CONFIRMED: Zendaya No Longer Starring in Aaliyah Biopic

Actress Zendaya Coleman

Lifetime confirmed that Zendaya Coleman will no longer portray Aaliyah in the late singer’s biopic. The network posted from their Twitter account, saying that Zendaya has pulled out and production is currently on hold.

When asked why she gave up the role, Coleman was reported as saying, “I didn’t feel like [production] was all the way there, so I didn’t want to do that. And when the time comes, when it’s done right and it’s 100 percent, by all means, I will be the first person there ready to go.”

Coleman went on to say that it was hard to give up the role, but she thinks Aaliyah deserves something more.

“She deserves something really, really incredible and so I would rather wait for that,” she said.

When news of the Aaliyah biopic first broke, Coleman faced harsh criticism for being “too light” to portray Aaliyah and not resembling her in the least bit. Despite many fans’ disapproval, Coleman was ready and willing to play the role.
