The Jasmine Brand has reported that members of Stacy Lattisaw’s family are upset with how she was portrayed in The New Edition Story. According to the site,
Lattisaw and Johnny Gill dated in the late 80s and had the duet, “Where Do We Go from Here.” In the movie, Gill’s character — played by Luke James, suggested that his dark complexion may have been the reason why the two broke up.
Stacy’s brother has spoken out about how he feels his sister and family were portrayed in the biopic. Jerry Lattisaw said,
“My mom don’t care about what color Johnny Gill is!!! If it wasn’t for her, he wouldn’t be in New Edition period!!! She basically got him his first record deal …. by the way, Stacy husband is brownskin too!!! How they gon’ put my motha out there like that! JG u still my brother tho!”
Too funny. Was it even necessary, though?
