Not so fast! Aretha Franklin who was supposed to walk down the aisle this summer, has called off her wedding. Aretha who got engaged to longtime friend William “Willie” Wilkerson over the holidays issued the following statement:
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.
