Earlier this week, the net was sent into a frenzy amidst reports that iconic girl-group TLC had abruptly “severed ties” with recording home Epic Records.
Shocking on many a front, the claims stemmed from the fact the ‘Waterfalls’ singers had been removed from the roster section of the label’s website, and had themselves replaced the label’s logo from their official website. Whats more, with the timing of the drama caused by their hit VH1 movie, it appeared the personal had clashed with the professional – with musically fatal results.
However, in a surprise announcement, Epic’s head, LA Reid, has confirmed that ladies are still with the label. His words after the jump…
Taking to Twitter today, Reid (who signed the trio to their first deal and steered them to the top of the charts) wrote:

Interesting. Very interesting.
Factually, the group were indeed missing in action from the label’s site – which begs the question: is there more to the story or was it an administrative oversight? Who knows.
In any case, it appears that it’ll be business as usual for the group’s surviving members T-Boz and Chilli; the duo, who continue work on their first original album since 2002’s ‘3D’, take to the stage tomorrow night at the 2013 American Music Awards.
