Aaliyah’s Cousin: Aaliyah Deserves More Than A Lifetime Movie

(AllHipHop News) Aaliyah’s family has voiced their displeasure over Lifetime’s refusal to contact them when creating their new movie Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. Aaliyah’s cousin Jomo Hankerson, becomes the latest member of Aaliyah’s family to speak out against the Lifetime movie.

Jomo Hankerson was not only Aaliyah’s cousin but is currently the president of her label Blackground Records. Hankerson, speaking with New York Daily News, admits she has no problem with Zendaya Coleman playing Aaliyah. However, one of Hankerson’s main gripes is with what she feels Aaliyah’s legacy deserves:

I don’t have a problem with her. It’s never been about the actress. The problem that we have is that Aaliyah was an icon and she deserves an iconic tribute, not a Lifetime movie.

Hankerson went on to state the family wants “a major studio release along the lines of ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It,’ the Tina Turner movie.” The Lifetime movie is based on Chris Farley’s biography Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.
