Blaque Release Statement On Death Of Natina Reed / More Details Of Incident Emerge

Published: Saturday 27th Oct 2012 by Sam

As the Urban music community continues to mourn the tragic death of singer Natina Reed, the surviving members of the late star’s group Blaque have released a statement.

The words of Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe come on the heels of further details surrounding the circumstances of Reed’s untimely passing.

Full story below…

Via US Weekly:

“We are devastated by the loss of our group member, sister and friend Natina Reed. Because of the enormous support of Blaque fans and our love for each another, Blaque officially reunited this fall and we were in the process of working on a new album and a reality show. Natina continuously embodied the pioneering spirit of Blaque and her undeniable creativity touched the hearts of fans everywhere. Natina was a mother, sister, accomplished songwriter, artist and friend. We ask for your prayers at this time for Natina’s family. She will forever be missed and her global influence eternally felt. We thank God for the experiences we shared.”

The whole episode is so incredibly sad.

While initially reported as a “hit and run”, authorities close to the investigation have confirmed otherwise.

A press release sent to E! read:

“The driver of the vehicle contacted 911 to request assistance. Natina Reed was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center at 10:59 p.m. E.S.T.

Preliminary information indicates that Reed was in the roadway on Lawrenceville Highway near Hamilton Road when struck. The driver involved was determined to be not at fault and there are no charges pending.” 

Brandi would later tweet:

Shamari added:

 

********

Although a spec of comfort can be sourced from fact that it wasn’t a callous hit and run, the end result isn’t any less painful. For, the reality of the matter is that a woman has died prematurely at the age of 32, and her 10 year old son is now without a mother.

Again, our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to Natina’s family and friends.

Your thoughts?

    You can tell that TGJ has nothing but youngin’ on that come & post on this website because I guarantee you majority of the youngins & some older folk don’t even know who anything about his group. This post should be flooded with comments! SMH! ANYWAY!! I loved Blaque…..& I’m so excited to know that they were on the path to making good music again let alone a reality show….this is so sad. Tomorrow is never promised so live everyday like it’s your last. R.I.P. Babes!!!

    • ENOUGH ONIKA October 27, 2012

      I knew them but it doesn’t matter if people knew them or not, an innocent human being, wife and mother lost her life in a tragic way. That’s what matters…

      • FAF October 27, 2012

        It doesnt matter how many ppl comment as long as its no negativity !!!

        Keep in mind most ppl u think post on this site arent real ppl, its alias accounts

        u say “youngins” like Blaque was some early 90s group, they were of the ’00s..

        R.I.P Natina 🙁

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      Yeah they were signed to left eye productions around 98 or 99 and didn’t get exposure til like early 2000’s. A lot of media sites been saying they were a 90’s group. No they weren’t. They had a couple hits. Wish they coulda got bigger but oh well. RIP to natina

    • PrettyPrissyPrincess October 27, 2012

      HOW THE F*** ARE THEY GONNA THUMB YOU DOWN FOR NOT KNOWING HER OR THE GROUP…I MEAN.. DAMN YALL

      • IDK October 27, 2012

        If thats the case then he should of kept the comment to himself . Either that or he could of simply said RIP because at the end of the day someone died. No matter who it is or was.

    • Monstarebel October 27, 2012

      @PrettyPrissy right!!! I said nothing negative I’m not familiar with this group these gworls on here get pressed about anything

      • IDK October 29, 2012

        next time stay to ya self man

    • Viciousss October 27, 2012

      Then you could have googled her name, the group name, gone on Twitter…almost a dozen other actions than on the post discussing a woman’s death go “Never heard of her”

      That was tacky period, just mature and leave it be.

      • FAF October 28, 2012

        EXACTLY!!!! She was tryna be messy

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      exactly why no one likes you on this site besides your tacky comments.

  13. TLCforLife October 27, 2012

    Its such a sad day, and slightly creepy that Blaque lost a member involved in a car accident, the rapper, and TLC’s Left Eye, who created them, lost her life in a car accident as well.

