It seems that TLC’s biopic is causing more controversy than praise.
The family of the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes aren’t too thrilled about not knowing the status of the movie’s production. “The only way I found out was because a friend of mine was cast as an extra and flew down there and I happened to go up there with her,” said Lisa’s sister, Reigndrop to 4UMF News.
The shooting is taking place in Atlanta, the same city where the family currently resides. And although the family agreed to the film, Reigndrop expressed that she and her mother were “pissed off and hurt more than anything.”
The family also has their doubts about Lil’ Mama playing the full-of-life rapper. “I didn’t know her to be an actor, and I didn’t know how well she would do portraying Lisa, so I didn’t know how to feel.” However, after seeing the Harlem rapper on set Reigndrop’s skepticism dissipated. “I was actually surprised. I told her she was doing a good job. So hopefully all the scenes are like that.”
The movie is set to be released in November.
