No Hamptons Wedding for Aretha IN THE NEWS

Jump to Comments

We were that close to a royal wedding when the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, announced her engagement last month and said she was looking at the Hamptons as a possible locale.   Sadly, the wedding has been called off.

In a statement released yesterday, Franklin said, “Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly. There will be no wedding at this time,” Franklin said. “We will not comment on it any further because of the very personal and sensitive nature of it.  We appreciate all of the many well wishes from friends.”

Let’s give the lady some r-e-s-p-e-c-t, please.
