TLC's T-Boz and Chilli speak out against their wayward partner...

The disappearance of TLC star LISA ‘LEFT-EYE’ LOPES has led her bandmates to brand her “sick” and an “attention-getter”.

Speaking of the rapper’s disappearance on American radio station Hot 97.5, Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins said that she believed the disappearance was a hoax, and commented: “It’s no different than burning a house down and everything else she does (that) is negative. I guess she’s trying to keep her name out there. It’s sick. You claim to love your fans, but you have little kids crying, thinking you’re lost.”

Rozanda ‘Chilli’ Thomas continued: “This is what we’ve been going through forever.”

In 1994, Lopes was arrested for setting fire to the home of her boyfriend at the time, American footballer Andre Rison.

She has been ‘missing’ since August 31, when she missed a family gathering and a press conference for the MOBO awards, which she is due to present on October 4. However, Lopes was sighted by a camera crew last week, leaving a hotel with boyfriend Shaun Newman.
