Aaliyah's Family Apparently Says "No" to Biopic

Aaliyah's family is apparently unhappy with Lifetime's plans to produce a biopic.

Unsurprisingly, fans aren’t the only ones not feeling the idea of Lifetime’s forthcoming Aaliyah biopic starring former Disney star Zendaya Coleman. According to reports, the family of the late singer are not happy about this recent announcement either.

The beloved singer’s uncle and former manager, Barry Hankerson, recently spoke with TMZ on behalf of the family and he says that they’re extremely upset over it all.
