The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and her soon to be hubby Willie were just spotted here in Washington DC all cozy at the BET Honors pre-dinner above. So what the heck happened?
We’ll after three weeks of passionate love-making (that we are not going discuss), the couple who were once set to jump the broom will not be getting married. Check out what Aretha had to say after the jump.
A statement released Monday by her representative said Franklin’s wedding to Willie Wilkerson wasn’t going to happen.
“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.” [source]
And I was rooting for them….dang!
