MTV News caught up with TLC’s longtime producer Dallas Austin for his reaction following the death of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes on Thursday night in Honduras. Austin recalled how he found out saying, “I was at Orlando Jones’ house [Thursday night]. We was all ready to go out. I was joking because they was playing ‘Waterfalls’ downstairs. I was like, ‘I know this n—a ain’t playing ‘Waterfalls.’ He’s tripping.’ And at the same time, a two-way [page] went off saying Lisa got killed in a car wreck. [I was thinking,] ‘Are they playing, are they serious? Maybe that’s why the music is playing so loud downstairs.’ Then I called Rozonda, [and] she was like, ‘Yeah.’ The crazy part about it is that you’re hoping this is one of those times Lisa was pulling something.” Read more, including comments by Jermaine Dupri.
