VH1 Admit TLC Movie Was A 'Fictionalized Portrayal'

(Radio.com) Pebbles is feeling pretty vindicated thanks to a statement VH1 made about their recent TLC biopic, Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story. She was so happy in fact, that she released a press release about it via Twitlonger.

Pebbles, who was the group's manager from 1991 to 1995, has claimed that she is unfairly portrayed in the film. "The movie contains many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me," she wrote in a statement posted on her personal website (via Huffington Post). "Please know that I have never cheated or mislead anyone. I will defend my reputation, accomplishments, and character."

Immediately after the movie, which is told from the perspective of the group's three members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, aired last month, Reid's attorneys demanded a retraction of the statements and scenes in the TV movie that included her likeness.

At the time, VH1 declined to retract the statements, claiming that the TLC movie was "not meant to be a recitation of true events." Something Pebbles questioned, claiming the network promoted the film as a true story.

Now VH1 has changed their stance on the biopic, saying that "the movie is a fictionalized portrayal of the development of TLC as told from the perspective of the members." more on this story
