That didn't last long. It was early last week when Lifetime announced that Disney channel and Dancing With The Stars contestant Zendaya would portray Aaliyah in a new movie on the channel. After Aaliyah's relatives said they would not authorize the use of any of Aaliyah's music for the production though and said they would only do so for a feature movie, Zendaya dropped out. This was going to be a messy production with a lot of negativity and Zendaya didn't want to be involved in that for her first post Disney role. Because of Zendaya dropping out, the production which was set to begin filming in a couple of weeks is on hold.
