** If one were to play this trope straight, it seems that Chilli would obviously be the beauty (object of many male fans' affection), Left Eye would surprisingly be the brains (came up with the name, look and concept for each album) and T-Boz would be the brawn (in a metaphorical sense, combating sickle cell and having a tough laid back demeanor in general).

Lopes had already started work on both her second solo album and on songs for the fourth TLC album, 3D, when she tragically died in a car accident in La Ceiba, Honduras on April 25, 2002. She was the sole fatality of eight people in the vehicle. Lopes allegedly tried to swerve around a truck, but there was another vehicle heading towards them in the opposite direction. To avoid a head-on collision, Lopes swerved all the way off the road. The vehicle rolled several times after hitting two trees, throwing Lopes and three others out of the windows. She died from severe head injuries. The passenger in the front passenger seat was videotaping at the time, and so the entire accident was recorded on video. Controversy over leaked autopsy photos led to protests in the {{NASCAR}} world: in response to the leak, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. painted a stripe next to the left headlight decal on his #8 Budweiser Chevrolet Monte Carlo for the Pontiac Excitement 400 at Richmond International Raceway. Several other drivers reacted the same way. Similar controversy had erupted following Dale Earnhardt, Sr.'s death in the 2001 Daytona 500.

They declared debts totaling 3.5 million dollars, much of it because of Lopes's insurance payments arising from the arson incident and Watkins's medical bills, but the primary reason being that each member of the group was taking home less than $35,000 a year after paying managers, producers, expenses, and taxes. They sought to renegotiate their 1991 contract with LaFace, under which they only received seven percent of the revenues from their album sales, and to dissolve their association with Pebbitone. Both Pebbitone and LaFace countered that TLC simply wanted more money and were in no real financial danger, resulting in two years of legal debates before the cases were finally settled in late 1996, which is why there was never a 96 follow up album to ''[=CrazySexyCool=]''. TLC's contract was renegotiated, their production deal with Pebbitone and Perri Reid (who had separated from her husband by this time) was rescinded, and the group appeared on the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack with "This Is How It Works" and was set to re-enter the recording studio in 1997 after signing a new contract with LaFace.

Preliminary work on TLC's third album, Fan Mail, was delayed when friction arose between the group and their main producer Dallas Austin, who was by this time dating Thomas and helping to raise their young son Tron. Austin wanted $4.2 million and creative control to work on the project, resulting in a stand-off between the producer and the artists. TLC eventually began working with other producers for the ''[=FanMail=]'' album, until finally negotiating with Austin, who produced the bulk of ''[=FanMail=]'' and gave the album a futuristic, more pop-based feel. ''[=FanMail=]'' was another success for TLC, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album sales chart and selling over 6 million copies in the U.S. The album featured the number-one hit "No Scrubs", produced by Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs, and the single "Unpretty," an alternative rock-styled song about self-love written by Watkins and Dallas Austin (another version of it sampled Dennis Edwards' 1984 hit "Don't Look Any Further"), that also reached #1 on the Billboard chart. At the Lady of Soul Awards the group was honored with the Aretha Franklin Entertainer of the Year Award.
