Aretha Franklin's Wedding Back On


Back in 2012 Aretha Franklin famously called off her wedding to long-time partner Willie Wilkerson just two weeks after announcing their engagement [click here if you missed that].

The wedding is back on...

From The National Enquirer
As The Enquirer has reported the Queen of Soul’s four adult sons feared her long-time partner, Willie Wilkerson, had targeted her $60 million fortune, and 71-year-old Aretha put their plans to marry on hold.
“But now the kids have finally accepted Willie,” said a source.
Although Aretha’s rep denied there have been any problems between her children and Willie, sources say Aretha canceled her wedding plans after her sons begged her to have Willie, 66, sign a prenup.
But now all the problems with her kids have apparently been smoothed out.

Leave Slick Willie alone. Snitch I think it should be accepted instead of excepted. (fake ass grammer police in here.) lol

I'm still chuckling at the person that wrote she was eating from a "cauldron of black eyed peas" in the last Aretha post. That visual is hilarious.

SMH @ Snitch.

LAZY, I TELLS YA. Just because ONE post of Aretha VS Patti goes copper (not gold, but copper), you post another post pertaining to Aretha's irrelevent ass in hopes of repeating it. You really don't get it and probably never will.

No1curr about this, damn fool. You have absolutely NO vision and no fortitude to do REAL blogging.

Snitch, you need to give Aretha a tag on the blog if you're going to keep writing about her. Personally, I don't care. Her gray bow hat at President Obama's inagauration was in point, though.

Love Aretha's soulful voice..i really do BUT...if there was every a candidate for gastric bypass well...and @ 11:12 you know you wrong for that and I am too cause I'm laughin so damm hard right now that I can't feel my face!..

Aretha did have gastric bypass surgery. That sh*t is not a miracle worker. You still have to watch what you eat and exercise. Look at how Carnie Wilson gained her weight back.

In my opinion the last thing she needs is a new husband.

Lol!!!! Yesterday's Comedy was Classic!!
Can you imagine Charlie Murphy telling that story?

I've never liked her gospel wailing disguised as singing.... I wonder would she have been as big a star if her father wasn't the Famous "shady" Reverend CL Franklin.
Gladys - B+
Patti - B
Chaka - B
Aretha - C

Why is she going to marry this guy NOW? Just string him along for whatever time she has left. She knows she s allergic to marriage. Sounds like this guy is after money.

If she s worth $60 million, why does she look so bad? She needs to go somewhere & detox her body, & put the pig feet down.

Wasn t she screwing him while he was married? This is a recipe for disaster!

I think one possible reason why Aretha could have a history of throwing Patti shade is because she may have flirted or slept with Dennis Edwards. Everyone knowsvthat he was the true love of her life but he wouldn't wife her---lucky for him.

As for the poster in the earlier thread that said Aretha is an Aries and if we don't like you, you will know it. Thst true however, I think Aretha's behavior was uncalled for and just plain tacky!

All she had to do was politely shake her hand and keep it moving.

Aretha needs to realize that she is now up in age and has had multiple medical issues as of late. She also needs to remember that just because you can sang gospel and step foot in a church doesn't mean you will meet the Lord when your time comes!

Aretha you are getting the milk for free why buy the cow. No Aretha you are not the cow I am talking about mooo. Don't marry that man. He wants you to die so he can get the money. He plans on contesting the will and pre-nump when you pass away. Aretha please start eating better and take care of yourself. I don't agree with everyone getting plastic surgery but if you are cleared please do it not for beauty but for health reasons. You were a beautiful woman when you were younger and you have accomplished your goals in life. You concurred obstacles during your era. You won. Don't start loosing now. I thank you for the path you bulldozed through for today's generation. Great Job. I appreciate you. My shade at the beginning of the post was necessary because it appears you are reverting to teenage years when you don't need to. He is just a man with a plan.

Catfish Wilkerson ain't thinking about marriage. He's comfortable with funky attitude and the friends benefit.

Some of y'all are disrespectful and rude trying to sound witty but it's come off as pure ignorance! It's clear you don't know what Aretha Franklin did to advance not only females in the industry, but BLACK artists in general. When she stood in for Pavarotti, she silenced the entire music elite! Let's see your fave do that! Not to mention she can play the piano like NOBODY's business. She is soul personified. Sam knew it. Otis knew it. Marvin knew it. James knew it. It's just sad some of you soulless zombies don't too...

@9:09 Well said. Atleast it sounds like you care and aren't just taking cheap shots at a lady in her 70s. Why niggas in here acting like Aretha hasn't lived 7 while decades?! You dummies better just pray to God that u can get to 69 and then we'll discuss what you might look like.

Aretha does not have no 60 miillion, that chick is broke as hell, got in trouble years ago with taxes, house caught on fire, lost record contract,last cd was sold exclusive in walmart nobody bought, if she has this money, get a stylist, new dentures, liposuction,an attitude adjustment, lay off the cigarettes and push that damn table away, get those swollen arms sucked away and put out a cd of decent muisc, none of that damn crap that she has put out, her last great cd was a rose is still a rose that lauryn hill wrote for her and hurts like hell from waiting to exhale , that magic was gone. That man is her caregiver, not her husband to be
