After a decade of success with fellow members Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, TLC disbanded when Lopes died in 2002.
Thomas has continued to perform and has appeared on several television series.
Thomas was selected and was given the stage name of "Chilli," making her the "C" in TLC.
Thomas's smooth vocals and sultry good looks were essential ingredients in TLC's record-breaking appeal.
Was excited about supporting the #PVIFF again this year and had no idea I'd be presented with this #Spotlight Award I'm #Honored Thank you to everyone involved.
Love you guys -B James @jasongphotography A photo posted by Brad James (@mrbradjames) on Sep 23, 2015 at am PDT Before making it official with James, Thomas was in a high profile relationship with R&B singer Usher, who was also seven years younger than her, Bossip reports.
The group was very successful during the 1990s and had also scored several hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, she joined the TLC at the age of twenty.
Last week, TLC member Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas posted an Instagram photo of herself alongside her alleged new younger boyfriend Brad James.
"Silly with abs," Thomas captioned the photo of herself and James flaunting their chiseled stomachs.
After she and Usher broke up, Thomas starred on a reality television dating show to find true love.
