Aaliyah Biopic - Lead Star Drops Out of Movie

 
Posted Monday, June 30th 2014 @ 10am

Disney channel star Zendaya Coleman has officially dropped out of Lifetime’s planned biopic about Aaliyah after Aaliyah’s family spoke out against the movie.

Zendaya’s rep says that she is no longer involved with the project.

Sources close to production say there were a bunch of factors that played a part in her dropping out, including the negative reaction from Aaliyah’s family. 

For now, Lifetime says the production has been put on hold. 

Aalyiah’s uncle and former manger said that no one from the network contacted them before announces the movie and they believe that Aaliyah deserves big screen treatment. 

So far, Lifetime hasn’t said if they’re going to continue with production.
