VH-1′s TLC biopic is the gossip gift that keeps on giving.
In an appearance on ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’ Perri “Pebbles” Reid fired back at the depiction of her in the film. She also said that she believes Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas was having an affair with her ex-husband, L.A. Reid, and that, perhaps most explosively, she didn’t kick Chilli out of the group as the biopic claimed. But Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins did.
Read partial transcript below via Necole Bitchie:
On if she removed Chilli from TLC
[I] Absolutely [did] not [kick Chilli out of the group]. T-Boz and Left Eye did. [They kicked her out] because of what they said was happening in the studio. That [Chilli dating Dallas] was the conflict of interest. This is what they said to me, ‘She’s in here doing this and doing that.’ They have group rules. I sat them down 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.’ You have three girls. You gotta keep them together. You’re supposed to not [fraternize with the help.] Everybody is going to gravitate, hell, I married my producer. That was love. But what I’m saying is this, they did not like it, they did not want it. And it is the truth.
On if she believes Chilli was sleeping with L.A. Reid behind her back:
Absolutely. I didn’t know. I suspected a couple of things, but I didn’t want to believe that. And for years, I didn’t want to believe that because I felt like they were daughters to me. I am going to write my book and put it in there, but believe me when I say, I saw a couple of things.
On if she ever caught Chilli and L.A. Reid having sex:
Let me explain something to you, I would’ve caught a case, had I seen something like that back then.
On if Left Eye and T-Boz knew about the affair:
I believe so. Chile, you gon’ have to ask them. All I know is what it produced.
On if she paid TLC $25 per week:
I don’t do $25 on things. I’m a very generous person. That’s a lie… a huge one.
On buying the girls RAV4s
In terms of the RAV4, that’s what you asked for, that’s what you wanted, fine. 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. Uh, I went platinum too. First new artist contracts, you do promotional tours. You do opening act tours. That’s not Ferrari money, honey. You just got here. You only had a couple of singles out.
See Pebbles on Wendy in the video.
As previously reported by NewsOne, in an appearance on her brother Aaron Reid‘s Ustream radio show, “Reid All About It,” Ashley Reid also accused Chilli of having an affair with her father and expanded on a threat she issued the singer on Twitter on October 21.
