TLC Gets Dropped from Epic Records over Pebbles Reid Beef? Chilli Speaks
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
TLC was all set for a comeback considering their VH1 biopic “CrazySexyCool” was a smash hit and the film actually gave their album sales a big time boost. Although they had lots of drama with LA Reid and his ex-wife Pebbles, the group decided to sign another record deal with the music executive. In fact, the group was supposed to be dropping a new album in 2014. But now it appears that their ongoing beef with Pebbles over how she was portrayed in the biopic may have caused them their record deal.
According to Pop Dust, TLC appears to have been dropped from Epic Records. The group’s fan site noticed first that the group is no longer listed on the artist roster on the label’s official website. It also appears that they have taken Epic Records off of their Facebook fan page and official website.
Many are already speculating that the recent move by Epic Records is most likely a result of all the drama that’s been going down with Pebbles. And it didn’t help that Pebbles got on “the Wendy Williams Show” and said she believed Chilli slept with LA Reid while they were married.
It’s possible LA Reid also doesn’t want to have any parts of the pending legal battle that will most likely go down between the group and his ex-wife as well.
Either way, there’s been no official confirmation yet from Epic Records or TLC that they have parted ways, but by the looks of the label’s website, it sure does look that way. However, Chilli told a fan not to be so quick to believe the reports. She tweets (read from top to bottom):
We’ll just have to see if TLC’s camp releases a statement soon.
