The family of late R&B singer Aaliyah reportedly does not support any posthumous albums that are currently in the making, it has been revealed.

Rashad Haughton, Aaliyah's brother, recently spoke out "regarding upcoming album release rumors" following rapper Drake's release of "Enough Said," a song featuring never-before-heard vocals from the late singer.

"There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family," Haughton said in a statement posted on Aaliyah's fan page.

Drake, formerly known as Aubrey Drake Graham, released the new song just a few weeks shy of the 11th anniversary of Aaliyah's death Aug. 25. The 25-year-old is said to be producing a posthumous album in her name and he recently spoke to U.K. radio personality Tim Westwood regarding his new project.

"I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon, you know it's hard for me to ride around to a female singer because at the end of the day, you're a man, but she always kept it so G with the writing and the melodies. It was something to ride to, especially when it was chopped and screwed. That's when I used to love," Drake told Westwood.

Timothy Zachery Mosley, better known as "Timbaland," is also rumored to be producing the upcoming album. The 40-year-old was a close friend and confidant of Aaliyah's and produced most of her sophomore album "One In A Million." He recently addressed the posthumous album rumors.

"I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and Missy [Elliot]. The proper way for him to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. But to put it on his record, would just not be right," Timbaland told Power 105.1 radio station.

Reports of an Aaliyah biopic film being made have also surfaced in recent weeks, to which Haughton appears less than enthusiastic about.

"No female I've seen can play my sister. -Rashad," Haughton posted via Aaliyah's Facebook Fan Page.
