I knew she would surface after the TLC biopic aired. Crystal Jones, an original member of TLC, is speaking out against her portrayal in VH1′s new biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Crystal appeared on the Ryan Cameron Morning Show and had this to say about the biopic:
“I was very disappointed. They portrayed me was very inaccurate and it brought up a lot of wounds that I put to rest a long time ago and relive it again just didn’t sit well with me.”
Reports say that Jones is planning to come out with a tell-all book about her short time in the group and the book is entitled TLC My Story: The Awakening Of A Shattered Dream.
Here’s more tidbits from Crystal’s interview:
On The Inaccuracies Of The Film:
“The movie was very inaccurate, and it brought up a lot of worms I kind of put to rest a long time ago. One, we never auditioned for L.A. [Reid]. We auditioned for Pebbles at Seriously Sound Studio, and the song we used was a song that was produced by Jermaine Dupri called “I Got It Going On…”
Why She Really Didn’t Get To Stay In The Group:
“As far as what happened, and I’m sure what everybody wants to know is that, it was based on the contract…We’re going through the paperwork, and it’s lengthy. So I turned to Pebbles and I said, ‘Can I take it home and let my mom take a look at it? Because I really don’t understand what I’m reading.’ And she said, ‘No absolutely not, so I didn’t sign it.’”
