CHILLI SPEAKS OUT ABOUT WHY HER AND USHER BROKE UP
The TLC Biopic was on fire. This is a true testimonial of sisterhood, friendship, and the crazy life of folks in music. I was glued to the screen in between twitter rants and memories of just how much we adored this female trio group. After a movie like this it's only right the women of TLC use this as great publicity tool. Everyone remembers their relationships, but most notably none of us will forget the relationship with Usher Raymond for Chilli after the ending of the group. Chilli finally started talking about the relationship's ending, and admits that Usher did not cheat on her like everyone thought. People are always talking. I was happy to hear her clear that up.
"We were together when he recorded that album. All of those songs on Confessions, that was about Jermaine Dupri‘s situation. Usher was just singing it. But people kind of bought into it, it was just the timing of our breakup when the album came out. So people assumed that album was about us, but it was not. And Usher and I weren’t oil and water. We broke up because I guess it was that time or whatever, he was that real love for me."
"In any relationship, even when it came to my relationship with Usher, when it was time to make a move, I had to do that. I don’t care how much my heart was hurting, sometimes you’re just supposed to be with people for a reason and it’s not always a lifetime. Even if you want it to be, it just doesn’t work out that way. But I’ll always love him, forever, because he was my first adult love, a real love. But we’re cool, we’re really cool. There’s no hard feelings, nothing like that. It’s all good."
And as for the real reason her ex-boyfriend and his wife, Tameka Raymond, divorced? Chilli says she absolutely has nothing to do with that.
"I didn’t have anything to do with it and I was very far away from it. I wasn’t a part of any of that kind of stuff. Our relationship was never like that. That’s his story."
