Chilli Turned Down Movie Roles For Son
TLC star ROZONDA 'CHILLI' THOMAS has revealed she gave up a huge movie role to concentrate on motherhood.
The R+B singer, a single mum, admits she has been forced to turn down a lucrative acting career because she can't leave her son Tron behind and head off on location.
She explains, "Tron is first. I put him before I put myself. I've never had a nanny... I don't do that because I want to do everything myself.
"It's a lot of things that I've turned down because I chose to put my baby first."
But she can't talk about the films she turned down, or who took the roles she was offered.
Chilli adds, "I signed contracts not to talk about that, but it was two things... They were shooting in another country and I had to be gone for such a long time.
"He (son) was in school and it was crazy. I was just like, 'I can't do that.'"
And did the films turn out to be big hits? The singer tells Sister2Sister magazine, "One of them did, yes."
