TLC's T-Boz Files for Bankruptcy -- Again
Tionne T-Boz Watkins Has Filed for Bankruptcy
Ah, sometimes fame and fortune don't quite work out. Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins of TLC filed for bankruptcy protection -- again -- last month.
Watkins had also filed for bankruptcy protection in February, but it was dismissed in March.
While T-Boz hasn't gone the route of overspending, she just doesn't have the income to support her sizable expenses, including over $700,000 for mortgage, car payments and medical bills.
You may recall that T-Boz has had some major medical issues over the years, including Sickle Cell Disease and the diagnosis of a brain tumor in 2006.
Watkins did appear on "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2009, helping to raise $20,000 for the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia.
T-Boz and members of TLC filed for bankruptcy protection in 1995, but they were still making a decent income. She only makes $1,200 in monthly TLC royalties, if you can believe that.
T-Boz is also owed $250,000 in child support from her ex-husband, Mack 10. Sounds like somebody's a deadbeat.
TMZ reports that T-Boz has $11,700/month in income and monthly expenses totaling $8,821.
So she's not Toni Braxton broke, but still ... Quick! Someone get T-Boz her own reality show.
