Production Team Clarifies Rumors Surrounding Fantasia's Mahalia Jackson Biopic

Is that a publicity stunt we smell?

Less than a week after rumors surfaced that Mahalia Jackson’s family didn’t want her legacy tainted by all of the things that are un-Christian about Fantasia, the production team has issued an apology to ‘Tasia for stressing her out.

The producers behind the upcoming Mahalia Jackson biopic say they’re embarrassed over statements made by financial backer Adrian Taylor to Page Six about Jackson’s family not wanting a pregnant Fantasia Barrino to play the legendary gospel singer in the movie. Double Dutch Productions issued a statement on Tuesday saying Taylor, a financing broker, “didn’t have authority to speak on the film’s behalf” and “is not an employee of this production company … The Mahalia Jackson family has not made any negative comments, none whatsoever, about Ms. Barrino and her participation in this film project.”

And just like that, the movie that was having issues with financial backing is in headlines for the third time in a week. See how that works?
