Dallas Austin's Black Carpet Premiere.

Posted by SouthernGurl

Grammy award winning producer/songwriter Dallas Austin held his Dallas Austin Foundation's Black Carpet premiere recently in Atlanta, Georgia. Founded in 2003 by Austin, the Dallas Austin Foundation, Inc. (DAF) is a tax exempt organization whose focus is youth development through the art of music and film. The foundation recognize that young people who are exposed to music programs excel academically and are more likely to attend college. To date, the DAF has served over 9,000 students. “We’ve had successful careers — myself and numerous other musicians and producers out of Atlanta. This is the only way to give back and make sure kids have a head start on what we had a start on,” says the music maestro, filmmaker and TV show producer. “It’s a big deal to give back, and ... it teaches the kids that when you make it, you give back also."

That's a good look, Dallas.

Celebrities in attendance included Dallas' ex-girlfriend and TLC member Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas; Atlanta Falcon's fullback Ovie Mughelli; and producer Jazze Pha. I'm sorry but it can not be healthy and/or comfortable being for Jazze to be that big at that height. I got shortness of breath just looking at him! Also, Dallas' youngest son, Dominick (sp) accompanied him to the event. I couldn't find any pictures of Chilli and Dallas' son Tron or Tron's half-brother and Dallas' oldest son Cypress...so I'm assuming they didn't attend.

Anyhoo, it looks like a good time were had by all and judging from the pictures, you could not tell Chilli or Dallas (peep the pics of him getting his jam on after the jump) that they weren't getting down!

Chilli is absoultely beautiful. And it looks like she had so much fun. Good to see them two together again. They're obviously still on good terms after all these years. Good for them.

Am I the only person who wonders if she and Dallas ever considered getting back together again? They were together for a looooooooooooooooooong time before they broke up and she started dating Usher.

ok im confused werent chilli and austin dating for like ten years, and if they broke up in like 2000, who is his oldest son cyprus by? just curious, did he cheat on chilli/

^^Chilli and Dallas were off and on for 10 years before they broke up. My best guess is that during one of their break up phases he had a child with another woman. But I did hear he cheated on her multiple times which is probably the reason she got fed up with him and ended their engagement.
