R&B Queen Faith Evans is reportedly upset over the new Lifetime documentary “Biggie and Faith Evans,” about her life with her late rap legend husband, Notorious B.I.G.
The singer told Page Six she was pretty much bamboozled into participating in the project.
“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,” Faith said.
She continued, “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.”
A trailer for the doc airs January 10 as an episode of the network’s “Hopelessly in Love” series. In series, Faith opens up about their relationship, and it’s being described as “the most controversial love story in hip-hop history, told by those who lived it.”
According to Page Six, the doc claims that “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.”
“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,” Evans said.
Faith, who is a co-administrator of the late rapper’s estate, said the doc mostly uses old edited footage to amp up drama and apparently, she’s not the only one with an issue. She said regarding Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, “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.”
She also stated she will not be promoting the series either. “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 said.
