Well, we guess we can all stop holding out hope that this is one of those quickie romances.

You better THINK before you're rude to this legend!
Aretha Franklin recently nailed a sold out show at Niagara Falls when she stopped in at a local Johnny Rockets to grab some take out food. But when the Queen of Soul decided to sit down anyway and eat her fast food there - one of the servers was NOT having it!
All because the server believed that Aretha was violating the restaurant's take out policy.
But when you're a 72-year-old living legend - we'd say the rules at Johnny Rockets were MADE to be be broken! And as it turns out - Aretha wasn't violating anything!
Afterwards, Aretha vocalized her complaints and described the worker's behavior towards her as "very rude, unprofessional and nasty."
Ugh! We hate that this happened to Aretha!
Johnny Rockets, for their part, are very apologetic about the whole thing and have told Aretha's people that they've already talked to the "unprofessional" employee and have taught them how their take out policy really works.
Especially when it comes to Aretha!
We're not saying that Johnny Rockets should treat celebrities any differently than non-celebrities mind you. We're just saying you should always show R-E-S-P-E-C-T to this natural woman.
Otherwise you're just a fool working in a chain fast food restaurant!
A few weeks ago, a satirical site called The News Nerds published an outrageous article about Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin getting into a little tiff.
The satirical site "reported":
"While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her."
Needless to say, the Respect singer did not take too kindly to their fake claims.
A few days after the fake story went viral, Aretha posted a response, dismissing the scuffle between the two songstresses, but apparently that wasn't enough!
In fact, Aretha just filed a $10 million lawsuit against The Onion wannabe site!
Through her publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, the queen of soul said:
From a super-public ass-grab at the VMAs, to a marriage possibly wrecked by allegations of philandering, to a chart-smashing music video with themes & imagery so salacious it could make a dominatrix blush, 2013 was quite a year for Robin Thicke!
And we haven't even mentioned his wildly scandalous VMA dance with Miley Cyrus! How could we forget that?
The End Violence Against Women Coalition sure didn't! They just bestowed upon him a super unfortunate superlative, in fact — they named him 2013's SEXIST OF THE YEAR!
Yikes, that's not a trophy we think he'd like to set out on the mantle!
Sarah Green, a spokesperson for the coalition, thinks Robin's sexist failings were so obvious and unavoidable that he actually helped bring light to her cause. She admitted:
President Barack Obama made one heck of a splling mstake on Thursday night!
When introducing the legendary Aretha Franklin at a Women of Soul tribute at the White House, the Prez referenced her classic song Respect.
Only he spelled it a little differently! He said:
"When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans and women and anyone else who felt marginalized because of what they looked like, who they loved. They wanted some respect."
At least he didn't introduce her as Adele Dazeem! We're not sure if he even noticed his error, but the crowd sure did! See the laugh-inspiring gaffe …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
At 71 years old, when your health is in jeopardy, things are always up in the air. Nothing is guaranteed, and it's a scary thing!
For Aretha Franklin, it looks like she took the right steps to make sure her ongoing health problems are no more — and she's now calling her recovery and improvement 'miraculous.'
We're just happy she's okay!
If you remember, Aretha had to cancel a BUNCH of shows, worrying fans those close to her alike. Strangely, she never said exactly what the problem was — and we STILL have no idea!
BUT, she did give an update on her health, saying:
This is certainly one way to make an entrance.
Or maybe we did. LOLz!
The model showed up the the ANTM Cycle 20 celebration on Wednesday in El Lay and stole the spotlight.
Miz D'Amato previously said that her pregnancy was really uncomfortable, but she seemed to be over that phase while striking a pose in her black crop top and pleated maxi skirt. Oh, and did we mention her hat? Because, she's giving Aretha Franklin a run for her money!
It’s an outrageous look for sure, but we wouldn’t expect anything less of her.

The weirdest part about Aretha Franklin canceling a show in her home town is not that she's canceling the show, but that her reason is super vague!
We hope she's okay!
According to the singer, she's going though an ongoing 'treatment.' There is no word on WHAT that treatment is, or if we should be really worried!
