It appears as though TLC may have already been dropped from Epic Records — just four months after inking their new deal.
While it hasn’t officially been confirmed, a TLC fansite noted that the group’s name has been removed from Epic’s roster…and the Epic logo no longer appears on TLC’s own website.
The duo signed a new deal with Epic back in July have since released their greatest hits compilation, 20, and a new single, “Meant To Be.” Last month, TLC confirmed to MTV that they were working on a completely new studio album with L.A. Reid that’s was due for release in early 2014.
Let’s connect these dots: L.A. Reid is the ex-husband of Pebbles, who is currently in a bitter media (and possibly legal) feud with TLC after she was portrayed
as a greedy monster unfavorably in VH1’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
It’s all speculation at this point, but it does seem odd that the same man who signed Ciara after the weakest album release in her career would suddenly drop TLC just weeks after their story proved record-breaking success for VH1.
Update: Not so fast… Chilli posted a response to the rumors, saying:
