ATLANTA (AP) _ Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Andre Rison told a radio station he’ll be married next month to singer Lisa ``Left-Eye″ Lopes, who torched his $1.3 million mansion in 1994.
Rison made an impromptu visit Wednesday to hip-hop station WHTA-FM and announced that he and Lopes, part of the Grammy-winning trio TLC, would wed July 5 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Thursday.
Rison, 34, who played last season for the Oakland Raiders, gave no other details on the station, known as Hot-97.5.
Lopes, 30, could not be reached for comment, but the botanical garden confirmed it has a July 5 reservation for a ``Lopes wedding,″ the newspaper said.
Lopes shared Rison’s Alpharetta, Ga., home at the time she started a fire that destroyed the house following a fight. They broke up after that, but later got back together.
