Despite a wildly successful music career as a member of the trio known as TLC, T-Boz is not doing so well … financially.
According to TMZ, the R&B singer (real name: Tionne Watkins) filed for bankruptcy last month after finding herself owing more than $768,000 to creditors — mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.
However, court docs do not show excessive spending on her part. Docs shows that T-Boz takes in $11,700/month in income, and has monthly expenses totaling $8,821.
T-Boz also claimed she is owed plenty of cash in child support — totally $250,000.
According to Wikipedia, she has one daughter with rapper Mack 10, who she married in 2000 and divorced in 2004.
T-Boz’s group TLC enjoyed success throughout the 1990s and into the early-2000s. They had 10 top ten singles, four #1 singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards.
Despite the sales and accolades, she claims she only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties in court docs.
The singer’s camp have not commented.
