Natina Reed - Kurupt Remembers Deceased Star Natina Reed

Following the sad death of Natina Reed  - known by fans of late 1990s R&B fans as the MC of group Blaque - her former boyfriend Kurupt gave a glowing tribute to someone who was an integral part of his life.

Reed was recently struck by a car whilst crossing a street, causing her to die just two days short of her 33rd birthday. In a statement to MTV, Kurupt commented  "Myself and Tren, Natina's son, would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this tragic time. This is a tremendous loss to our family. Natina was a great person and I wish everyone had the opportunity to meet her and know her as I did." The pair were never married, but were engaged for some time in the early 2000s as well as having Tren together, their 10 year-old son.

Reed’s death is an especially poignant one given that her mentor, TLC star Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, also died in tragic circumstances in 2002 aged just 30. Blaque enjoyed considerable chart success during their prime, with hits like ‘808’ and ‘Bring It All To Me’ making them household names. A police spokesperson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution thatas of right now, it does not appear that the driver has any fault in this event,” regarding the incident that led to Reed’s death.
