When The Checks Stop Coming In: TLC’s T-Boz Files For Bankruptcy!

- By Bossip Staff

We’re sure someone can help her. What about her friends???

According to TMZ reports:

T-Boz ain’t too proud to beg — just like TLC sang back in the 90s — because she’s filed for bankruptcy.

According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 — mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.

The docs don’t paint a picture of exorbitant spending — she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.

TLC had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards … but according to the docs, T-Boz only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties.

T-Boz might have dodged the bankruptcy bullet if she’d been able to collect the child support she claims she’s owed — which according to the docs is $250,000.

Calls to her attorney were not returned.

All jokes aside, we hope that T-Boz is able to get her money situation under control. It’s always sad to see someone who had so much success be under financial duress.
