Aretha Franklin Diagnosed With Cancer

- By Bossip Staff

Fox 2 in Detroit has confirmed that Aretha Franklin has cancer.

A close relative of the legendary singer tells reporter Al Allen that they are very concerned and while the National Enquierer claims that she has pancreatic cancer, that news has yet to be confirmed.
Aretha’s family says she is doing “OK,” but they are still asking for continued prayers and support.

    Oh not pancreatic cancer! That is seriously the worst cancer to have. It takes people out so quick.

  • http://what? I gets down like that

    Wow, just when I was about to believe that all of the comments posted on this thread so far were all positive & no sly remarks about The Queen of Souls weight struggles, then as soon as I get towards the bottom page, the inevitable happens; there one goes talking about she’ll always be the queen of soul food. God bless your soul mister…..Just unbelievable!!!
    Anyways, I hope you pull through this Aunt Retha…..I’ll keep you in my thoughts & prayers

    @ Hannibal: I hope you’re really sincere & didnt mean that. Any form of cancer is very serious…. Do you just be high when you say things like that, or plastered maybe? Or just can’t control yourself????
