In the mid 1980s, when they were just getting started a production team, a music executive referred them to a then up and coming singer, Pebbles, who was about to make her debut. When they met Pebbles, Babyface developed a crush on her (and it showed when they sang together that he was smitten with her) thought the song "Girlfriend" was more suited to her than Williams. Pebbles took them out to champagne dinners and showed them a luxury lifestyle they were not used to as struggling musicians. Pebbles put together, named, styled and placed TLC with producers, songwriters and video directors, which culminated into a big debut. Reid and Pebbles in the 1990s Another example of this is in one chapter he takes credit for TLC, when it was Pebbles' project from start to finish (but claims she took over TLC from him, which is a lie).
