Gaaah! So many conflicting reports, WHAT are we to believe?!
So if you haven't heard, Drake is a massive Aaliyah fan and has been remastering previously unreleased material to be unleashed as a posthumous album later this year…
Awesome possum, right?!
Initially, we'd heard that Aaliyah's old recording chums Missy Elliott and Timbaland were peeved to the max that Drake hadn't involved them in his musical schemes, AND rumors said the album was not supported by Aaliyah's family!
But THEN we heard confirmation from Aaliyah's cousin and manager of Blackground records Jomo Hankerson that YES, a 16 track album featuring unreleased Aaliyah tracks will happen, and that Missy and Timbaland's involvement was gar-un-teed!!
Well, we guess that was a giant psych-out because Missy's rep is denying

Reportedly, Missy is suing a Florida car dealership, Fox Valley Motor Cars, for not following through on a sale agreement!
The rapstress claims she made an agreement last year to purchase a 2012 Matte White Lambo Aventador for a whopping $376,000.
The agreement read that Missy was to make a down payment of $30,000 in cash, as well as trade in her $85,000 Bentley in return for the Lambo.
Well, it looks like Missy stuck to her end of the deal, but the dealership FAILED to ship her the car by mid 2012, as they promised and agreed to!
Now that we're over the mid-year mark, Elliott took it upon herself to ask Fox Valley what was up and they are now demanding MORE money for the whip, because the market value had risen!!
Missy’s suing the
