Health Stricken TLC Member T-Boz Files For Bankruptcy

Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins, of the multi-platinum selling R&B group TLC, continues to tackle obstacles in her personal life. According to TMZ, Watkins filed documents in a Bankruptcy Court last month, which revealed that she owes creditors $768,642, mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million home.

Currently it is unclear why Watkins made the move to Bankruptcy Court since documents show her monthly expenses at roughly $8,821 and income at $11,700/month. But according to the 41-year-old, she could have avoided filing if she was able to collect $250,000 in back child support payments.

In addition, with the millions of albums sold from four multi-platinum albums with TLC, Watkins says she only makes $1,200/month in royalties.

As Singersroom previously reported, Watkins has been battling Sickle Cell Anemia, an incurable blood disorder that leaves people exhausted and in constant pain, in addition to side effects from a treated brain tumor.

Watkins is currently working on a new album.
