LA Reid Lands at Sony


Rumors that LA Reid's career had been swirling the drain at Island Def Jam and as a whole have been circulating for years. Well that's all over now, because LA Reid has been tapped by Sony Music as the new chairman of Epic Records...

According to The Hollywood Reporter the newly restructured Epic Label Group will combine the rosters of Jive and Epic and reunite LA with Usher and Pink, two artists he discovered and helped develop.

L.A. begins his new position in early July. No word on how this will effect his current gig as a judge on the singing competition show, The X Factor.

why is Perri Pebbles Reid still carrying the Reid Last name. She's no longer married to him. Is it because she needs it for recognition status?

This heffa is a Thief and a Hoe. She stole from TLC and hoe her way around hollywood. Now she wants to be a good religious role model but for who? Her son??? Bitch needs to give back some of that money she stole from TLC then she will get my respect.

Pebbles was married to George Smith. George Smith mentored,implemented and orchestrated her success before and during her first album. George Smith secured Pebbles'recording contract with MCA through his political contacts. He masterminded Pebbles' career and used his business acumen to bring the singles "Girlfrind" and "Mercedes Boy" to top ten songs on the Billboard Charts. George Smith was instrumental in developing the careers of Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Antonio "L.A." Reid. George Smith was responsible for spearheading Bobby Brown's solo career with the "Don't Be Cruel" album which sold over twelve million copies. Bobby Brown also lived with George Smith for a while at Mr. Smith's estate in Danville, CA

HI EVERYONE. I GUESS ASHLEY REID THINK THAT THER MOM, PERRI PEBBLES REID IS A SAINT. SHE DID ALOT OF DIRT IN HER PAST AS EVERYONE DOES. IF SHE IS HONESTLY GETTING HER LIFE TOGETHER THAT IS GREAT. BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT SHE IS AND BELIEVE HER TO BE A FAKE. SHE SUPPOSED TO BE CALLED OUT BY GOD. SHE ONLY IS PREACHING BECAUSE SHE NEEDS MONEY AND GOT CAUGHT FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE TO OTHERS. SHE CLAIMED THAT GOD SPOKE TO HER AND TOLD HER TO START A CHURCH SHE LIED. GOD SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO HER AND TOLD HER TO NOT LAY WITH ANOTHER WOMANS HUSBAND. HE SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO HER AND TOLD HER NOT TO MARRY OTIS NIXON. AT THE WEDDING THEY DID NOT HAVE NAY ALCOHOL THER TO BE SO RELIGIOUS BUT, WHAT GOOD IS THAT IF YOU ARE SMOKING CRACK AND RUNNING DOWN THE STREET BUTNACKED. GOD SHOULD HAVE NOT JOINED THEM TOGETHER. SHE WAS USING COKE WITH WHIT. THERE IS NO WAYT AHT SHE IS HER BEST FRIEND AND NOT DO WHAT SHE DOES. AS A MATTER OF FACT I REMEMBER WHEN WHIT WAS TALKING WITH DIANE SAWYER AND SHE SAID THAT SHE AND HER GIRLS WOULD GET TOGETHER AND PARTY. WHITNEY DIVORCING BOBBY IS NOT HALF HER DRUG PROBLEM. SHE HAS BEEN PARTYING WITH PEBBLES AND CHERELLE.

Perri Pebbles Reid slept around a lot and broke up married relationships. What Perri Pebbles Reid or Sister Perri did with George Smith was horrific. Perri/Pebbles played George for his money and broke up his marriage knowing that his wife Darlene had terminal cancer. She married George and slept with LA Reid in George's bedroom while George took his daughter Jennifer to school. Perri Pebbles Reid was a crook, whore and all about herself. Why is she selling "Girlfriend I am Saved" on her Christian website. Why does she have a website and Myspace showing all of her MCA pictures. How come she never mentions she was married to George Smith who bankrolled her career?

Come to Oakland, CA if you want to know who Perri Pebbles Reid really is. Pebbles stays in Atlanta because she is dishonet and hiding from the truth. How can you be saved when you are still telling lies about your past? I feel sorry for Ashley and her brother Aaron. I pray one day that Perri Pebbles Reid will tell the real truth...then, I will know she is truly saved! Praise the Lord...the truth will set you free.

