Tse Williams, the former manager of the now split group 3LW, is airing out former group members Adrienne Bailon and Naturi Naughton.
[3LW enjoyed a number of modest hits during the early 2000s. Its founding members were Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams, and Naturi Naughton. Jessica Benson later replaced Naughton after she left the group in 2002. 3LW was signed to the label Epic Records, and later moved to So So Def.]
There was a lot of drama when Naturi left the group in 2002. The ‘Power’ actress says that she was forced out of the group and was often treated unfairly. At the time, she explained about the situation:
There was an argument between me and Michelle [Williams]. And Kiely and Adrienne [Bailon, the group’s third member,] are cursing me out, and before I know it, Kiely throws her plate of food all in my face — mashed potatoes, macaroni all in my hair, down my clothes, messing up my [hair]do! Nobody has the right to hit me. That’s not what I’m here for, … to be physically abused. So I said, ‘Get me a flight back to Newark, New Jersey,’ and they wouldn’t even help me get a ticket
Fast forward to the present day and Naturi appeared on The Real and Adrienne apologized publicly about what happened years ago. See the clip of the two discussing the situation below.
Tse, who managed the group and is also Kiely’s mother responded on social media, calling out both Naturi and Adrienne. Tse says that the Cheetah Girls ended because Disney pulled the plug when nude photos of Adrienne leaked. She also alleges that one of the girls were sleeping with married men for years. Check out the tweets below.
Naturi nor Adrienne have yet to respond to Tse’s comments.
