Yes, the Aaliyah Lifetime Movie Will Include R. Kelly

If you happened to be wondering (like we were) if the upcoming Aaliyah biopic set to air on Lifetime will include her secret marriage to R. Kelly ... The answer to that question is: Yes, it will. Or so says executive producer Debra Martin Chase to "Page Six":

“Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect. Above all else, it’s our hope to inspire an entirely new generation with her music and larger-than-life talent.”

R. Kelly is presumably not allowed to play himself.
