According to an absolutely ridiculous report on the outlandish gossip website MediaTakeOut, Disney star Zendaya has been replaced by Rihanna in an upcoming biopic about late singer, Aaliyah.
An insider tells the staff of trolls, “The [Zendaya] backlash is huge. Either the network is going to have to replace her, or shut down production. Right now they’re negotiating with Rihanna to play Aaliyah. And [Rihanna’s] interested.”
This imaginary insider is clearly not in the know because production on the film hasn’t even started yet, so there is no production to shut down. And even more ridiculous is the website’s belief that one of the biggest pop stars on the planet would appear in a Lifetime movie playing another pop star.
MTO then goes on to offer their congratulations to Rih on a story they likely fabricated, writing that the Barbadian pop star is “well on her way to becoming one of the TOP ACTRESSES in the world.” Honestly, have you seen Battlefield? GTFOH.
Unlike other websites that just make up stuff for hits, we actually talk to celebrities including Zendaya who had her own response to haters who want to see her replaced in the film.
Update: A spokesperson for Lifetime tells HipHollywood exclusively that the Rihanna rumor is not true.
