Rumors swirled Friday that nineties girl group TLC has been dropped from Epic Record Label, but LA Reid, who is the CEO of the label, has confirmed that's not true. 

He tweeted Friday, "Sorry folks, TLC [has] not been dropped by Epic Records and yes we, Chilli and T-Boz are friends for life."

Speculation that the group was taken off the label started after the TLC News Page tweeted, "TLC has been dropped from Epic Records." It went even further when the group was not on Epic's website under the artist's page at the time (however, they are on there now).

While TLC members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins initially stayed silent about the rumored drop, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas set the record straight with a fan who tweeted their condolences. 

The fan wrote, "Chilli you and T-Boz are in my thoughts at this time. So sorry to hear you got dropped from Epic Records."

Chilli responded, "Until we release an official statement don't assume the "talk" is real." While the tweet has since been deleted, both Chilli and T-Boz retweeted Reid's message that confirmed they were still on the label.

The reason for the alleged drop was Reid's ex-wife Perri "Pebbles" Reid, who also used to manage TLC. In the group's Vh1 biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, Pebbles was portrayed as one who stole millions from the group and had them sign a shady contract. Since then, she has threatened to sue Vh1 and demanded a retraction. 

In the meantime, The No Scrubs singers prepares for their American Music Awards performance Sunday, marking their first performance at an awards show since the 2000 Grammys.
