Lifetime is set to release a new episode of their Hopelessly In Love series, which will focus on the relationship between Faith Evans and Biggie. Now, it appears those that were close to the late rapper are not feeling how it ultimately turned out. In a recent interview with PageSix, Faith Evans claimed that the Lifetime documentary didn’t turn out the way they pitched it to her.
“I feel upset that I’m attached to it. I was told that it would be a positive piece with a little more of my personal background. It wasn’t pitched to me as a story rehashing the sensationalized events that took place,” she said. “I am beyond that and have no need to open old wounds, damage repaired relationships and, above all, soil the legacy of Christopher Wallace.”
The trailer for the episode was released about two weeks ago, with the episode set to air on January 10th. Faith’s statements also said that Lifetime is getting messy for the series, especially regarding the stories about Tupac and Lil Kim, which she feels have been retold time and time again.
“Ms. Wallace is pissed,” Evans further stated. Everyone was blindsided. She has worked very hard for his legacy to be acknowledged in a more positive light. He’s nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This is taking steps backward.”
“It’s about my morals. I would never do business I’m not proud of at this point in my career. I’m not happy,” she then added.
