Natina Reed, rapper in the girl group Blaque, was laid to rest over the weekend after being fatally struck by a vehicle on Oct. 26. Reed, 32, was mourned by family and friends at a funeral service in Lithonia, Georgia.
Reed leaves behind a 10-year-old son, Tren, whom she had with the rapper Kurupt. Both were present at the funeral, as were Reed's fellow Blaque members Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears.
Blaque had two Top 10 singles in 1999 with "808" and "Bring It All to Me" ft. JC Chasez of N'Sync. Their self-titled debut was certified platinum. In a statement last week, Williams and Fears remembered their fallen group member.
"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," they wrote.
Kurupt, who was once engaged to Reed, reportedly handled all the expenses for the memorial service.
