I know but it's always whispers.  I don't like how r Kelly tried to make it seem like aaliyah lied about her age.  I remember people always putting it on her like that's why he said "show me some I'd" on bump n grind...like nga please.

Outside of her alleged scandals was her life really that interesting? I remember being a fan growing up, trying to dress and dance like her, but her career was just starting to take off when she passed away. I would enjoy hearing her music on film tho.

Zendaya has backed out of her starring role in the Lifetime movie about late R&B singer Aaliyah.

The 17-year-old Disney Channel star is "no longer involved" in the project, a rep for the actress confirmed to the Daily News Sunday.

The news of her departure comes less than two weeks after it was first announced that Zendaya would portray the "Back and Forth" singer in the Lifetime biopic, tentatively titled "Aaliyah: Princess of R&B." Production was scheduled to begin this summer, and the network hoped for a fall release.

But complications, and a new search for the lead, might warrant a push-back for the film. There were also production issues surrounding the project, a source told E! News, citing problems acquiring rights to do Aaliyah's music.

The late singer's family has been vocal about their opposition to the idea of a small screen adaptation for Aaliyah's story - instead they want a feature film - and about their plans to block Lifetime from acquiring any rights to the songs.


"We want a major studio release along the lines of 'What's Love Got to Do with It,' the Tina Turner movie," Jomo Hankerson, Aaliyah's cousin and president of her label, Blackground Records, told the Daily News.

"This needs A-list actors, A-list talent that can breathe life into what we think is a phenomenal story."

I dont think that Aaliyah would want her life made into a small screen or big screen film since she treasured privacy. The whole project should be scrapped all together.

not really on topic, but i didnt know until recently that rkelly tricked andrea kelly into marriage the same way that he tricked aaliyah (said, oh we have to go up to the hotel room for something and a pastor & witness were there with a marriage cert for her to sign). all this time, i thought that andrea had a traditional proposal & wedding ceremony.

Tina turner? ...nah booboo



An aaliyah story that downplays or ignore her relationship with rkelly is not a movie worth watching.
