Aretha Franklin revealed on Jan. 3 that she and her fiancée William 'Willie' Wilkerson would wed this summer. Yesterday, Jan. 23, the Queen of Soul announced the wedding and engagement are off.
"Regretfully, to our friends and supporters: Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly," said Franklin in a statement. "There will be no wedding at this time."
She also said, "We will not comment on it any further because of the very personal and sensitive nature of it. We appreciate all of the many well wishes from friends."
Any theories as to what went wrong with 'Retha and Will?
