TLC Biopic ‘CrazySexyCool’ Sparks Lawsuit Threat From Pebbles

Pebble threatens to sue for defamation over TLC biopic Perri “Pebbles” Reid is obviously still angry with the surviving members of TLC and when she saw the way she was depicted in their biopic, “CrazySexyCool,” she went on a short Twitter rant and promised to file a lawsuit. Meanwhile, the Twitterverse has clearly picked sides and Pebbles is going to have a hard time finding anyone to support her with this legal battle.

TLC’s biopic was all the Twitterverse talked about as the VH1 movie aired Monday night.

Anyone who saw the film could already tell that Pebbles wasn’t going to be very happy about her portrayal, although both Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas believe her character depiction was  accurate.

Back in the ’90s when TLC went platinum after selling 23 million copies of “CrazySexyCool” worldwide,  they should have been rolling in cash and living lavishly. Instead, they were filing for bankruptcy and they claimed that Pebbles was the reason for the financial strife.

“I am in shock listening to all this mess and lies on this radio interview,” Pebbles tweeted after the two surviving members of TLC sat down for a radio interview with “The Breakfast Club.” “This is madness!! It’s SO hard to believe this! DO NOT believe.”

She immediately began making promises that she would take legal action, which has everyone expecting a defamation of character lawsuit will surface soon.

The good news is Twitter was there to make sure that there was humor mixed in with the shade-throwing madness.

After seeing how Pebbles’ character bossed the girls around in the movie, Twitter users warmed up their keyboards and went in.

“Pebbles got this TLC biopic looking like ’12 years a slave,’ ” one tweet read.

Another user wrote: “Pebbles contracts = Sallie Mae.”

Unfortunately for Pebbles that was just the beginning of the social media roasting.

“Why you got TLC in your bio like you aint pay them in trident layers??? @pebbles2day,” user @Muse_Rebel tweeted directly to Pebbles.

Other users commented on just how heartless Pebbles appeared to be.

“U charged Lisa for passin away or naw? @pebbles2day,” user @SpikeReed wrote.

TLC biopic inspires hilarious memes about Pebbles Of course, Twitter couldn’t resist featuring the young man who has become the face of one of the most frequently used memes of all times.

“Pebbles when TLC asked to see their contracts,” one user wrote before inserting a picture of a young man awkwardly looking away from the camera as if he has no answer.

Pebbles then responded with a tweet of her own in which she referenced Proverbs.

“He who states his case first seems right, until his rival comes and cross-examines him,” she tweeted.

With threats by Pebbles to take legal action we certainly haven’t seen the last of this feud – or the Twitter jokes to go along with it.

  1. OK KO EM

  2. I don't even think pepples was portrayed in a bad way that's just the business and TLC knows that people are taking things way out of hand. At the end of the day they signed the contract. People make mistakes. When you get older you will reflect and be wiser. Now they know the business and can tell their story to help others. Pepples just did her job yea she did some messed up things but it was her investing in them in the beginning. When they realized that she didn't have their best interest at heart they parted ways

  3. I was hoping Pebbles would continue to keep a low profile considering her evangelism and all. I figured she would be over the past by now but I see she is still worried about "Pebbles" instead of worrying about Jesus and "Sister Perri". I'm happy that she is serving Jesus but I really wish that she would let all this go. Heck, everyone needs to let go and move on, including Tionne and Roz.
