When a life is in danger and the exact reason why is unknown, rumors can start flying.
That’s exactly what happened with Aretha Frankin, who was reported to have pancreatic cancer by “a family insider.” It turns out that “family insider” was wrong.
Said Aretha on the rumors:
"Well, there was just so many wild things out there and just so many things being said that weren't true. I just felt I needed to address it a little."
After a few procedures, doctors were able to figure out what was wrong with her, but she wants to keep it under wraps, so we may never know.
The most important thing is that Aretha is alright. Our Queen of Soul will live to sing another day!!
