Oh, Aretha ... what a bummer!
The 69-year-old Queen of Soul has called off her summer wedding to William "Willie" Wilkerson.
The couple released the following statement:
- "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. There will be no wedding at this time."
Franklin and Wilkerson announced their engagement on January 3.
We wish them well.
