It seems as though actress/singer Zendaya Coleman was not able to bask in her excitement about being cast as Aaliyah Haughton for too long because she backed out of the project just two weeks after being offered the role.

Haughton’s family never approved of the singer’s life being portrayed through a Lifetime movie to begin with, and that could have something to do with Coleman’s decision to give up the role.

Barry Hankerson, Haughton’s uncle and former manager, claimed that Lifetime never even contacted the family in regards to a movie about the singer’s life and that the family vowed to stop the production of the biopic by any means necessary.

Coleman had already been receiving backlash from people around the world who felt that she would not do Haughton’s character justice. One of the many issues that people had was that Coleman was not “black enough” for the character.
