TLC singer Tionne “T Boz” Watkins has filed for bankruptcy!
The 41-year-old singer filed the documents in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, after finding that she owed creditors a huge sum. The figure is over $750 million and was mostly accrued from mortgages on her $1.2 million property.
The docs don’t paint a picture of exorbitant spending — she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.
TLC had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards … but according to the docs, T-Boz only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties.
T-Boz might have dodged the bankruptcy bullet if she’d been able to collect the child support she claims she’s owed — which according to the docs is $250,000.
She shares an eleven-year-old daughter named Chase with rapper Mack 10. In 2004, she filed for divorce and requested a restraining order against him.
This isn’t the first of her troubles. She had been diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia, along with discovering that she had a brain tumor that she’d been battling for three years.
Hope things get better for her. TLC was a huge R&B group back in the day. I ain’t ashamed to say it, Waterfalls was my jam.
