TLC’s Chilli: Usher’s Confessions Not About Me, Talks Relationship

Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas says Usher's Diamond-selling album, "Confessions," is not at all about her or their relationship.

"We were together when he recorded that album. All of those songs on Confessions, that was about Jermaine Dupri‘s situation. Usher was just singing it. But people kind of bought into it, it was just the timing of our breakup when the album came out. So people assumed that album was about us, but it was not. And Usher and I weren’t oil and water," Chilli told US Weekly. "We broke up because I guess it was that time or whatever, he was that real love for me."

Contrary to rumors about her being the reason for Usher and Tameka Raymond's initial break up, Chilli says that was not the case.

"In any relationship, even when it came to my relationship with Usher, when it was time to make a move, I had to do that. I don’t care how much my heart was hurting, sometimes you’re just supposed to be with people for a reason and it’s not always a lifetime. Even if you want it to be, it just doesn’t work out that way," said Chilli. "I didn’t have anything to do with it and I was very far away from it. I wasn’t a part of any of that kind of stuff. Our relationship was never like that. That’s his story."

As previously reported, TLC is back in the studio working on new music. They recently released a greatest hits collection with new songs and also earned recording ratings and viewership with Monday's premiere of "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story."
