TLC’s Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins Files for Bankruptcy


The ongoing recession is not only effecting regular people, but celebrities as well. We sadly have to report that TLC songbird Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins has filed for bankruptcy after finding herself owing $768, 643 to creditors, reports TMZ.


Most of her debt is from delinquent mortgage payments on her $1.2 million Atlanta mansion. According to court documents filed in October, it seems that the R&B singer is not blowing her money on materialistic things. She brings in $11,700 month in income and has expenses totaling $8,821.

T-Boz also claims that she is owed $250,000 in child support payments for her daughter Chase Rolison by her ex-husband, rapper Mack 10. Despite a successful career as a member of the ’90s R&B trio TLC that includes several No. 1 hit singles, the 41-year-old singer claims she only earns $1,200 a month in royalties.

Outside of her financial hardship, T-Boz recently appeared on CNN to discussed her medical scare when doctors told her that she had a non-cancerous brain tumor. Surgeons were able to successfully remove the cancer but she now suffers from vertigo. “I’ve been through a lot with sickle-cell, but my recovery from the brain tumor was the hardest thing,” she said. “Iā€™m proud of myself for seeing this through and to be here for my daughter. You have to make a commitment to yourself and that was important to me.”

We wish T-Boz all the best and hope she can recover from this financially. That $250,000 child-support check could come in handy right now.
