This month, Judge James R. Sacca of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Atlanta, Georgia dismissed TLC singer T-Boz’s third bankruptcy filing. The singer filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in October, listing more than $700,000 in debt.
Girl group TLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1995, and T-Boz filed for bankruptcy for a second time last February. Her second filing–a Chapter 13 filing–was also dismissed, leading her to refile in October.
The judge threw out T-Boz’s latest Chapter 13 bankruptcy because creditors reported that she had made no payments, had not showed up for meetings with creditors, and had not filed certain required paperwork. The singer can once again refile for bankruptcy 180 days after her case was dismissed.
Since T-Boz is no longer protected by bankruptcy, her creditors may attempt to claim some of her assets.
