Fans have been duped by a concert promoter in San Jose that sold tickets for a TLC performance. It was alleged the Grammy award winning group would hit the stage to perform “Waterfalls,” “No Scrubs,” and “Creep,” but the gig turned out to be a fraud.
T-Boz clarified the situation tweeting, “TLC is NOT doing a show in San Jose DON’T BUY TIX!” She added: “I’ve told ya’ll how people lie yawl are seeing it first hand. That show is a LIE!”
This year also marks the 10th anniversary that surviving members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas will mark the tragic loss of their friend and band mate Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes, who in 2002, was killed in a car crash in Honduras.
VH1 is gearing up to begin production on a movie about the chart-topping group, which is set to air later this year.
“It’s going to be like a movie-of-the-week on VH1. You know how the Jackson Five have the movie The Jackson Five: An American Dream? It would be like that,” said Chilli.
She continued elaborating on the casting for the film, “I want to go for someone unknown to play us. I really would prefer to reach out and find someone that resembles us and who really has the acting chops and who can dance.”
