TLC performs live at the BBT Center in Sunrise

Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of the pop group TLC filed a lawsuit against a Gwinnett County firm after the firm failed to deliver a Cadillac Escalade EXT as promised.

Thomas filed a $27,500 lawsuit against Atlanta Highline Consulting LLC, a car and truck brokerage firm owned by Joshua William Waddell on Sept. 18.

Court documents obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows Thomas wired Waddell $10,000 on Oct. 10, 2014 and $17,500 on Oct. 23, 2014 for a total of $27,500. But the vehicle was never delivered.

On April 2, 2015 Thomas demanded a full refund of the funds she paid Waddell, but she never received the money or the Escalade EXT which retails for over $82,000 fully loaded.

From AJC.com:

Efforts were being made to reach Thomas, Atlanta Highline Consulting, identified online as an automobile and truck brokerage firm, and Waddell for comment.

The Escalade EXT deal followed a similar one in August 2014 in which Thomas said she purchased another Escalade EXT for $25,375 from Atlanta Highline Consulting LLC and Waddell. She said there were no problems with that deal and the vehicle was delivered.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    They must want to have a BBHMM moment like Clive and nem lol know how they get down about their money. And rightly so..

  • Imperfectly_perfect

    10 million? But T-boz is broke? I thought they both were broke?

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    I was wondering, because if she has that kind of money why were they asking their fans to Go Fund Me their next CD? Their fans must be stupid.

  • Blaisefiyah

    Chilli is starting to look like a man with long hair.

  • Imperfectly_perfect

    Exactly! And she paid half the money in 2014...it took her an entire year to come up with the other half?

  • Mel

    Tboz been rocking the same hairstyle since I was in jr high I'm twenty something now wore diff weaves went bald now natural and her hair still ain't change ..oh and them folks need to pay

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    (tap screen)I dropped dead,but my Spirit came back to give you this!please and thank you!*drop dead again*:')))))))

  • EatTheCakeAnnaMae

    T-Boz has sickle cell, and she had a brain tumor, so her medical bills bankrupted her. A close friend of mine has sickle cell, and she STAYS in the hospital. Thank God for medicaid...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chilli been a hustler

  • Junkanoo

    Nothing against TLC but who styles them?!?!?!?!? Do they dress themselves or pay someone to design these atrocious outfits. .... sorry but these outfits are crimes against humanity. .....

  • Roc

    The funds were paid in 2014. She filed the suit in 2015.

  • Vicky

    I cannot committ to laughing at this as I am already being summoned to hell and need all possible avenues out.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Stuck in the 90s...

  • Jusstlookn2

    Brilliance. DEAD

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Lol yes! Your music is from the 90s but that doesn't mean your clothes have to be. They stay wearing astronaut suits.

  • Teachmeeatme

    Whatever happen to going to a dealership... ijs

  • smartchickfl

    ?@ these comments. Which is why I enjoy lurking on the sidelines. Always a good read darling. ??

  • brooklyn23

    After awhile spending money here and there it adds up and isnt regarded as chump change. 10mili is a lot for maybe you and me but really its not that much. I can blow that in a month. Thats her 27k and if she isnt gonna get what she paid for, she needs to be refunded.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    That's what I want to know too

  • stav

    Someone please tell Tboz to get a real hairstylist , that kitchen stylist is No Bueno.

  • AmericanMade

    She got staying power with that hair style. Lol

  • stav

    Alright now! LMBO

  • Lolalao

    Love it!! Lmao

  • Zizzle

    It's still September.

  • stav

    Chilli! Get a hair cut, some color, ....something!, You bore me to death!

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Why would you wire someone that kind of money? Never do business that way.

  • Fendi

    Maybe my reading comprehension is off, but how is she only paying $27,500 for a car that retails over $80k, yet she is worth $10 million (per someone up top) but looks like $1.37 at all times?!. That's that new math. I tapped out at statistics, so IDK. I assume she leased the truck and paid the lease off up front. (Who does that?)

  • Fendi

    "$27k is chump change to her," yet, as you said, it took her a week shy of one year to pay the $27k. Perhaps the people closed their 2014 books out and were not expecting a delayed payment a year later of the remainder of a deposit. Deposits don't hold orders forever. She is lucky if they gave her 60-90 days to pay the remaining balance, more or less a year.

  • Kinggg

    I wish y'all would understand net worth doesn't mean how much money a person has. Assets = Liabilities + Equity. She can be WORTH 10 mill at the moment and have 8 mill in debt lol, we don't know what's really going on in these celebs pockets.

