In an appearance on her brother Aaron Reid‘s Ustream radio show, “Reid All About It,” Ashley Reid accused Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC of having an affair with her father L.A. Reid and expanded on a threat she issued the singer on Twitter on October 21.
As previously reported by NewsOne, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story aired Monday, October 21 and scored 4.5 million viewers, breaking the record for most watched original cable movie in 2013. Perri “Pebbles” Reid was depicted throughout the film as jealous, vindictive and manipulative and her daughter Ashley vented her frustration and anger on Twitter — threatening Chilli in the process.
At the time, Ashley told a Twitter follower that she didn’t intend the statement to be a threat, but she changed that story during the Ustream segment, which, not surprisingly, has since been removed, and also accused her of being intimate with her father L.A. Reid:
When I said on Twitter, ‘Chilli I can’t wait to see you’ what I meant by that was, ‘I can’t wait to see you to beat your f–king face into the concrete.’
There’s just something I want to say. I’m not gonna talk about Chilli sucking my father’s d–k or most of the d–ks in the industry in the ’90s…I won’t talk about that. The fact that she sucked most of the d–ks in the 90′s, I won’t talk about that. That has nothing to do with the fact that she is a lying person, I won’t even call her a wh*re anymore. She’s claimed that, we got it.
First I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. I apologize for the delay in responding to the movie, but I wanted to gather my thoughts. I have always been a private person and this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family. I have needed time to spend with my family and for personal reflection.
The movie contains many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me. Please know that I have never cheated or mislead anyone. I will defend my reputation, accomplishments, and character. My attorney is in the process of demanding a retraction of the false and defamatory statements and scenes about me from VH1.
My silence has empowered individuals looking for a payday at my expense. I have held my peace for 20 years and it’s time the truth comes out. I will be sharing my story in the appropriate venue at the appropriate time. With all my heart I thank you for your faithful support.
I am extremely proud of the success and massive accomplishments of TLC—the group I discovered, managed, and mentored. I helped push open doors for TLC and other women in this male dominated industry. My sacrifices ultimately opened the door for not only a new wave of female performers in this industry but also a new generation of female executives. That backdrop makes the movie extremely personally upsetting to me.
“You know what? I don’t know – To be honest with you – I’ve been so caught up in thanking God with the blessings; with the success of this film. All the other stuff or half of the stuff that I don’t see – I’ll hear about it like from you or so or someone’s going to say something to me….We just felt we put out our relationship with her because that’s who we had the relationships with, that’s who we had those experiences with was Pebbles; not her children.”
Chilli continued that she was once close with Ashley and only wished them the best, “We’ve always had love for them – I’ve known them since they were babies. They were little so they weren’t even able to comprehend what was going on between us and their mom because they were children. So I don’t know. I really don’t have anything to say about the kids or anything like that, besides the fact that I hope they’re doing well and understand them being upset because everybody loves their mom. You just love your mother. But at the same time, at the end of the day, this is what happened between TLC and her. We didn’t make up these things. We just did not. Why would we do that?
