The fake story read made Aretha Franklin’s blood boil, the Queen of Soul released the following statement:

I’ve never heard anything crazier-regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20, in Atlanta. On March 20, I was in New York City readying for my birthday patty (Sorry. LOL. Laughing at my typo error). I meant PARTY, which we all had one fabulous time. Patti and I are cool and we always have been. I enjoyed her at the White House. Classic Patti.”

As far as filing a $10 million defamation of character lawsuit against the site, Aretha said further “The stories were not presented as satire or humor. It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way-defamation of character.”
