T-Boz Targeted By Honda

We're Taking Your Odyssey

5/24/2012 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T-Boz might be forced to travel in the passenger side of her best friend's ride ... 'cause Honda is gunning to repossess the singer's car.

TMZ has learned ... Tionne Watkins is being sued by Honda for failing to make payments on her 2005 Honda Odyssey.

In the lawsuit, filed in Georgia, Honda asks the judge for the green light to take the car back. It's unclear how much T-Boz owes in back payments.  

It's just the latest in a string of financial woes for the 42-year-old singer -- she filed for bankruptcy back in 2011 ... but failed to complete the required paperwork ... and lost the protection bankruptcy provides.

In other words, there's NOTHING stopping T-Boz's creditors from coming after all of her possessions.

We reached out to T-Boz for comment -- so far, no response.

How much can the payment for a 2005 Honda Odyssey be? A 7 year old car and it's still not paid off. This nimrod deserves to lose it.

I hate how people act like the money will never stop coming in. If you have it spend it wisely. And TMZ T-Boz is a singer not a rapper.

I think that this is a mental problem. I was thinking that when you are ghetto or have grown up with nothing and you make it big then you spend uncontrollably, but they have gone down that road before already. We never know her cir***stances and what she must deal with financially in order to survive. When we see her she does not seem to be flashy and all glammed out so we can't say that was the problem. A Honda Accord is sort of cheap for a celebrity. She was just living her life simple as we can guess. I hope she gets her legal papers in order so that she can be left with something and just use her celebrity to make herself comfortable in life again.

Why does TMZ have to publicize the misfortune of others? Why not include yourselves while you're at it?

Actually if you watch the do***entary on Left Eye you will see that they actually made no money after the producers, managers, record companies got their share. I think they only made a million split three ways. Not enough to live out a lifetime.

That is the big issue with this chosen career path. You can be on top of the world one minute, living a lifestyle you never even dreamed of, and you can be old news a few years later. If you did not make many millions and invest it wisely, when your run is over you will have nothing. Then what do you do, because you have been spoiled and never worked a real 9 to 5 job? These so called celebrities don't think about that until the money is gone. TBOZ is not the first and she won't be the last!

T-Boz went through so much. Sickle Cell Anemia and a Brain Tumor, "Because of her disease, Watkins was not expected to have children or live past her 30s". T-Boz beat the odds and finally had her only child (beautiful daughter) with Mack10 and then to go through a terrible divorce. Then to lose a member in the group of TLC, this woman has been through so much.

She has had Sickle Cell Anemia her entire life as well as a brain tumor that she spoke about in recent years. She has such bad bouts with the disease that she has to wear adult diapers and learn how to walk all over again. She had a famous children's clothing store named Chase's Closet which is named after her daughter but had to close it when she became seriously ill. She has continued to work but she owes so much in medical bills. They were never rich to begin with as their manager and label stole most of the money they earned. They had to pay for their own videos, hotels, and clothing while on tour. They only earned about 11 cents on the dollar from each CD sold and, after taxes were paid and expenses, they had to split what was left 3 ways! They were BROKE! Shut up and do some research. Left Eye spoke about it on a special that aired on MTV. It is on YouTube. Also the Wendy Williams interview where TBoz talks about her brain tumor is on YouTube.

After many performances she would have to leave the arena in an ambulance and head to the hospital where she would stay for months because her body was smothered in pain. After the finale of the reality show where they gave the new girl a recording opportunity as well as the Pay Per View concert they did before Lisa died--TBoz performed in complete agony and had to be hospitalized afterward for months.

The same evil people on here will be the same ones "RIP"ing her if she were to drop dead. At least she got out there and tried and has a musical legacy. All you will have is a bunch of uppityf'cked comments with no factual basis!

The Kelly Blue Book value for buying a 2005 Honda Odyssey touring edition, which is the most expensive model, with every option and in Excellent shape is less than $12,000. The next time someone mentions how much money these Rap clowns make, mention T-BOZ and the fact she can't even afford a seven year old used car.
Where's your rapper attitude now T-BOZ? where's all the cars, jewels, clothes and all the other stupid shyte you bought? I guess there's not much call for 42 year has been hiphop Superstar. Maybe you and Superstar Slyvester Stone can share a van?

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!! what is wrong with her you can easily pay cash for a mini van its a 2005 so why couldnt she just get it from a used car lot????????? people should make smarter decision with their money such as saving it or investing it this is a prime example of how to not manage your money the right way.
