T-Boz, a singer in the R&B girl group TLC, recently had her Chapter 13 bankruptcy case dismissed by a judge in Atlanta. The singer previously filed for bankruptcy last February, but this case was also thrown out. Also, T-Boz and the rest of TLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1995 when they were beginning to gain fame.
The Chapter 13 bankruptcy case was dismissed because the judge felt that creditors provided sufficient evidence that T-Boz had not been making an effort to follow through with the bankruptcy process. For example, creditors told the judge that the singer had not appeared at meetings to negotiate their debts, made any payments to resolve her debt, filed paperwork required in Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or attempted to recover $250,000 of child support she is owed.
T-Boz can refile for bankruptcy 180 days after the day that the judge threw out her latest Chapter 13 filing. In the meantime, creditors may attempt to seize any of the singer’s assets.
