Tboz is bankrupt
T-Boz ain't too proud to beg -- just like TLC sang back in the 90s -- because she's filed for bankruptcy.

According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 -- mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.

The docs don't paint a picture of exorbitant spending -- she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.

TLC had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards ... but according to the docs, T-Boz only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties.

T-Boz might have dodged the bankruptcy bullet if she'd been able to collect the child support she claims she's owed -- which according to the docs is $250,000.

Calls to her attorney were not returned.

Some people on here don't have sense at all. The woman suffers from a brain tumor and is a single parent. She also battles sickel cell disease. She has paid her dues and continues to obviously. Most of these artist are schemed out of their riches anyway.

T-Boz you have made enough money in your career to buy 10 million dollar homes. Why you have not paid for a house in GA is a sad mystery. You dumb female rappers have no business sense at all. Now you can't leave your children a dime or pot to piss in.

You do know that she has sickle cell a serious medical condition that has had her in dire straits numerous times over the years and most of her expenses are medical related right? So, stop with the stereotyping. Healthcare is expensive.
