In news that can only be deemed the most tragic of tragic, various sources are confirming that singer Natina Reed from R&B group Blaque (center) was killed in Atlanta late last night (October 26th).
Details remain sketchy at present, however a number of notable Atlanta figures state that Reed died after being hit by a car as she crossed the street. The car in question is said to have then sped off.
Reid, who is survived by 10 year old son Tren Brown (whose father is rapper Kurupt), was just 32.
The tragedy will see many look to the untimely passing of TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes – who many will remember championed Blaque upon their debut in the late 90’s. Lopes died, aged 30, in a car accident in 2002.
Tomorrow would have been Reid’s 33rd birthday.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Natina’s family and friends.
R.I.P Natina Reed of the group Blaque… She was killed last night in Atlanta.. Tomorrow would have been her birthday..
