Pebbles Said Chilli Had An Affair With Music Mogul L.A. Reid
TLC’s Chili says she NEVER slept with L.A. Reid – the ex-husband to the band’s former manager Pebbles – and says that all the rumors of her having an affair with the music mogul behind Pebbles back are pure lies.
Perri Reid aka 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 bands lawyers and always paid the girls what they were due.
Viacom fired back at the allegations 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 and Chili were then dragged into the lawsuit recently over the VH1 movie, and their former manager Pebbles filed docs stating she was going to depose the women and grill them about the film and how they portrayed her in the movie.
Then on September 23rd, Chili’s deposition in the case was filed in which she states under oath she NEVER had an affair with Pebbles then-husband L.A. Reid.
Pebbles has publicly stated following the release of the film that she believes Chili was sleeping with her then-husband music mogul L.A. Reid behind her back. The former TLC manager told Wendy Williams that she never wanted to believe it for years but she now says she believes it to be true, but said she wouldn’t reveal why she thinks this to be accurate. Pebbles also said that she thinks T-Boz and Left Eye were aware of the alleged affair.
However, according to Chili’s sworn testimony under oath, she says she never slept with Pebbles ex-husband. She explains that she heard the rumors about her and L.A. for years but never thought much of it because it was so crazy.
She says that the story of Pebbles walking in on her in bed with L.A. is so ridiculous because she was never once alone with L.A. at his home.
Chili says that following the passing of Left Eye, T-Boz, Pebbles and her became somewhat close again. She explains that Pebbles and her had a conversation about everything around that time. During the conversation the topic of her sleeping with L.A. came up and she told Pebbles straight up it wasn’t true and none of the girls had been intimate with him whatsoever.
The singer says she asked Pebbles if she believed her and she told Chili she did. Then Chili claims the band’s former manager apologized to her for things she had done over the years.
Chili says that if anyone should be suing it should be her filing a lawsuit against Pebbles for defaming her character in the press by insinuating she slept with L.A. Reid. The singer then says that Pebbles told T-Boz that the reason she believed the affair did happen was because God told her that it did.
Chili ends the conversation about the rumors by stating, “You know, I would never sleep with somebody’s husband. That’s disgusting.”
