Teddy had children with two women Rose Croutch and Brenda Holloway. Rose is the mother Teddy, II (aka J.R.) and Brenda is the mother of his girls Tisha and LaDonna. All 3 of Teddy`s kids were born in 1974

I`m indeed saddened by teddy`s death. I loved the guy to bits. All the way from Malawi I still have almost every Cd of TP. Just last week before I learned about his death, I was chatting with a male friend (George) from Zim who resembles TP so match. As were chatting I pulled out a TP`s CD with his picture on and asked a friend who the guy in picture looked like and in unison every one shouted George looks like Teddy! Throughout the week I pull out all TP`s and have been listening to them. I will always love you Teddy.

Taaz only had one child that was raised by Taaz mother Eva Ritter. Teddy said he would take care of him ( The son ) but he never did. He ( Teddy ) only returned to the home one more time after her murder.

We have lost another legend. When I remember TP I can recall two memories that come to mind. I attended a Christening reception at his estate for Tamon. I can recall him meeting with all his guests how he expressed the importance of everyone feeling at home, but please no picture taking. He was a very private person and asked that everyone show respect. I can also remember going to my first concert to see TP with my best friend SR. We were young and had on our mothers fur stoles we couldnt been more than 16, but thought we were in love with TP. He made girls, ladies feel like queens. Love you TP.
