The crazy sexy cool songstress, who has managed to overcome severe health issues, spoke about her brain tumor on CNN last month (click HERE if you missed that), but while her health has improved, her financial status has not.
It’s being reported that Watkins has unfortunately fallen on hard times and recently filed for bankruptcy protection from her creditors!
According to TMZ:
T-Boz ain’t too proud to beg — just like TLC sang back in the 90s — because she’s filed for bankruptcy.
According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 — mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.
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.
Calls to her attorney were not returned.
So Mack 10 owes over $250G’s in child support? Good luck with that.
It’s sad to see so many of our musical icons facing such severe financial hardships. If you recall, Toni Braxton was in the same financial boat a few years back, but after 2 seasons of that Braxtons Family Values reality show, she seems to be recovering.
But I digress.
T-Boz waiting on a Mack 10 child support check to save the day is kinda like RHOA’s Sheree Whitfield building “Chateau Sheree”. I just don’t see it happening.
