Mona Scott-Young To Executive Produce Xscape Biopic
Last month, TV One excitedly announced they were producing an Xscape biopic with Jermaine Dupri as executive producer.
Turns out the group isn’t happy about TV One’s unauthorized biopic. The R&B group is calling it “disrespectful” and “disappointing.”
Xscape has teamed up with the Fairy Godmother of reality TV, Mona Scott-Young, to create their own biopic with Scott as executive producer.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
“Xscape has had a huge impact on music and are one of the most successful female groups of all time. Monami Entertainment is honored to be charged with bringing the authorized Xscape story to the world.” says Scott-Young.
Well, this is getting awkward.
