Left Eye's sister gave an interview on the radio this past week as well, and basically said she and her family weren't 100% happy with how Left Eye was portrayed in the movie. T-Boz and Chilli only contacted them to sign off on allowing them to put Left Eye's "character" in the movie, but they didn't include them on the script/casting/production or anything:

http://v103.cbslocal.com/...-side-eye/

So basically we have 4 stories going on lol the one we saw in the movie, from the point of view of T-Boz and Chilli, then we have Crystal Jones who didn't like being shown as talentless and lazy, we have Pebbles and her children who are upset of course with her character in the movie, and we now have Left Eye's family. I don't think the fall out from this movie will be over any time soon.

Pebbles needs to shut her mouth and sit down rolleyes She can deny it all she wants,but she had these girls signed to a lousy deal that didn't even pay them alot of money.She did them wrong and everything should be revealed in the movie.

I never understand these comments, you hear them a lot in the music industry. Did anybody force TLC to sign the deal? A deal involves 2, after the deal is sealed you can´t say you don´t agree with the deal.

You shouldn´t have signed it in the first place than!

That´s the way it goes in any business, why is in the music industry you hear the artist got a lousy deal?

This all may be true, but certain labels out there has reneged on deals with certain artists. For an example, has Prince gotten back his masters? It's 2013 and leaving. He may never get it back.

Nobody forced them to sign,but keep in mind that they were young and unaware of how the music industry works.That's NO excuse for these shady,ruthless people to take advantage of them!

Dead Wrong: Pebbles Sues Left Eye Of TLC For Thousands Of Dollars She Was Owed From 1992

Pebbles Sues Left Eye Of ...2 | Bossip

Posted on October 29th, 2013 - By Bossip Staff


TLC8

Via CreamBMP Daily reports:

“Just cuz she not here doesn’t mean she ain’t gotta pay what she owe; Everybody pays what they owe. Ask TLC” said Pebbles to a Vh1 correspondent late Wednesday evening.

I honestly thought of her as a little sister …a little sister that owes me money from 1992″ – Pebbles

Pebbles sat down with VH1 briefly to discuss her plans to sue the people behind Left Eye’s estate and doesn’t have plans to let up until all is paid in full; Which is why remaining members of TLC mentioned they haven’t been able to perform some of their past hits in a Breakfast Club interview due to holds on Left Eye’s vocals

“TLC just did that BIG movie …Hell, they can pay!” said Pebbles sarcastically about TLC’s straight to TV movie ‘CrazySexyCool’ that has the whole world talking about the female super group once again.

Pebbles assured VH1 it had nothing to do with the way she was negatively portrayed in the TLC movie ‘CrazySexyCool’, but claims “It’s just business.”

You guys lol as shady as Pebbles has been, the story reported on bossip is not true. It's a joke. If you notice, the article says "via creambmp daily" as the source, which is a satire site. That site is like The Onion, except it focuses on black celeb satire.

.

They post other satirical headlines like "Drake asks Kris Jenner to marry him" and "Ray J is the real father of North West".

.

check it out for yourselves:

TLC'S MANAGER

FURIOUS Over Biopic

I WANT RETRACTIONS!!!

EXCLUSIVE

1030_perri-pebbles-reid_tlc_gettyTLC's former manager is LIVID over the new VH1 biopic about the 90s girl group -- telling TMZ, she was wrongly portrayed as a shyster in the movie ... and now she wants the network to make some serious retractions.

Perri "Pebbles" Reid tells us it has taken her more than a week to respond to the movie -- which aired last Monday -- because she was so shell-shocked by the damning lies in the film. She says, "This unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family."

But the real issue -- she tells us, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" contains "many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me."

If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's not exactly kind toward Pebbles ... portraying her as a shifty parasite who knowingly swindled millions from the group.

But the real Pebbles insists she has never cheated anyone -- let alone the band she "discovered, managed, and mentored" -- and plans to vigorously defend her honor. She says her attorney is already in the process of demanding retractions from VH1.

Calls to VH1 weren't returned.

But those people also made them big, there are thousands of girls who can make a group like TLC, you need smart people around you to make it happen.

It's not like they wrote their own songs, got the right producers etc.

They were the faces and the voices, that's it.

They needed management for it all, and that management wants to make their money....it's all business.

There's a difference between lying and telling your side of the story (or as T-Boz even admitted, "her" truth). The perceptions of (admittedly naive) young ladies aren't some kind of gospel. #TeamPebbles

Only when it happens to TLC are they victims. When it happens to, say, Toni Braxton, it's all her fault. shrug

Toni Braxton went bust by over-spending on stuff for herself. TLC never saw the money in the first place.

Exactly. I have persoanl experience of being on a Toni Braxton video set when she was at the apex of her career, and the woman shut down production because she was pissed there was no CHANEL VAMP nail polish to color her nails confused . Had to send a P.A. clear across 2 counties to every mall on the map to track down that polish- meanwhile the clock is ticking and thousands are being wasted, and all because of what? Vanity and an insatiable need to have the in thing at the moment that everyone craved (VAMP was extraordinarily hard to get in its' heyday). Anyone with any degree of sense would have just accepted the YSL /Bobbi Brown version of that shade (as they were already there) and kept it MOVING.

It's also a bit different as Toni wasn't managed by Pebbles, who happened to be married to LA Reid, the head of LaFace at the time

.

I do think LA Reid deserves more criticism in the press as well though. This shouldn't all fall on Pebbles.

.

Anyway, Pebbles also released an official statement to shut down the rumor from that satirical site creambmp.com that she is suing Left Eye's estate:

I was just thinking....this situation was a clear case of conflict of interest: TLC's manager was Pebbles,who was married to the head of their record company,La Face Records.

I remember in early 1980,Donna Summer sued her record company (Casablanca Records) for this same conflict of interest.Her manager was Joyce Bogart,who was married to the head of that record company,Neil Bogart.

These type of situations never really work out.
