Just about two weeks ago, VH1 and TLC shook up the music world after they released "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" for all of the world to see. We saw what happened with the groups rise and fall through the eyes of Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins.
Left Eye was also portrayed from their perspective, and so was Perri "Pebbles" Reid who was not too pleased. She has been slammed by fans on the social networking sites and even had her daughter come to her defense by sending out a threat to Chilli.
The former singer and record executive released an open letter informing the media and VH1 staff about how she felt and what was to come. She feels that she's a victim of defamation. She released the statement on her official website. Peep her letter below!
Read Pebbles’s response below:
First I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. I apologize for the delay in responding to the movie, but I wanted to gather my thoughts. I have always been a private person and this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family. I have needed time to spend with my family and for personal reflection.
The movie contains many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me. Please know that I have never cheated or mislead anyone. I will defend my reputation, accomplishments, and character. My attorney is in the process of demanding a retraction of the false and defamatory statements and scenes about me from VH1.
My silence has empowered individuals looking for a payday at my expense. I have held my peace for 20 years and it’s time the truth comes out. I will be sharing my story in the appropriate venue at the appropriate time. With all my heart I thank you for your faithful support.
I am extremely proud of the success and massive accomplishments of TLC—the group I discovered, managed, and mentored. I helped push open doors for TLC and other women in this male dominated industry.
My sacrifices ultimately opened the door for not only a new wave of female performers in this industry but also a new generation of female executives. That backdrop makes the movie extremely personally upsetting to me.
She appears to be hurt. Bu can much be done if a story is being said from someone's perspective? I mean, I don't think they made her to look as BAD as she really was. I personally didn't see anything negative about the situation and honestly, what will her story do to rectify the situation? Absolutely nothing. So she can save it. No one but probably Wendy Williams will book her.