    Blaque was definitely an underrated group, first album doing pretty well, then all the setbacks and shelved albums, I was really excited for them to get back on the radio 🙁 Prayers go out to her son and the remaining members and family

  14. PYTFROMAL October 27, 2012

    WOW! Soo sad and shocking. I used to love Bring it on when I was younger, used to watch it all the time.”Bring it all to me” used to be my JAM! I read that she was Left Eye’s protege? I don’t know if that’s true if so that makes it soo much more sad being that they died in similar ways. RIP Natina!

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      Bring it all to me was my jam too. Yes, she is left eye’s protogee! Signed the group to her label.

  15. PrettyPrissyPrincess October 27, 2012

    DAMN MISS BOOM LIKE AN 8.0.8. I LIVE HUNTY CUNTY…ANYWAY CALL 712-945-2310 TO COME CHILL IN THE LIVE ROOMS. I’M ON THE H** TONIGHT M** STYLE

  16. dboy6 October 27, 2012

    her life was to similar to left eye thts kinda weird i makes u think abt sumbody controlling the industry forreal so sad lil mama rest in heaven baby gurl

  17. KNUCK October 27, 2012

    This is so sad!! R.I.P!!!

    They should definitely release the “Torch” album for the fans.. The only reason I heard for the shelving was that the album didn’t turn out as good as they wanted it. But the clips are on youtube and the fans love it! It is unacceptable that a great song like “Hopeless” never had an official release. I’m a real fan, but kinda just let it go a few years ago. At least they shot a video for “I’m Good”.. That direction sound wise and image wise was so fresh for them.

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      Glad to see a true fan like you emerge from all the tragedy. Stay strong. I wasn’t a diehard fan but I did like a few of their songs. I’m good was my jam too. Still love it to this day.

  18. IDK October 27, 2012

    RIP.

  19. Liz October 27, 2012

    R.I.P. Natina 🙁 Prayers for your son, fam and friends.

  20. nick October 27, 2012

    so sad RIP!

  21. Viciousss October 27, 2012

    Poor woman, she had one of those personalities that popped up in everything she did: music videos, movies, interviews…she was so very vibrant.

    I feel the worst for her son, I’m glad it wasn’t a hit and run but it’s so horrible when it seems like a death that could have been avoided. Sigh. Prayers and blessings to the family.

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      Yes, I knew a friend’s family member that died of a hit and run accident. Was only a little girl too. It’s definitely sad and tragic!!! I hate deaths that could be avoided. :(((

  22. Tbozfan10 October 28, 2012

    Does anybody know if she is the member of the group who rapped? It would be so weird if she was because left eye founded this group to follow the tlc pattern of 2 singers and 1 rapper and strange how it happened this way.

    • FAF October 28, 2012

      yeah thats her… she had beef w/ foxy brown back in the day over kurupt thats her sons father

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

      Natina was the rapper of the group, yes. Shoulda heard the rap in 808 remix. Lol. It was cute. She wasn’t as good a rapper like Left Eye but she wasn’t bad either. The group was definitely promising at one point.

  23. BAD BYTCH October 28, 2012

    I LIVE RIGHT BY GWINNETT MEDICAL HOSPITAL, EVERYTIME I LOOK AT IT LATELY SHE COMES TO MIND

  26. prettigurlrockD bitchess October 28, 2012

    Anyone find it odd? Left Eye got into a tragic car accident in 2002. Ten year laters 2012, Natina the offspring off the group gets into a similar accident. ANYONE NOTICE THE YEARS END IN 2?? They both were rappers! WOW. What ashame. It’s sad how deaths can repeat themselves in a circle of people close or related to eachother. RIP.

  27. Sketch October 28, 2012

    This is in deed sad news. I will pray for her and her fam. man im so sad faced right now. But if there is any up side to this..shes n heaven now where we hope and pray to be when its our time. God bless her and her fam and comfort her sons heart.
