Exclusive: Faith Evans Compares Trayvon Martin’s Case To Biggie’s
Two weeks after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, celebrities continue to react to the verdict and the case that has fueled controversy nation wide.
While at Roland Martin’s annual Hollywood soiree Wednesday night, HipHollywood caught up with Faith Evans who expressed her own personal feelings and thoughts. “I certainly didn’t expect that to be the verdict,” Faith shared.
“I wasn’t in the jury, I don’t know what they were really presented with … I’ve been in that situation where I’ve been in court, and the public doesn’t really know everything that went on in the court. That’s kind of a sticky one to talk about when you weren’t in there, because I’ve been there,” Evans explained.
Faith, who was married to Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G” Wallace before his death in 1997, compared her own personal experience of losing a loved one and wanting justice served.
“It’s a tragic situation. Unlike my situation with us still trying to find the person who killed our loved one … they know who did it. And even though he’s not brought to justice, that’s a different felling than not really knowing, or not having that person right there on the stand,” the R&B Divas creator shared.
“I hope that they do find the justice that they’re looking for,” Evans added.