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    dis here some fraganackle bullsheitt if I ever heard some ? this gal was gettin a scheme deal from this so called company THEN 2nd time around got schemed ? chili willy u ain't silly u saw a fish n bit it but now u gon get exposed cause u shouldn't have did it???

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    that gal know better ? but that money talked louder

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    & she wonders why she's single ?

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    Wooooooo Lawd that back scene is ATROTOUS? somebody help Tboz head ?

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    ???

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Ive said this so many times but folks dont get it *sighs*

  • Kinggg

    I see it on Twitter all the time .. People love comparing these celebs and they pocket I'm like do y'all even know how to budget your own accounts ???? Worrying about how much these folks have smh

  • Tammie Reed

    Celebrities "broke" is NOT regular folks kinda "broke". I don't know why folks don't understand that by now smh! And when they file for bankruptcy that is to protect their assets. Ok Im done lol.

  • 1/8

    This group is completely lost without Left Eye. If she were still alive, she'd push them to update their look and sound. Apparently, Lisa was the creative force behind TLC.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Tammie, I keep telling folks that. When sm1 says a multi-millionaire's broke, they mean rich people broke. And TLC filed CH11. Sure, bk is a bk, but they didn't file personal bankruptcies, like 7 or 13.

    It sounds like Chilli buys vehicles at a great price and then re-sells them for profit. She bought her son an Escalade for his18th bday, but he didn't keep it long. He upgrade to a range rover months later.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Y'all believe Chilli with that single bs if y'all want. She bustin it open for somebody. I think it's Brad James, but that's none of my business.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Schit, they're going to ride this until the wheels come off. I'm thinking they still pull down a couple hundred grand a year??? That's great living for the south.

  • Hater

    OMG (and you ain't lied!)!
    I'm dead... LOL!

  • Renee Bee

    There's more layers to this story. Something is fishy.

  • PRiNCESSgIgI

    you're RIGHT?

  • Petty_boots

    Phuckin dead at your last sentence.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That was a typo. It took her 2 weeks to pay $27,500.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That was a typo. It took her 2 weeks to pay the money. The typo is fixed.

  • Tammie Reed

    a bit more, wink lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She's paying a steep discount for a 80K vehicle.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It makes me wonder why she got the courts involved when she know damn well that truck is stolen and the VIN numbers filed off.

  • Glenda Nichole

    Not a good look Chili?

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    APB:WHERE IS MICHELLE PEELE aka MP!!!!

  • ATL White Guy

    in other words, maybe she was trying to get a hook up

  • Divame

    She should've just leased one damn

  • Molly

    Goodness, I hope this is not a recent pic. Hard 2 believe they r cosigning these atrocious outfits. Both R beautiful women that need a serious makeover. ?

  • Aaron Lo

    I just hollered

  • Fendi

    I see you working on the weekend! Enjoy your weekend. Get a two-step in for me. ??

  • Fendi

    People open a Go Fund Me account to raise proceeds so they can buy ingredients to make potato salad. One man did so and ended up receiving over $100,000 in donations. Meanwhile, a cancer patient needs money for treatment and their account has nothing in it. But folks will fund a THOT's excursions to go to All-Star Weekend, complete with plane fare, hotel accommodations, car rentals, fine dining and Malaysian weave. They should throw in an extra $20 to get the chick a new set of 'days of the week' drawers. Nothing worse than a ho wearing her Wednesday panties on a Saturday. ?

  • MS.BEE

    IS ANYONE LOOKING AT THE DATES? SHE ACTUALLY PAID THE WHOLE 27K WITHIN 13 DAYS.

  • 1/8

    You have a valid point. If she can afford to wire 27k, she's got money coming from somewhere, but there's more to art than money.

    Artistically, TLC flatlined the day Lisa died. Part of the trio's appeal was their ability to push the envelope visually, lyrically, and musically. Now, they are stuck in a rut... trying to capitalize on a bygone era. TLC has become a pathetic caricature of itself.

  • JustB

    She shoulda known the deal was shady...who can get a truck like that for less than half the retail price...her goodies ain't worth it nomore

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    sad but true. lisa was the soul. the creative

  • Li

    She isn't aging well is she?

  • Li

    Like 50c.

