The TLC Biopic did massive numbers and had a mostly favorable response from viewers, but there’s also been some highly-publicized backlash from TLC’s former manager Pebbles in the midst of all the praise.
Both TLC and Pebbles have been very vocal about their thoughts on the movie and Chilli recently spoke with The Jasmine Brand about the latest shade from Pebbles’ daughter while also addressing the widely-asked question of why Usher was left out of the biopic.
Check out a few interview excerpts below:
On criticism from Pebble’s Daughter:
You know what? I don’t know – To be honest with you – I’ve been so caught up in thanking God with the blessings; with the success of this film. All the other stuff or half of the stuff that I don’t see – I’ll hear about it like from you or someone’s going to say something to me.
We just felt we put out our relationship with her because that’s who we had the relationships with, that’s who we had those experiences with was Pebbles; not her children. And we’ve always had love for them – I’ve known them since they were babies. They were little so they weren’t even able to comprehend what was going on between us and their mom because they were children. So I don’t know.
I really don’t have anything to say about the kids or anything like that, besides the fact that I hope they’re doing well and understand them being upset because everybody loves their mom. You just love your mother. But at the same time, at the end of the day, this is what happened between TLC and her. We didn’t make up these things. We just did not. Why would we do that?
It seems like most of the general public is riding with TLC’s side of the story on this one. Who do you believe in all of this, Bossip fam?
Chilli also gave a detailed response to Usher being left out of the biopic and clapped back at Lisa’s sister Reigndrop, accusing her of being attention-thirsty. Hit the flip to hear what she had to say.
