Zendaya Coleman Exits Aaliyah Movie

Zendaya Coleman has pulled out of the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic, titled “Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B.” Zendaya was slated to play the role of Aaliyah in the movie, which is set to tell the story of Aaliyah’s life and career leading up to her tragic passing in a plane crash at the age of 22.

Zendaya received a lot of hate for taking on the role, but that is reportedly not the reason for her leaving the movie. According to sources Lifetime did not secure the rights to Aaliyah’s music and Zendaya didn’t want to do the movie without Aaliyah’s songs.

A source told the press:

Aaliyah has always been an inspiration to Zendaya. She was honored to portray her and pay tribute to her. If she is going to do it, she wants to do it right.

Lifetime released the following statement about Zendaya leaving the movie:

We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold.

What a bummer! Hopefully the music rights are obtained and Zendaya comes back to the movie. If not, who else would you like to see in the role of Aaliyah?