Perri Pebbles Reid is the biggest phoney. She sells Tshirts and hats that say "Girlfriend I am Saved" and has all of these pictures of herself when she was performing as Pebbles. She is a fake and found another way of making money. Real ministers do not have pictures of themselves when they were sex symbols on their websites. Sister Perri Pebbles Reid appears to be in love with herself. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is only skin deep...Ugliness and deceit is to the bone

I feel sorry for TLC. Perri Pebbles Reid really took advantage of those young girls and stole their money and took their publishing. Perri Pebbles Reid is a hard-core crook. As far as her relationship with George L. Smith, they both should be ashamed of themselves plotting on his poor wife Darlene and waiting for her to die so Pebbles could finally move in. How sad that George Smith moved Perri Pebbles Reid into his household the week that his dying wife went into the hospital before her death. Darlene had accused George of cheating with Perri Pebbles Reid and he told the poor dying woman that it was all in her mind. Everyone in Oakland knows the tragic truth about George Smith and Perri Pebbles Reid. May God forgive them both for all of the people they hurt and for poor Darlene who had terminal cancer and was humiliated by their public and digusting sex affair. Pebbles is a bum and so is George

I do not know how people are following behind her and thinking that they will get saved by attending her ministry. First of all there is no such thing as a woman minister. God has never authorized a woman to head a church. When you read the Bible it tells us that Christ is the head of the Church and the Church is his bride. You are right she is a scam and should be ashamed of herself. But she is making alot of dirty money and is loving it. Her daughter Ashley have a problem with her brain, she do not want to see her mother for what she really is. I remember reading where she wrote that LA Reid was a much her father as anyones else. But he is not the one that planted her seed. George Smith did that and she ran off with her with LA Reid. Pebbles was on the PTL show talking about her life in the music industry and talked about TLC she called Chilli a sex kiten. But she was a sex kitten herself so she can not talk about no one. She is lying to others telling them that God spoke to her and told her to start a ministry. If God had been speaking to her he would have told her to not marry Otis Nixon. There is no way that she is save and marry into the world. And besides what Church did she get saved in and under who? A sinner cannot save themselves.

Perri Pebbles Reid, the use to be singer is one mixed up woman. Rumors say she use to trick in Oakland before her singing career and use to be engaged to a big time dope dealer now serving time in San Quentin. Her first husband before Antonio (LA) Reid was George Smith, a millionaire from Oakland, California, who she was having an affair with and when his wife died of cancer, the night of the funeral, she moved into George's mansion in Danville and started wearing the dead woman's clothes and jewelry. Her millionaire husband, George, financed her career and got her signed to MCA with Jheryl Busby, who was President of MCA and also a friend of George Smith. George was also politically connected and smart. He handled all of Perri's business and through his business skills and management he made her a superstar with his business acumen. But she dumped him for Antonio (L.A.) Reid who she was fucking the whole time she was married to George.

Rumor is Pebbles was fucking Antonio (L.A.) Reid in George Smith's house in the bedroom next to theirs when he took his daughter to school. Then she was fooling around on Antonio (LA) Reid with one of the Wayans brothers but LA wasn’t too faithful either. LA Reid dumped Perri Pebbles Reid and filed for divorce, then she married cracked out ugly Otis Nixon, who was running down the street naked after a bad batch of crack. Now, Pebbles or fake “Sista Perri”, whateva u want to call her is running religious scams as a advisor and minister, rippin folks off left and right with no end in sight. She even had Whitney fooled until Whit stopped takin crack.

Oh! It was worse than that. Pebbles and George Smith met in 1985 and immediately started a scandalous affair with each other while George was still married to his wife Darlene who was terminally ill with cancer. Pebbles and George had a very high-profiled affair which publicly humiliated his family. George Smith was paying all of Pebbles’ bills and staying at the apartment he set up for her.

George Smith’s secretary told his wife about the affair with Pebbles and he still continued to sleep with her. George would leave his office early and stay at Pebbles apartment until wee hours in the morning. It appeared that he felt nothing for his ailing wife. Pebbles moved in with George the night his wife died. Pebbles and George were married the next month which devastated his young daughter. George gave Pebbles the $150,000 ring, furs, money and all of the dead wife’s valuables including her brand new Bentley. George Smith put Pebbles on his payroll at Smith Engineering & Contract Services and she never put in a day’s work or even showed up at the office. He totally neglected his young daughter. George Smith was twenty two years older than Pebbles and a dog! Pebbles met L.A. Reid and had an affair with him while still married to George. She eventually left George Smith for Antonio L.A. Reid

You people got this woman's sex life down to a tee. Did any of you have a one on one conversation with her, because I've never heard of celebrities sitting down with rabid hater fans (or any fan), pouring out intimate details about themselves.

Thanks for the scoop everyone. Wow. It's amazing how Pebbles condemned Chilli, who was in love with Dallas Austin, but yet absolves herself of all her "crimes." Stealing money from the hard work of young black women is despicable. Sleeping around with married men is sinful. Saying you've been called by God under these circumstances is quite self serving.
