Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes Documentary To Reveal Singer's Last Days
Wednesday (April 25) will mark the five year anniversary passing of TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and in some revealing news by MTV, it seems as though fans will get the chance to see how she lived out her last days.
According to MTV, the hip-hop singer documented the last month of her life in video form, and that footage will be aired on in a VH1 documentary called "Last Days of Left Eye."
The documentary will, in addition to telling her story in Honduras where she passed, take fans through the beginning of her life, her career and into her tragic death.
Lopes was killed in a car accident on April 25, 2002, while in Honduras. She had reportedly visited the country for spiritual and physical healing for a 30-day pilgrimage with family and friends, but it was cut short just days before she was expected to return to the U.S.
MTV reports that "Last Days of Left Eye" will be told through the voice of Left Eye just like the documentary film, "Tupac: Resurrection." She will tell her story through interviews, unreleased home videos, photos and other famous footage captured of the slain star.
The Laurin Lazin directed film will also give viewers some insight into the childhood of Left Eye and how she became the wild woman she was, as well as reveal the chapter in her life with fiancé/ NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Rison, where she breaks down the domestic dispute between the couple, which later led her to burn down the football player's house.
VH1 held a screen of the film in Atlanta last week during the Atlanta Film Festival. Celebs, friends and family such as Monica, Ron DeVoe of New Edition, 112, Big Boi, Rico Wade, India.Arie and Cee-Lo were all in attendance, said MTV.
If the singer was alive today, she would be turning 36 this year. May she rest in peace.
"Last Days of Left Eye" is slated to debut on VH1 on May 19 at 9 p.m.
