TLC’s ex-manager Perri “Pebbles” Reid and Viacom reached a settlement in the $40 million-dollar defamation lawsuit she filed against the company. To review, Pebbles was big mad over her portrayal in VH1's 2013 TLC biopic, “CrazySexyCool.”
According to the docs filed in 2014, the former manager said the film depicted her as a “conniving and dishonest businesswoman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.” Viacom initially tried to get the case dismissed on the grounds that story was told from the perspective of group’s two surviving members, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas.
Reid argued that she never controlled the group’s lawyers or accountants, and never withheld contract terms. She also claims she always paid TLC what they were owed. Ultimately the judge ruled in her favor. Details of settlement agreement have not been released.
