For those who may not have been alive during the height of MTVs Total Request Live or BET’s 106 & Park, before Naturi Naughton became best known for her role as Tasha St. Patrick on the Starz hit drama Power, and Adrienne Bailon as a co-host of The Real, both were members of R&B group 3LW. The group enjoyed moderate success, but are most known for their fallout.
According to an interview Naughton conducted with MTV in 2002, an argument erupted between the group’s manager Michelle Williams (who is also the mother of third 3LW member Kiely) and Naughton. Williams allegedly didn’t want her in the group and convinced Bailon and Kiely they’d be better off. Words were said and someone in a fit of rage threw a plate of food on Naughton. Fast-forward 15 years and Naughton is expecting her first child, Bailon is now married and the two seem to be enjoying their respective successful careers.
On Thursday’s show (May 25), Naughton appeared on The Real where Bailon issued an apology for all the mess that went down in the group, and graciously Naughton accepted.
