I knew it would only be a matter of time before Nina Simone’s daughter Simone would have her say about the controversial biopic attached to her famous mother.

According to Indiewire.com, Simone posted a comment on Thursday via Facebook about the film.  Simone, who is a successful Broadway actress and singer in her own right, says that the project is unauthorized and that filmmakers never asked for permission nor did they consult with the Nina Simone Estate.

She also says the film’s plot which is based on an alleged romantic relationship between Nina and her Paris-based manager Clifton Henderson is totally inaccurate because he was gay!
