June 9, 1994

On this day in 1994, TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, upset after an argument with her boyfriend, NFL star Andre Rison, set his shoes on fire in his bathtub using lighter fluid. Things quickly took a turn for the worst when the flames melted the plexiglass tub and caught onto the frame of the house.

Rison’s mansion was burned to the ground and Lopes is charged with first degree arson. She was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.

The couple remained together after the incident.
