Poor Thang: Aretha Franklin Hospitalized Again For Freak Jimmy Choo Spike Heel Accident

- By Bossip Staff

Poor ReRe, we hope she feels better soon:

Aretha Franklin recently paid a visit to an Indianapolis hospital, her rep tells Us Weekly. And though the Queen of Soul, 69, overcame a life-threatening illness earlier this year, the medical issue this time was minor — but still awfully painful! While at her Dallas hotel, the Grammy winner accidentally stumbled over a pile of shoes, and her left foot landed atop the spike heel of her Jimmy Choo. Her left index toe “hurt like heck for a minute but seemed to subside,” Franklin said. Several days later, Franklin got an x-ray at Community North Hospital in Indianapolis — revealing a fractured left index toe.

“I’m so grateful it wasn’t my right piano peddle foot, I have a gig on July 27th at the Jones Beach Theatre in New York!” joked Franklin, whose toe and foot were wrapped after the X-ray. One complaint: “How am I supposed to match my new Marc Jacobs gown with this wooden blue hospital shoe?”

We see you Aretha!!! Dropping that weight and dropping designer names and rockin spike heels…SMH.
