TLC tells Pebbles, Crystal Jones to ‘get over’ biopic portrayals
Since the acclaimed TLC biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, premiered this past Monday, the girl group’s former manager, Pebbles, and their ex-member, Crystal Jones, have both voiced their disdain over the biopic, saying it falsely paints them in a negative light.
Although the surviving members of TLC have previously taken the high road when it comes ot dealing with their former associates, T-Boz and Chilli are now saying that Pebbles and Jones just need to “get over it” and let their old issues go.
This week, T-Boz and Chilli stopped by V-103 Atlanta’s “The Big Tigger Show” and Chilli vented her growing frustrations over Jones’ gripes.
“So Crystal, I would be mad if I got kicked out of my own group too and TLC blew up. I would have some harbored feelings so I understand her, so sorry,” T-Boz said.
“She put out our movie, trying to sabotage it with a code and put it on the internet. It’s no need for all that. I’ve apologized for the way things went down,” said T-Boz, before lamenting Jones’ unceremonious exit from the group. “I did bring Pebbles to the table. The way me and Lisa handled it may have not been the best, but I’m not, at 43, after saying sorry, gonna talk about some mess.”
T-Boz then sent out a message to anyone who’s mad about their biopic. “All these scorned heffas need to get over it. Pray about it and grow. Like, get over it!” she said.
T-Boz also shared some critical words for Pebbles as well. “The one thing you can’t take from her, we’ve always said, she helped us out so much. She did a lot for our career and that you can’t take. But if you’re telling a story and it’s even 20 years ago, you can’t tell someone how they’re perceived situations from their end, how they felt. That doesn’t take away the good that you did. We’re telling a story of what happened when we were 19 and 20 years old. No, I didn’t appreciate paying a million dollars per name. There are certain things we don’t have to like. You move on from certain people. I’m not a bitter person. I let things go and I move on,” said T-Boz.
Well, clearly TLC isn’t budging on their stance, regardless of whether or not Pebbles or Jones sue them for slander.
