TLC have one hell of a story to tell. Now, for the first time, their story is being told in a new VH1 film Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC story.
The original line-up consisted of singer Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins, rapper Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes and singer Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas with the group's success peaking in the 1990s.
And last Tuesday night Tionne and Rozonda reunited on the red carpet with the actresses playing them for the premiere of the film. The all-female American group sold 65 million records worldwide and are the second best-selling female group of all time, just behind the Spice Girls.
Best known for hits such as Waterfalls and Creep the group endured spats with the law, each other and their record label.
And despite all the awards, multi-platinum albums and sell-out tours the group ended up bankrupt.
They worked with the likes of Missy Elliot, Lil' Kim and J Cole and Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes collaborated with former SpIce Girl Mel C on hit Never Be The Same Again, which went to number one in the UK.
Tragically Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes died in a car accident in Honduras with the remaining two members continuing chart success without her. Seven months later after Lisa's death T-Boz and Chilli released the group's fourth album 3D, which sold 2 million copies worldwide.
The two remaining members of TLC went on to work again with Missy Elliot, featuring on the track Can You Hear Me, which was on her 2002 album Under Construction.
Directed by Charles Stone III and written by Kate Lanier, the upcoming biographical film will air on VH1 this month.
