Last year, there were rumors going around claiming Chilli of R&B group TLC was a home wrecker and dating CNN’s T.J. Holmes while he was still married. To set the record straight, Chilli responded to the rumors during an interview last year(2008) with ESSENCE.COM. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
CHILLI: No, let’s clear this up right now. T.J. Holmes was divorced and had been divorced. It wasn’t a situation where he was going through a divorce and still married. I would never date a man that is legally separated or tied to another woman. We dated, but it was brief. I’m a godly person and try to do all the things that God wants me to do. I have a conscience; I could never do that. Besides, I want to get married and present a healthy wonderful relationship for myself and my 11-year-old son.
After Chilli and TJ broke up, TJ was spotted out at the opening night of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra with a lady friend named Marliee. Peep the photo below. The photo is a bit grainy.
Here are some more photos below of TJ Holmes and a woman who appears to be Marliee. The woman to the left of TJ appears to resemble the photo of Marliee above.
Here is a video below of Tj Holmes talking his career with CNN.
