Pebbles’s $40 Mill TLC Biopic Lawsuit – Chilli, T-Boz, LA Reid, Babyface Listed As Witnesses In Trial
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Pebbles (real name Perri Reid) is not letting up with her lawsuit over the TLC biopic that aired on VH1. The former manager of the hit group filed new docs in the $40 million lawsuit.
Here’s the latest: Pebbles lists the witnesses she will call to testify on the stand in the upcoming trial. She lists herself, Chilli, T-Boz, her ex-husband L.A. Reid and Babyface ( real name Kenneth Edmonds). All of the persons listed could be called to the stand to testify in the trial and there’s a possibility that they could be grilled about what they know about Pebbles relationship with TLC, and whether they believe the group was screwed out of money by her and their opinion on the VH1 biopic.
Here’s the backstory: Pebbles – TLC’s former manager – sued Viacom for $40 million claiming she was defamed by how TV movie “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story“ portrayed her. Pebbles explained in docs that the film showed her,
As a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.
Further, she said that contrary to what the film showed, she never controlled the groups lawyers and always paid the girls what they were due.
Viacom fired back at the accusations they defamed Pebbles. In the docs ,they state that based on their knowledge, the portrayal of Pebbles was accurate and they did not act with malice when making the film. They demanded her $40 million dollar lawsuit be dismissed.
T-Boz & Chili were then dragged into the $40 million lawsuit over the VH1 movie and their former manager Pebbles filed docs stating she was going to depose the girls and grill them about the film and how they portrayed her in the movie.
The case had been pending for over a year with both sides battling it out.