  • Teachmeeatme

    Yes she is.. even if it's not fully loaded and it's just the basic used one.. which means there is more truth to the story

  • Teachmeeatme

    Indeed

  • Teachmeeatme

    Worth doesn't mean you have that in the bank.... but still, it's off like you say.

  • Fendi

    I am aware of what 'worth' means. I've never known a multimillionaire who didn't have < $30,000 at their disposal, but maybe you have. I don't comment based on hypothetical situations, but actual experience. And SR already replied to me and stated it was a typo that she corrected, so... Like you and I stated, it was indeed "off."

  • Teachmeeatme

    http://youtu.be/-FjE4_aIF2k. Nobody was coming for you Hun ?

  • Fendi

    Ok, sweetie.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I must admit that TLC as they knew it was over that day. Lisa was that link they needed to make it all work. Clearly, it all fell apart when she passed away. No other producer or A&R could help create whatever it was Left-Eye brought to the table. And to think they initially passed on her after her first audition.

    I've never gone to a TLC show. I want sexy grown up TLC on stage, not this whimsical stuff they're rocking from 1992. Put a show together, get some stylists. I bet Chilli feels naked and ugly without that long hair. So that's probably why she never cut it ever. Her hair is her power.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    A LIABILITY ISN'T AN ASSET...ASSETS CREDIT AN ACCOUNT; LIABILITIES DEBIT FROM THEM. ACCOUNTING 101

  • Cricket404

    Shame, some of those brokerage dealers work out of industrial parks. I was going to buy a Land Rover a couple of years ago for my daughter but they couldn't guarantee the condition of the car and they want you to pay for it before they purchase it from a rigged auction.

  • TookieShoonk

    I'm with you on that one Vicky!!

  • Kinggg

    did I say a liability is an asset ? I clearly stated what the accounting equation was ASSETS = LIABILITIES BECAUSE LIABILITES ARE AN OBLIGATION OF WHAT YOU OWE AND ASSETS ARE SIMPLIFIED AS ANYTHING THAT HAS VALUE. Assets do not credit an account assets have value cash.. Equipment, supplies, etc.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    LOL WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER...LIABILITIES AND ASSETS STILL AREN'T THE SAME. YOU'VE SAID IT TWICE NOW.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Maybe they grossed 10 mil but that's not what they brought home. T boz just had her Honda minivan repo'd last year so I really doubt they're millionaires. I guess you're new to the gossip world.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    He got that number out the air. They are both broke. Smh

  • ?E?E?M?A

    She doesn't have 10 mil. He probably went on networth.com and came up with #.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yea that sounds right. She paid for a 3 or 4 year lease upfront. I was about to be like what dealership is giving away cars at 75% off??!!

  • Kinggg

    I clearly just said that once again, idk what community college you graduated from a simple google search would show you want the accounting equation is.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    LOL I HAVE HALF MY MBA...THAT'S WHY I'M TRYING TO SAVE YOU FROM YOURSELF. BUT CARRY ON...BLASÉ BLASÉ.

  • Kinggg

    & so do I BA in business administration from baruch College, getting my MBA from NYU. You have a good weekend :)

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    BASED ON YOUR LOGIC A CAR THAT'S PAID FOR AND ONE THAT HAS A NOTE ARE EQUAL...THEY'RE NOT AND THAT'S ALL I'M TRYING TO POINT OUT. ENJOY YOUR SUNDAY!

  • Kinggg

    I thought I was going crazy until I re read what i wrote lmfao I pressed the wrong sign I ment that assets - liabilities + equity. My apologies.

  • imright

    how she get a escalade for 25k??

  • Meme81

    Even if she's worth 100 million, I feel her on suing. If someone doesn't put fries in my Wendy's bag, I'm driving back.

  • cheechee1x1

    lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cheechee1x1

    astronaut suits! LOL

  • Starsky Willows

    Bad pic... :(

  • 88

    Rick James Bish!!!!

  • 88

    She still dumb after all of these years.

  • 88

    F a lease she could have bought a new Dodge Durango fully loaded for that price.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    EACH ONE TEACH ONE...

  • Sincerity7

    Maybe Pebbles can give her back that Rav4 in the meantime

  • Crazy tee

    Dallas does a lot of chillis hustling....remember that son she has by him. I hope she is spending that money wisely because either age 18 or after 4 years of college legally the funds can stop...she better make sure he goes to college....don't think she has ever had issues with Dallas in regards to child support ...

  • sunni_daze

    27K for an 82K car, that should have been the red flag. Don't by cars via craigs list. They'll get you every time.
