebbles admits she never actually caught them together, She also thinks Left Eye and T-Boz were aware of the alleged extramarital affair.
When asked if it was true that the girls got $25 a week and Toyota RAV4s after they went platinum, she said, “I don’t do $25 on things. I’m a very generous person. That’s a lie, a huge one.”
She said the girls wanted RAV4s so they got them. “You don’t have Ferrari money, why get you one?”
She has not spoken out before because of confidentiality agreements in place. Although she’s upset with T-Boz and Chilli for her portrayal, she’s also upset with VH1.
“It was laughable some of the stuff. It was just so over the top,” Pebbles said of the film. “It’s not really about the girls. They are the messengers. You keep saying something that is not true. That’s not OK. But VH1, you are helping them promote an untruth.”
After the interview aired, TLC responded, “No member of TLC ever slept with or had sexual contact with LA Reid as Perri falsely accused Chilli of on “The Wendy Williams Show.” In fact, Perri had falsely allege the same thing happened with Tionne.”
T-Boz added,”I would like to confirm that Perri Reid was the only person who ever suggested that Chilli leave TLC. Neither Lisa nor I ever wanted or suggested that.” Watch Pebbles interview below.
