Faith Evans is upset after being duped by Lifetime to star in a new documentary about her life and times with rapper Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
Faith claims Lifetime misrepresented the storyline of her episode in the new series “Hopelessly in Love,” by initially portraying the story as a positive piece.
In reality, the documentary rehashes her controversial relationship with B.I.G., which is not how the show was pitched to her.
The trailer for the episode describes the relationship between Faith Evans and B.I.G. as “the most controversial in the history of hip-hop.” The description is as follows:
“This is about the intense and tragic marriage between Faith Evans and the Notorious B.I.G. But at its core, it’s a story about infidelity –the roots of it and the consequences of it –for the couple and the culture at large. Twenty years after the iconic rapper’s murder, 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”.
It depicts Faith Evans as ready to deal with the pain and revisit the relationship’s intimate moments from engagement to B.I.G. to the affairs and rivalry that led to the deaths of both Biggie and Tupac.
According to Faith Evans, the doc moved from being a love story to cheating and Lil Kim, things that are all in the past.
“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.,” Faith told The New York Post.
The episode has also pissed Voletta Wallace, B.I.G’s mother, who was blindsided by Lifetime’s decision to flip the script.
The documentary airs on January 10th.
