Singer and songwriter known best for her time as the manager of multi-platinum R&B group TLC. She also goes by the name Pebbles and rebranded herself as a gospel singer after a religious revelation in 1997.
She got her musical start in 1981 as a backup singer for Con Funk Shun. She released her first solo album in 1987.
Her contentious relationship with TLC (they'd previously blamed her for their bankruptcy) came to a head after the release of the movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, when she sued Viacom for $40 million for its depiction of her.
She collaborated with P. Diddy on the 1995 song "You."
