THERE WAS NO LEAVING ONCE THEY MET
In the 1 minute 17 seconds video released on YouTube by Lifetime, Rison said about the first time he met Left-Eye:
"She walked in, and I said to myself, 'You know what, I'll take that one right there.'"
He added that he was deeply in love, although he was not a man used to dating one woman when they met. At the time, Rison was a quarterback in the NFL.
THEY REDEFINED TUMULTUOUS RELATIONSHIP
The trailer also revealed that the former footballer was afraid that a relationship would ruin his career. That didn't stop the two from getting together as Left-Eye was "Crazy" about the ex-NFL star.

Things between the two didn't go as smooth as they thought it would be. The love between them became the fuel that infused what became a toxic relationship.
FUEL TO THE FIRE
Lifetime's website notes that:
"Untold secrets will be revealed on how these star-crossed lovers ended up facing the ultimate tragedy."

DIFFERENT BENEATH THE SURFACE
The two overcame the dark days of their lives and became stronger due to them. At the turn of the 21st century, they got married, but it was short-lived.
In 2002, while vacationing in Honduras, the TLC rapper suffered a car crash and died at the age of 30. The trip got filmed, and in 2007, VH1 turned it into a documentary titled "Last Days of Left Eye."

The film also had an in-depth look into the life of Left-Eye before she became famous. It revealed that the rapper was more than the girl who was the life of the party.
Rison saw that part of her despite their fights, and for him, the good outweighs the bad. "Hopelessly in Love" premiered on January 4th, on Lifetime.
