While TLC fans patiently wait for a solo release from Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas under Akon’s Kon Live Distribution, (Ray Lavender, Brick & Lace) another TLC member has her sights set on her first album and reveals some candid thoughts on the “weakest” TLC album.
In Touch magazine reports TLC’s Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas had a run-in with her ex-boyfriend Usher Raymond’s fiancé Tameka Foster. “Chilli is still friends with Usher’s mom, Jonetta, and recently stopped by her home to visit,” an insider revealed. While the singer was at the house, Tameka dropped in and wasn’t happy to see Chilli. The tipster dished, “She screamed at Chilli, ‘Doesn’t your boyfriend [CNN’s TJ Holmes] have a mom you can visit?'” Chilli told Foster to grow up and walked out of the home laughing.
Chilli of TLC spoke with XXL about her new romance with CNN anchor T.J. Holmes. “He’s so much different than all my past relationships,” the singer explained. I just held out, watied and met him. Everybody’s shocked. They’re so used to me dropping guys real fast.” Check out scans here.
