TLC's Ex-Manager Pebbles Files $40M Lawsuit Against Viacom over TLC Biopic


TMZ.com:
TLC's ex-manager is a conniving, dishonest businesswoman who hoodwinked 3 innocent girls -- that's how it looked in a TV movie about the group ... and the ex-manager is now gunning for justice.

Perri "Pebbles" Reid claims in a new lawsuit ... the TV flick, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" assassinated her character by portraying her as a liar and a cheat, when actually she invested her time and money as TLC's manager and created one of the best-selling female groups of all time.

Pebbles says the film falsely depicts her as pressuring Chilli to get an abortion ... pushing T-Boz to put the group ahead of her health ... and doling out a measly $25/wk for the girls.

Reid says the film -- which first aired a year ago and several times since -- destroyed her reputation, and she's suing for $40 million.

Mariah Carey Struggles With Voice During Concert In Japan



TMZ.com:
Mariah Carey struggled to get through the first night of her tour Saturday night in Japan ... with her voice giving out -- and the video is PAINFUL to watch.

Carey kicked off her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour last night in Tokyo ... and based on the video -- as well as multiple others online -- it's clear she couldn't hit the high notes she's famous for.

During some portions of the concert, it seemed like Mariah forgot the lyrics ... however it's possible her microphone gave out -- since the stand broke during her performance of "We Belong Together."

Heartbreaker.
