Twitter Drags Pebbles By Her Eyebrows for Cheating TLC

VH1 just finished airing the much-anticipated TLC biopic starring Keke Palmer, Drew Sidora and Lil Mama and it was actually pretty good. I’ll get to that review in my next post though.

I am here because the best thing to come from watching the movie is the wig snatch of Pebbles, TLC’s first manager. She signed them, groomed them but cheated them out of MILLIONS of dollars. In fact, to leave the contract they had signed, they had to pay her $1 million for EACH letter in their group name. TLC paid this woman $3 million for their freedom. Chile…

The woman knew how to get her money but she screwed them royally in the process. Cunning businesswoman, bad ethics and all the monies.

Pebbles

So Twitter, being the awesome platform it is, allowed many people to air their disdain for Pebbles’ greed. Folks have snatched her wig and left her looking like a proverbial naked mole rat. The roast below is what happened and is still happening. I will be updating it for the next couple of hours, so getchu a piece.

BUT lemme say that A LOT of people are saying REALLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY evil things about this lady. And those dusty degenerates need to sit the hell down. I didn’t include those tweets here.

If for some reason you can’t view the tweets below, check it out on Storify.

We are all so very touched by this it seems. Her mentions look like bombs over Baghdad. She should just delete her Twitter account and not look back for at least a week.

Whatchu think Pebbles needs to do right about now?

    Twitter has no mercy sometimes. She did ‘em dirty and all these young’uns who didn’t know are finding out. And the rest of us who’re like…18 and over, we already know. We done said our piece and went back to our glasses of wine. All I need her to do is fix that Twitter description.

    She needs to own up to her actions and stop hiding behind God while proceeding to sue TLC for MORE of their money! This is their story, which they have every right to tell. They’ve earned it. Some people just can’t let others have their moment in the spotlight without hating.

    TLC didn’t paint themselves as angels either, so you know the story is probably accurate. Pebbles did them dirty but she was far from the only one. That’s how the business was, is and will continue to be, especially for young women.

    Miley Cyrus: take notice. This is what Sinead O’Connor was trying to tell you. The business cares nothing about its slaves–I mean stars.

      I agree with you, but Miley is in a different boat. She has that Hannah Montana money. Bitch will never have to worry about finances.

    I think Perri “Pebbles” Reid public image has fallen victim to some facets of sexism and gender stereotypes. She was a stern, no-nonsense businesswoman who profited from her artists utilizing practices similar to those of Berry Gordy, P Diddy, Babyface, & LA Reid… yet they receive little-to-no flack for robbing their artists blind. They’re seen as smart businessmen. Conversely, she’s seen as an unyielding bitch.

      Yeah I call Bs on that. All of those men(with the exception of BabyFace) got called out for the same practices she got called out for. People stay saying Puffy and LA are shady. Also I have never heard anything about Babyface being dirty.

      You’re not wrong, E. I do think Pebbles is also getting reamed as much as he is because of the “Bitchy Businesswoman” Trope. However, I wouldn’t say that LA Reid hasn’t caught flack for his Aint Shit behavior in the past. And Berry Gordy has too. It’s just not spotlighted right now. I think we need to see them being trifling in a biopic too so Twitter can go in and let have!

      No one talks about P. Diddy? Have you seen the black hole that any artist he signs disappears into, never to be seen again?

      But I think the biggest thing is Twitter wasn’t as big then. Let another Making the Band come on or the Motown Story and I guarantee folks will be even get their taco meat snatched. Pebbles suffers from the proliferation of social media…and it doesn’t help that she’s claiming innocence.

        While I understand where E.Reed is coming from, I have to side with Luvvie and That Dude. Diddy gets TONSSSSS of shade all the time. Don’t y’all remember when Twitter JUST started getting hot amongst celebrities, and there was that whole “#UnfollowDiddy” trend that was popular after that comedian Maronzio Vance released that video “Puffy Is Poison” on Youtube. Here’s the link: http://youtu.be/2Z3bLRPOlrw

        And it became a huge trend – and Puffy was obviously hurt by it.

        So, yes – she is getting most of the shade TODAY, but trust and believe, Puffy and others have gotten (and still get) their fair share of roasts as well.

    It just goes to show you that there is some truth in “chickens coming home to roost!” AND “A hit dog will holler” Those girls aren’t lying on her, it was actually worst than what was portrayed in the movie, tyrant isn’t the word for her. The really sad thing is that she even started a ministry and treated those people the same way. She hired assistants and didn’t pay them, she used them and treated them like servants. They all actually found Jesus and fled. And that’s when a lot of people figured out she really is a fraud and no one cares that the false prophetess is mad.

      Pebbles doesn’t have the heart or caring-type personality to lead anyone, even in ministry. She is a pretender, a dictator and a tyrant indeed. She’s romanced several musicians who taught her the cruel ways of the music industry. The ministry was started so she would avoid paying taxes on her millions. It’s called hiding under the financial umbrella in ministry.

    It is interesting to relive all of this with Twitter as a supporting character. I remember when Left Eye gave everyone the math of their situation. They were never shy about what happened. They told anyone that would listen that they were broke.

    I watched MTV all day every day, so not only were the songs nostalgic, the news behind the scenes was as well.

    Maybe now the youngins will better understand why Prince did all that he did writing slave on his cheek and changing his name to the symbol until he was legally able to get his name and his Master tracks back.

    As for Pebbles if women want to be viewed as equal in the workplace then you are held to the same standards of shaming when you are absolutely wrong. In this case she made millions off of those young girls and STILL claims she did nothing wrong. I don’t have an issue as much as what she did back then as it was industry standard but moreso that she refuses to even apologize while professing to be a preacher. No bueno.

  17. […] was the Grinch of the TLC story, having cheated them out of millions with a trifling contract (read Twitter’s Pebbles roast for cackles). Yes, it might have been industry standard, but for you to sell 10 million records and […]

    Ya’ll forgot the best part: TLC wasn’t EVEN Pebbles idea. It was on Ryan Cameron. She screwed the founder out of the concept because that poor girl wanted her mother to look over that BS of a contract before she signed.
