AALIYAH: Worth More Than a Lifetime

Posted June 25th, 2014 @ 10:00am


Aaliyah's family isn't done complaining about Lifetime's bio-pic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B.

Jomo Hankerson, Aaliyah's cousin and current president of her label Blackground Records, is the latest to speak up. He tells New York's Daily News that he has no problem with Zendaya Coleman playing her, but "...Aaliyah was an icon and she deserves an iconic tribute, not a Lifetime movie." He says the family wants "a major studio release along the lines of What’s Love Got to Do with It, the Tina Turner movie.”

Lifetime's movie, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, will be based on Chris Farley’s biography Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.
