Left Eye's family angry at reworked TLC hit Waterfalls

Jun 24, 2013 | 1:24pm EDT

The family of tragic rapper Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes has slammed her former Tlc bandmates for re-recording their classic hit Waterfalls with a Japanese singer in the late star's place. Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozanda 'Chilli' Thomas recently teamed up with Asian R&B artist Namie Amuro for a reworking of their signature song in celebration of the group's 20th anniversary, but the news has angered Lopes' relatives, who had no idea of their plans to re-work the track. The rapper's sister, Reigndrop Lopes, tells, "I did not know about it until a fan posted it online. I mean, it would have been nice if they would have given us a heads up before being surprised." Reigndrop also reveals her mother was "hurt" by Watkins and Thomas' decision to cut Lopes from the tune, 11 years after she was killed in a car crash in Honduras. The new version of Waterfalls features on greatest hits album TLC 20, which was released in Japan last week (begs17Jun13).
