It appears that all is not well financially for TLC star Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. The singer has filed documents with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, claiming debts of nearly $800,000. This is not the first time T-Boz has had financial issues; your may remember that TLC filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy back in 1995, and T-Boz herself filed similar papers earlier this year, which were dismissed a month later.
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.
I guess on the bright side, it’s nice to see that she didn’t get into this situation spending ignorant amounts of cash, i.e. Real Housewives of New Jersey style. *Shrugs* And $250K in back child support, where the hell is Mack 10?!?
