Tlc's T-Boz Files For Divorce

TLC star TIONNE 'T-BOZ' WATKINS ROLISON has filed for divorce from her rapper husband MACK 10 - accusing him of committing adultery and threatening to kill her.

The NO SCRUBS singer has also arranged for a temporary restraining order against the rapper, barring him from coming within 100 yards of her.

T-Boz filed the divorce papers and requested the restraining order on 8 June (04). She is seeking full custody of their three-year-old daughter, CHASE ANELA.

Mack 10, real name DEDRICK D-MON ROLISON, denied the allegations in court documents filed on Friday (11JUN04). In them, he said his wife has made the claims "for the sole purpose of attempting to gain an advantage in these proceedings" and to prevent him from seeing their daughter.

The couple married in August 2000 and are now separated. T-Boz said in an affidavit that Mack 10 threatened to kill her several times, most recently on 8 June.

The first threat allegedly occurred in October 2002. The 34-year-old singer said she was leaving Mack 10's home with Chase when the rapper grabbed their daughter from the car and told T-Boz she couldn't leave.

She stated in the affidavit, "My husband informed me that he would smash my teeth down my throat. I asked my husband to give my daughter back to me and I reached for her, and my husband pushed me to the ground twice. At that point, my husband grabbed me around my neck and choked me."

She said police officers had to help her and her daughter leave the home.

The violence continued, she said, when she told him in March 2003 that their marriage wasn't working. At that point, the affidavit states, Mack 10 threatened to have her "erased".

The 32-year-old rapper has been ordered to appear in court on 22 June (04).
