Ever since the VH1 biopic “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” aired in 2013, Pebbles has been adamant about fighting back against what she calls an inaccurate portrayal of the events that led to the bankruptcy of the popular R&B trio, and she’s STILL at it.
According to Page Six, last week, a federal judge in Atlanta allowed Peri “Pebbles” Reid’s $40 million defamation lawsuit against Viacom to proceed after Viacom tried to stop it.
Reid’s lawyer Stacey Godfrey Evans told Page Six, “We are thrilled with this major win against Viacom and look forward to justice . . . Ms. Reid worked hard to ensure the success of TLC, and she is ready to present that story to a jury. The negative portrayal of her in the TLC movie is simply not the truth.”
Viacom also released a statement to Page Six: “‘CrazySexyCool’ was a docudrama about the experiences of the members of TLC told from their perspective. We are confident that our First Amendment rights to tell this story will ultimately be vindicated, although we are disappointed that the court chose not to dismiss the entire case on summary judgment.”
Hard to believe this is STILL going on…
