TLC’s ex-manager, Perri “Pebbles” Reid, is claiming that the biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story was full of lies and ruined her reputation. So of course, she has filed a lawsuit claiming defamation and seeking $40 million

Reports TMZ:

TLC‘s ex-manager is a conniving, dishonest businesswoman who hoodwinked 3 innocent girls — that’s how it looked in a TV movie about the group … and the ex-manager is now gunning for justice.

Perri “Pebbles” Reid claims in a new lawsuit … the TV flick, “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” assassinated her character by portraying her as a liar and a cheat, when actually she invested her time and money as TLC’s manager and created one of the best-selling female groups of all time.

Pebbles says the film falsely depicts her as pressuring Chilli to get an abortion … pushing T-Boz to put the group ahead of her health … and doling out a measly $25/wk for the girls.

Reid says the film — which first aired a year ago and several times since — destroyed her reputation, and she’s suing for $40 million.

We’d love to see how much money in total Reid made off of TLC, compared to how much money the members of the group received. Just saying.
