    Fox 2 News in Detroit reports that soul diva Aretha Franklin is battling cancer. The news was leaked by a close relative of Franklin, 68. Another relative reportedly told the station that the family is "very concerned." Franklin underwent a surgery last week, the cause of which was not revealed to the public. A prayer vigil was held and her rep released a statement saying that the singer was doing well.

    Another source reported to Fox 2 News that Franklin is suffering from pancreatic cancer. A representative for Franklin has yet to officially comment on the situation.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to 'Retha. Please R-E-S-P-E-C-T her privacy through these trying times.
