*Just in case you werre hoping Missy Elliot and Timbaland would change their mind about the new Aaliyah project, they both confirmed they will not be participating in the album.

Missy’s reps released an official statement explaining that neither of them want to be a part of the process.

“Although Missy and Timbaland always strive to keep the memory of their close friend alive, we have not been contacted about the project nor are there any plans at this time to participate.” She continues, “We’ve seen the reports surfacing that they have been confirmed to participate but that is not the case. Both Missy and Timbaland are very sensitive to the loss still being felt by the family so we wanted to clear up any misinformation being circulated.”

So there you have it.

Missy was also concerned with impressing upon the masses the wrong message about her relationship with Aaliyah.

“Tim and I carry Aaliyah with us everyday, like so many of the people who love her. She will always live in our hearts. We have nothing but love and respect for her memory and for her loved ones left behind still grieving her loss. They are always in our prayers.”
