Dallas Austin Says He ‘Wanted To Kill Everybody’ When Chilli Moved On To Usher Following Their Relationship
Music producer Dallas Austin recently sat down for an interview with Angela Yee and shared how hard it was for him when he learned his ex-girlfriend Chilli had moved on to Usher. Dallas Austin and TLC member Chilli, born Rozonda Thomas, dated in the 90s, and after they broke up she started a relationship with Usher. During Dallas Austin’s time on the series Established with Angela Yee, he was asked if he was mad when Chilli started dating Usher following their own romantic relationship. The Grammy-Award winning producer didn’t seem to hold anything back in his answer. According to Dallas Austin, he ‘wanted to kill everybody’ when he found out who his ex was dating. He said,
“I wanted to kill everybody. Because obviously, I was friends with Usher too and it was just one of those things where, you know, it was…we like… we two different people, we always have been in that sense. And I feel like when… it actually was crazy because I moved to Miami. And I was just all fed up. ‘I got to get out of Atlanta I’m just too fed up things are going to crazy’ so I moved to Miami I set up in the house. Me and [Chilli] first broke up then.”
He continued and said after he left Atlanta for Miami he tried to get back together with Chilli but by then it was a little too late.
“By the time I called and said ‘hey, you know what, let’s be together in Miami’ she was like ‘no no no that’s a wrap I’m done.’”
Dallas Austin also shared that he initially thought that year was the worst year of his life, but looking back now, he can see how wrong he was.
“Well I’m thinking this is the worst year because then she goes- she started dating Usher and I’m going mad because I’m like ‘hold on I’ve got to kill this…that’s my girl, my kid, this, that, and the other.’”
“So I went through this whole year of thinking that it was the worst year of my life when really I did all the Pink songs at that time. ‘It Was Just Like A Pill’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’ and all that was about the relationship I was in. I did Blu Cantrell, I did Drumline. And all this stuff was going on and I feel like I almost had blinders on because I was in that place that everybody gets to when you’re going through that breakup where it’s just painful.”
Things between Dallas Austin and Chilli didn’t work out but they did welcome their son, Tron Austin, into the world on June 2, 1997. The pair seem to be friends and co-parenting well together.
