“He watched Chilli intensely and lovingly as the group performed, then couldn’t keep his hands off her backstage,” sources told the New York Daily News. ” It should be noted that neither Nick nor Chilli has officially confirmed or denied any developments in their friendship.

Witnesses told the New York Daily News that the "America's Got Talent" host was getting "hot and heavy" with TLC member Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas at a Rochester concert over the weekend.But in 1995, on their way to selling more than 10 million copies of the disc, the group’s members filed for bankruptcy, alleging they had a bad contract with La Face and their manager — Pebbles, aka, Perri Reid, wife of L. — that netted each of them barely more than ,000 from ’s profits.(The case was made that TLC’s financial issues were thanks to Left Eye’s fire incident and T-Boz’s medical bills — more on those later.) The group didn’t seem so crazy in their theory when, just a few years later, Toni Braxton filed for bankruptcy, much for the same reasons as TLC, though they each apparently renegotiated their contracts prior to the release of 2000’s , Left Eye had been dating Atlanta Falcons player Andre Rison. In retaliation, Left Eye allegedly burned some of Rison’s possessions in a bathtub, only to have the fire travel and burn down his mansion.During its decade of dominance, La Face saw plenty of glory: TLC became the biggest-selling girl group of all-time; Toni Braxton won back-to-back Grammys; and Usher racked up No. Perhaps, then, it’s not surprising that after years of being built up, the label’s roster and accomplices have been brought down by some of the most dramatic moments in R&B history.Matters of Money When TLC released their second album, the modern classic , Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were ubiquitous mainstays of award shows, video outlets and radio.In the 1990s, few R&B-oriented record labels held a candle to the success of La Face.
