Guess the casting directors are going to have to Try Again!

Disney star Zendaya Coleman was all set to play the part of the late singer Aaliyah for a Lifetime biopic, but not anymore.

After Aaliyah’s family made their opinions public about Zendaya representing their baby girl known, the 17-year-old actress decided that she didn’t want to be involved anymore. And there were reportedly some other factors as well, though those haven’t been revealed.

So, Lifetime has paused production, and innerestingly, they aren’t sure if the show will go on at all anymore!

What an unexpected development! We’ll keep you posted on any other moves!

    She'd still be alive if she had not insisted on overloading the small plane with tons of luggage.

    Re: teeter totter – thank you. everyone wants to praise her now, but people forget it was kind of her fault for the crash.

    Re: yup – Really??? Get your facts together the guy who flew the plan was drunk, it was his first time flying a plane, and he wasn't even a certified pilot. So its the airlines fault for letting that slip through the cracks

    I always thought Keshia Chante wouldve played her, she looks most like Aaliyah

    I am happy she made the decision not to do it. No body's hating, she is not anywhere close to Aaliyah to play that part. Thank you everyone who made this happen.
