It was rumored months ago that the upcoming Aaliyah biopic on Lifetime would touch on Aaliyah’s controversial past with fellow R&B singer R Kelly, and some were beginning to suspect that is the main reason the deceased singer’s family wouldn’t get on board with the film.
Interestingly enough, the film’s executive producer Wendy Williams recently confirmed that the movie will address the R Kelly situation.
She tells Orlando Sentinel:
“We let you know what happened with Aaliyah and R. Kelly. Nothing is distasteful. You don’t want to be distasteful, but you need to tell a story.”
