As TLC revs up a comeback album due out June 30, the family of their late groupmate, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, is taking issue with comments made by Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins in a recent interview.

Speaking of Lopes’ “absence” on the independent album, which was funded through Kickstarter (among the contributors: Katy Perry), Watkins and Thomas blame Lopes’ family for “trying to hold her vocals hostage.”

But in an exclusive statement to Variety, the Lopes family defends its position, claiming that TLC and its management, longtime rep Billy Diggins, had repeatedly failed to honor past TLC agreements. “We could not, in good conscience, continue to act in Lisa’s interest in TLC, LLC by releasing the recordings as TLC and its managers had not acted in good faith. The management’s failure to honor the TLC agreement was at issue.” Read the full story here.
