ARETHA FRANKLIN REPORTEDLY ‘GRAVELY ILL’ AS FAMILY AND FRIENDS GATHER BY HER SIDE
Monday, Aug 13, 2018

Sources close to Aretha Franklin have reported on the singer’s condition, saying she is “gravely ill” and surrounded by loved ones in Detroit. Tom Joyner, a close friend of Franklin’s, shared that she has been in hospice for a week, The Detroit News reports.

The 76-year-old-singer announced her retirement in February 2017, followed by a performance in June where she asked fans to “keep me in your prayers.” She canceled a few tour performances over the past few months per her doctor’s request. It’s been rumored that Aretha has battled pancreatic cancer since 2010, a claim she denied in a 2011 interview with Access Hollywood.

We are sending prayers to Aretha Franklin.
