T-Boz commented on Monica’s post, after the singer dressed up in a 1994 Left Eye photo.
North West and Monica paid tribute to TLC — on, in the latter’s case, one of them — for Halloween this year … and did it with two wildly different approaches.
The 9-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed off her dance moves while recreating the TLC hit song “No Scrubs” with two of her friends. While North channeled Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas with her long, curly hair and matching leather outfit, her friends’ wigs were perfect for T-Boz and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
In another TikTok posted on her joint account with her mother, North and her pals were also seen getting ready for the video shoot.
Chili herself took to her personal Instagram to gloat about her commitment to the iconic 1999 music video.
“#demtlcbabies succeeded!!!” she wrote, before also calling the playtime “toooo cuuute” in her Instagram story.
The official TLC account also praised the little trio, sharing the same TikTok in a series of Instagram stories. ” Yes ! Looking for amazing women! the caption read. The account also said that West and his friends “did it,” before calling them “too cute.”

Monica, meanwhile, chose to go a completely different route with her TLC-inspired costume this year.
The 42-year-old “Angel of Mine” singer recreated the 1994 snap of TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Atlanta at home after an argument. The singer ended up serving five years of probation for her crimes. Lopes died in 2002 after a fatal car accident while vacationing in Honduras.
To recreate the photo, Monica dressed in a similarly patterned floral dress and held up a sign that read “Fulton County Police Department. Atlanta, Georgia.” She also included the original for reference.
Former Left Eye bandmate T-Boz commented on Monica’s recreation.
“Haaaaaaaa🤣🤣🤣 You love it!!!! Funny story that I dressed her that day…. And my mom said why did you give her that ugly ass dress… And I said that this is what she chose 🤷🏽♀️,” she wrote. “But like WHY did I Hv this dress in the first place 🤦🏽♂️lol Miss My Sister 🤣🤣🤣 Funny… You did that 🥰🥰🥰”
Cardi B said Monica “bolstered” the look, Jermaine Dupri reacted with a “Wow!!!”, Ludacris added “😂😂🔥🔥”, while Fat Joe wrote, “My daughter🔥.”
Others, however, didn’t find it as funny.
“Someone down in a domestic violence situation is no costume😒,” one reviewer wrote. ‘I don’t respect it,’ said another, while someone else wrote, ‘How full bodied? How is this ATE? It’s so disrespectful and there are so many beautiful pics of Lisa she could have done and that’s what you chose smh.”
In her Instagram story, Monica pointed out that the women of TLC themselves were laughing at the incident at the time – sharing a Vibe cover in which Left Eye rocks a fire helmet under the caption “TLC Fires It Up – Burning Up the Graphics, Burning Down the House.”
Monica apparently responded to some of the backlash by posting a Vibe cover showing the three TLC women themselves poking fun at the situation.
