After some controversy, Lifetime began promoting their upcoming TV movie Aaliyah. The teaser, however short, allows a glimpse into a story that is set to retell the life of R&B queen Aaliyah who was tragically killed in a plane crash in 2001. From the beginning, the production encountered numerous difficulties as the family of the late singer strongly opposed ( and still is against) the project. There was also the situation with the main actress who was replaced rather quick after the beginning of the shooting. Alexandra Shipp was brought in to replace Zendaya who complained about the production standards and the story that she felt “a little rushed”
The Lifetime movie is scheduled to air on November, 15.
