Motown Ain’t Safe For Aretha Franklin’s Son??? Eddie Franklin Hospitalized After Severe Beating At Detroit Gas Station

Aretha Franklin and son Eddie at the Apollo Benefit June 2010

These hooligans in Detroit must’ve lost they damn minds!!! Eddie Franklin, the son of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, suffered a brutal beatdown Monday night at a gas station. SMH. What the hell is wrong with people???

Aretha Franklin’s son was severely beaten at a gas station in Detroit, the singing legend’s spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Eddie Franklin was attacked Monday night and was undergoing surgery at a hospital, Gwendolyn Quinn said in a statement. She said three people may have been involved in the attack, but did not address a possible motive.

Quinn told The Associated Press she didn’t have any additional information beyond the written statement.

Detroit police spokeswoman Eren Stephens said a female acquaintance was with Franklin just before the beating took place. The woman walked into the gas station, and when she returned, the assault had taken place, Stephens said.

Police said the woman then drove Franklin to the hospital, dropped him off and headed to a police station to file a report.

Stephens said investigators want to talk to Franklin about the circumstances of the attack once he’s able to speak to them.

SMH at “once he’s able to speak to them”. They have beaten this man until he required SURGERY!!! Are we human beings or animals???

We’re praying for a full and swift recovery for Eddie Franklin.

This is some damn mess.

    @Glok, really dude? I am a psychologist and believe me you are compensating for some deeper issues. Your life is closed captioned because it’s either too boring to matter or you’re hiding the scared little boy within you behind ALL CAPS typing. Dude you’re a joke.

    Let’s face it…Detroit is a war zone. Wish him all the best in his recovery. The GOOD people of Detroit need their city back.

    @Nana, i’m all for the jokes but let somebody beat you to within an inch of your life, hospitalize you for what sounds like a simple robbery. Meaning just because you look like you have more than them the beat the sh!t outta you. Then let’s tell some jokes about Nana, how does that sound? Have some sensitivity ppl.

  • ms mary~

    To GLOK, PRAY! BECAUSE SOMEBODY MAY BEAT YOU ONE DAY (AND IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN) YOU MUST PAY FOR YOUR CRUEL WORDS. ALSO FOR THE REST OF YOU, STOP PRAY FOR MS FRANKLIN AND HER SON, WHILE NOT GIVING VOICE TO A MENTAL CASE LIKE GLOK AND THOSE WHO AGREE WITH HIM. EVEN ANIMALS HAVE FEELING FOR EACH OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Dirk, my family is from there and I miss home very much, hold on lemme handle this character. Sorry I called you out Glok did I open the closet door? It’s ok i’m sure your mammy still loves you… and for your lil co-signers/fan club i’m very calm and honestly am finding humor in the fact that this person feels like he’s doing anything with the misspelled all caps. Really for anyone that can’t recognize buffoonery when they see it (Glok learn how to communicate moron) I nor any of the people that died to give us these simple freedoms can help you. Back @ Dirk the D is in my core.
