While attending Aretha Franklin’s funeral, Gladys Knight shared some of her fondest memories with the late singer, and also revealed that she and Aretha “shared the same disease.” As we now know, Aretha died of pancreatic cancer.
Glady’s rep has since denied that she is also battling pancreatic cancer in a statement that read:
“[Gladys is] healthy. Someone must have misinterpreted […] Maybe she meant she feels her pain. But she does not have cancer,”
