Ex-Manager on TLC’s CrazySexyCool Biopic: “It Was a Complete Lie”


Last month, TLC‘s former manager, Perri “Pebbles” Reid, expressed her frustrations via Twitter over her portrayal in the biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, which premiered on VH1 in October.  Now, Reid has appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to defend herself and tell her side of the story.

“It was a complete lie,” she told Wendy during her visit to the show on Wednesday. “It was laughable some of the stuff. It was just so over the top.”

In the movie, Reid is portrayed as an unethical manger who stole millions of dollars from the group with a recording contract that later caused the trio to file for bankruptcy.

“How would you feel if you were being portrayed as something you’re not? And you’re not being portrayed as who you are, a visionary,” she said.

At one point in the film, the TLC members are shown being given $25 a week after they went platinum. However, Reid claims that information also was false.

“I don’t do $25 on things. I’m a very generous person. That’s a lie, a huge one,” she says.  She adds the girls wanted Toyota RAV4s and explained they could not afford more expensive cars. “You don’t have Ferrari money,” she said, “Why get you one?”

Pebbles also denies kicking Chilli out of the group and instead saying that it was T-Boz and Left Eye who wanted her out after Chilli began dating producer Dallas Austin. “They did not like it,” she said. “They did not want it. It is the truth.”

The only thing that was true in the film is the fact that she wore Chanel bags, Reid added. “The supposed true story is not true and VH1 will be hearing from me,” she concluded.
