TLC's Manager

FURIOUS Over Biopic

I Want Retractions!!!

10/31/2013 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1030_perri-pebbles-reid_tlc_gettyTLC's former manager is LIVID over the new VH1 biopic about the 90s girl group -- telling TMZ, she was wrongly portrayed as a shyster in the movie ... and now she wants the network to make some serious retractions.

Perri "Pebbles" Reid tells us it has taken her more than a week to respond to the movie -- which aired last Monday -- because she was so shell-shocked by the damning lies in the film. She says, "This unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family."

But the real issue -- she tells us, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" contains "many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me."

If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's not exactly kind toward Pebbles ... portraying her as a shifty parasite who knowingly swindled millions from the group.

But the real Pebbles insists she has never cheated anyone -- let alone the band she "discovered, managed, and mentored" -- and plans to vigorously defend her honor. She says her attorney is already in the process of demanding retractions from VH1.

Calls to VH1 weren't returned.

Please Pebbles if you think for one minute anyone is going to believe you, you're a moron. Everyone knows you did those girls wrong and if you ask me they could have made you look a lot worse. Just pray they don't come after you legally.

All these years later, and Pebbles is STILL bitter. That biopic is not too far from the truth. I guess Pebbles can't handle that truth....

I'm not even a music industry expert, but I DO know about her, and what I've heard is not good. The depiction of her in the movie was probably accurate.

Pebbles is THIRSTY! Her last husband, Otis Nixon, must have smoked up the rest of the money they had. No wonder she's a minister now. On to the next hustle.

She is how much older than them, still "sitting pretty" and has a big a$$ ego to go along with it. As if she already didn't get enough from when TLC started out, she still needs to sue to get more. Good job at proving them wrong Pebbles! You don't look money hungry at all by doing this. *rolls eyes*

L.A. Reid/Pebbles also stole Toni Braxton's money and that's why she went bankrupt .

1980's Bay Area Singer    

Pebbles loved the streets, she loved it so much that she was a prostitute before she became a star in Oakland, people are speculating that her son is from someone other than LA, but we will never know they are even claiming that it could be Prince’s son… Read the comments when you click so much drama… … Apparently she cheated on LA with her off and on lover at the time for many years Joe Broadnax, from north oakland. He was a big time dope dealer back then and she reconnected with him and made Tian… But she tried to give LA the credit.

But before that she used to date George Smith they met in 1985 and immediately started an affair with each other while George was still married to his wife Darlene who was terminally ill with cancer. Pebbles and George had a very high-profiled affair which publicly humiliated his family. George Smith was paying all of Pebbles’ bills and staying at the apartment he set up for her. too.. She had not one care in the world.

George Smith’s secretary told his wife about the affair with Pebbles and he still continued to sleep with her. George would leave his office early and stay at Pebbles apartment until wee hours in the morning. It appeared that he felt nothing for his ailing wife. Pebbles moved in with George the night his wife died. Pebbles and George were married the next month which devastated his young daughter. George gave Pebbles the $150,000 ring, furs, money and all of the dead wife’s valuables including her brand new Bentley. George Smith put Pebbles on his payroll at Smith Engineering & Contract Services and she never put in a day’s work or even showed up at the office. He totally neglected his young daughter. George Smith was twenty two years older than Pebbles at the time! Pebbles met L.A. Reid and had an affair with him while still married to George. She eventually left George Smith for Antonio L.A. Reid and that is how she got her record deal.

Where is George now, he eventually went bankrupt and never reached the level of success he had pre-Pebbles. He still lives in the Bay Area and is doing okay financially by a normal persons’ standards.

Pebbles’ claim she found LA in her bedroom with Chilli from TLC, that was when the rift between the two began.. Even though Chilli denies this till this day, but why do they have a contract with LA now ? Kinda weird isn’t it. Nevertheless thanks to her ties her past has been able to be erased. I think tonight will give you a true insight of how she really is and how grimey she is.. Chile she is now married to an attorney who went to Morehouse.. I think he is a youngster… Anyway read the rest over at Here… Even though this was an old story no cared then, but now is a different story..

Pebbles stop lying .. we all know you took three street girls in, made millions off of them and didn't have the decency, as a scam artist, to give the girls an Attorney that wasn't attached to your ass and purse to be with them when they signed their contracts. And Pebbles, "God" is telling you to do the right thing, now go on and admit you scammed them before you burn in your christian hell for lying. By the way, I think the movie was great and I truly believe that TBoz, Chili and Lisa was taken for a ride by Pebbles and all the greedy record executives. Hell, TBoz makes less than 2k in royalties a month still and has been through so many health scares, what the hell reason would she have to lie?

This isn't really all that hard to prove. I say, access public records of Pebbles income for herself, her company (Pebblestone) and LA Reid and Babyface Productions during the time she worked with TLC and then access their (the 3 young ladies of TLC) payment/income and THEN we will see who lied. It is that simple. Produce a paper trail and you will always find the rat.
