Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes

Fam Disappointed in TLC

Over New 'Waterfalls'

6/23/2013 12:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



The family of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes' feels betrayed by TLC's decision to re-record "Waterfalls" with a Japanese pop star ... because no one even bothered to tell them.

T-Boz and Chili recently released a new version of the group's 90's hit -- in honor of their 20th anniversary . Instead of keeping Left Eye (who died in 2002) on the recording, they replaced her with Namie Amuro (think Britney Spears of Japan).

Left Eye's sister, Reigndrop Lopes, is extremely disappointed, telling TMZ, "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 says her mom was shocked and hurt as well ... because she felt keeping Lisa on the song would have honored her daughter's memory.

Despite her disappointment, Reigndrop added she's alright with the remake ... if, and only if, it's only released in Japan. It's unclear if that's TLC's plan.

Ok, let's just enjoy the original ...



UPDATE: Reigndrop now says she's cool with the remake ... as long as

They just wanted money. History hasn't been rewritten because they re-recorded the song.

The only betrayal is the one the family is doing to their cash cow.

Wow you people are harsh even cruel. I never knew much about or really listened to TLC but I did always like that song. All three of the ladies were beautiful.

Ahhhh I hate it. Should have left perfection as it was. PERFECT. Get a hologram of Lisa to sing with you girls. This little import isn't doing it for me.

Not sure why her family needs to be notified of every song made/remade by TLC.

I always enjoyed the vocal stylings of T-Bone, she really knows how to sing the hell out of a song, although ChilliDog is also up there. No one misses BumEye, that bitch was nothin' but trouble.

Reigndrop?? Seriously??? And if Lisa had not been chasing waterfalls in other countries, she'd still be alive.
