Producers defend marriage scene

14 Nov, 2014

Lifetime’s Aaliyah: Princess of R&B biopic executive producers Chase and Farley defend their choice to include the controversial marriage between R.Kelly and Aaliyah. They argue that Kelly was a part of Aaliyah’s life and an important influence. Chase:

The evidence is there that they were married, we tried to keep it very tasteful and respectful in our portrayal. Biopics are hard people have an opinion and social media allows them to voice that opinion. But at the end of the day, our goal was to make the best movie possible.
