Lifetime's new docuseries, "Hopelessly in Love" takes a more in-depth look into the relationship between Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Andre Rison, as well as others and has gotten many Twitter users heated up. 


The new docuseries which began airing on January 4th will, apart from Lisa and Andre's relationship, also chronicle the love stories of rap legend, Notorious B.I.G., and Faith Evans, and Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead. 

Many viewers have already taken into the series after its premiere. They have been sharing their views on social media after details about Left Eye and Andre Rison's relationship were revealed.

Much of those who commented expressed surprise at the fact that the former T.L.C. member and Tupac once had a thing. One Twitter user asked,

"So Left Eye and Tupac were creeping?"

Another user revealed in the new knowledge gained from the series, writing,

"I was today years old when I found out that Left Eye and Tupac dated."

While a third person picked off on an iconic

moment and wrote


"T.L.C. capitalizing off of Left Eye burning Andre Rison's home will forever be iconic. I don't care."

The tweet was followed by a photo showing T.L.C. members as the cover of Vibe magazine's November 1994 cover. 


Another Twitter user shared a short clip of Left Eye thanking the Atlanta Police Department during the MTV Awards, and wrote  "Left Eye thanking the Atlanta Police Department is still hilarious."

These issues didn't stop their relationship, but only seemed to bring them closer, as they were planning to marry until Left Eye's death

Left Eye and Andre Rison met in 1993 at a nightclub. The former N.F.L. star then invited the singer to his unfurnished home, telling her that he was waiting for her before putting any furniture.

They began dating and did so for over a decade, but their explosive relationship was filled with so many controversies, which got to a head when Lopes burnt down Andre's Georgia mansion. 

All of these issues didn't stop their relationship but only seemed to bring them closer, as they were planning to marry until Left Eye's death in a car crash in Honduras in 2002.
