Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC fame has been in the spotlight for most of her life. The Grammy winner was a teen when she joined TLC, and as a result, her entire adult dating history has played out for the world to see. On Jan. 1, Chilli made headlines once again when she and Matthew Lawrence confirmed on Instagram that they are dating, but this is far from the first time she’s had a high-profile romance.
Chilli’s rep, Christal Jordan, confirmed the news of the TLC singer and “Boy Meets World” star‘s relationship in a statement to People on Jan. 3. She revealed the couple have been together since Thanksgiving, and she’s “never seen [Chilli] this in love” before.
For Chilli, the road to love has been a bumpy one. From Usher to Nick Cannon, the “No Scrubs” singer’s dating history is full of famous faces. But finding the right guy has been quite the journey. In fact, she even starred in a 2010 VH1 reality series called “What Chilli Wants,” which documented her quest to find the right man.
The series didn’t pair Chilli with her soulmate, but that didn’t keep her from looking for love. In a 2019 episode of “Girls Cruise,” the reality-TV star shared that she was content with her life, whether she found her forever person or not. “I’ve been in love, I’ve had heartbreak, and I just made a choice to not want to deal with that,” she said. “I love being a mom and working, and if one day I meet this most amazing man to be a part of my happiness, then that would be amazing. And if not, I’m still good.”
Four years later, Chilli found Lawrence – and another chance at love. Read on for a rundown of Chilli’s dating history before she fell for the ’90s heartthrob.
