Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has canceled her plans for a summer wedding.
There goes the bride!
The diva announced today that she and Willie Wilkerson will not be getting hitched as planned.
"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," Aretha said in a statement. "There will be no wedding at this time."
It’s not clear whether the wedding is off indefinitely, or whether she and her fiancé are simply pressing pause. It’s unknown whether she and Willie are still together. One thing is clear, though: Aretha wants a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T for her privacy right now.
"We will not comment on it any further because of the very personal and sensitive nature of it," she said. "We appreciate all of the many well wishes from friends."
