With a career spanning over 25 years, Mariah Carey has enjoyed success in the 90’s, 00’s, and the current 10’s.

During the later timeframe, it’s industry icon L.A Reid who shepherded the songbird to new heights – most notably with 2005’s ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ and follow-up ‘E=MC2.’ Both of which spurned a number of hits for the diva.

LA Reid: “TLC Have Not Been Dropped”

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…
