Earlier this month, The News Nerd published a satirical story about Aretha Franklin getting into a physical altercation with Patti LaBelle. Now, Franklin has decided to address the story, which many people actually thought was true.
“I’ve never heard anything crazier — regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20, in Atlanta,” Aretha said in a statement. “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.”
She continued, “Patti and I are cool and we always have been. I enjoyed her at the White House. Classic Patti.”
Last last month, Franklin was captured pulling her arm away from Patti, who was trying to greet Aretha at the “Women of Soul” concert at The White House.
