Back in March news leaked that Atlanta music producer Jermaine Dupri had been secretly working on a documentary about his 90s girl group Xscape without any input from the girls.
Now members of the group call Jermaine’s project disrespectful.
Last week TV One confirmed the rumors after announcing ‘Who Can I Run: The Xscape Story’ as part of this years programming during the upfront presentations for 2017.
Meanwhile, Xscape members Kandi Burruss, Tiny Harris, Tameka and LaTocha Scott have been working with Love and Hip Hop producer Mona Scott-Young on a biopic and accompanying docu-series about their reunion.
In a statment to the media Xscape distance themselves from TV One and Jermaine Dupri’s project stating:
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world.”
“This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
