"In any relationship, even when it came to my relationship with Usher, when it was time to make a move, I had to do that," she said.
Thomas' new love life comes on the heels of the Kickstarter campaign she and her fellow TLC band member Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins created to help fund their latest musical project.
Drew Sidora and Keke Palmer play the roles of T-Boz and Chilli, while Lil Mama plays the late Left Eye.
Former manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid is played by Rochelle Aytes and producer Dallas Austin is played by Evan Ross, while Mack 10, retired football player Andre Rison and Jodeci's Dalvin De Grate appear as ancillary roles.
Last week, TLC member Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas posted an Instagram photo of herself alongside her alleged new younger boyfriend Brad James.
"Silly with abs," Thomas captioned the photo of herself and James flaunting their chiseled stomachs.
