T-Boz and Chilli appears to have awakened a sleeping lion when they decided to portray their former manager Peri “Pebbles” Reid as a cold-hearted bitch in their VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool.. Even though the portrayal of Reid in the movie comes from TLC’s own personal opinion of her and their general recollection of how the crazy events of their past relationship with her played out, Pebbles still feels as though she was slandered on a major scale and she want’s the ladies to cough of some serious cash because of it.
Viacom stated in their own documents that they way Pebbles was portrayed in the movie was, indeed, accurate, and there was no harm made in her portrayal in the film, the company urged that the lawsuit be dismissed. Pebbles (real name Perri Reid) didn’t think that was necessary and decided to have T-Boz and Chilli served with subpoenas on September 30. The papers “demand” that they hand over any discussions about Pebbles.
She also is demanding from them – any docs between them and the network regarding scenes or statements in the film that they claimed were inaccurate, the script outline for the film, all documents about scenes involving Pebbles specifically scenes where they portrayed her to be manipulating the group out of money, her alleged reaction to T-Boz’s health issues and anything related to the group’s record contracts. -BlackAmericaWeb
