Faith Evans Says She Was Misled By Lifetime Regarding Doc On Her Relationship With Notorious B.I. G.: I’m Upset I’m Attached To It!
Faith Evans is not only one of the most beloved voices of the ’90s and former Bad Boy Records first lady, she was once notorious for her tragic love story with rapper Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. Their love story is set to be chronicled in the Lifetime series, “Hopelessly In Love: Biggie and Faith Evans,” but Faith, reportedly, wants nothing to do with the doc. She tells Page Six:
“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.”
“I am beyond that and have no need to open old wounds, damage repaired relationships and, above all, soil the legacy of Christopher Wallace a?k?a the Notorious B.I.G…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.”
The trailer gives this synopsis for the stories covered in the doc about Faith’s relationship with Biggie:
“…the most controversial love story in hip-hop history, told by those who lived it. Faith Evans is ready to confront her pain and revisit the most intimate moments of their relationship – from their whirlwind engagement, to Biggie’s ongoing affairs with Lil’ Kim and Charli Baltimore, to the East Coast-West Coast rivalry that led to Tupac and Big’s deaths.”
However, Faith Evans says that she never signed up to air out dirty laundry regarding the other big hip-hop names attached to their story. She said:
“The Tupac stuff, the different women — how many times are people going to talk about that? It was supposed to be a love story, and it turns into cheating and [Lil’] Kim. We’ve come so far past that. [Lifetime’s] all about drama.”
Faith adds that Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, is also upset by Lifetime’s trickery:
“Ms. Wallace is pissed. 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 [doc] is taking steps backward.”
Representatives from Lifetime have yet to respond to Faith Evans’ comments.
