This could get worse before it gets better…
Sister Perri Reid, otherwise known as R&B singer, Pebbles, is suing Viacom for her portrayal in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. During the beginning of their career, Pebbles managed the iconic trio, and she wasn’t painted in the best life on the original movie, which aired on VH1 in 2013.
The suit alleges that Pebbles was painted, “as a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.”
Pebbles goes on to claim that Viacom, “ignored fundamental canons of journalistic and literary conduct by publishing false and defamatory accusations with actual malice.”
More details below:
The suit filed late Friday states that, contrary to what VH1 viewers saw, Reid never controlled TLC’s lawyers or accountants, never withheld contract terms from TLC and always paid the group what they were owed. – Source
I guess taking all of TLC’s money in the 90’s (allegedly), forcing them to file for bankruptcy wasn’t enough … All right now Sister Reid… just be sure to pay your tithes on any winnings and please have a seat in the church’s last pew…
