Aretha Franklin Changed Her Mind! Maybe A Wedding's Not The Best Idea Right Now…

…and U better R-E-S-P-E-C-T her decision, LOL!!

Looks like Aretha Franklin learned from Kim Kardashian's mistake. She will NOT be wedding long-time "friend" Willie Wilkerson so fast.

It's a little sad, yes, but it sounds like they have good reasoning.

In an official statement from both Aretha AND Willie, they say:

Regretfully, To Our Friends and Supporters: 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.

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. — Aretha & Will.

But don't sound the alarm just yet!! They're still totally tight as ever.

Just sounds like there may be some legit obstacles to overcome (maybe legalities, etc) before they sign anymore contracts.

We wish 'em well!!

  1. 1

    Why should she get married ? They are not starting a family !



  2. 2

    Aretha is what about 90 years old ?

    Move to Shady Pines, forget the wedding

    Better to wait than be sorry and get a pre-nup. Glad Aretha's feeling better and losing weight.
