Aretha Franklin Reportedly Battling Cancer

    The rumor mill is buzzing and a recent blind item revealed that Aretha Franklin’s cancer has returned.

    After a two year long remission, cancer has come back with a vengeance for this older permanent A+ list singer.

    During an August 1st concert, the singer reportedly looked stiff and uncomfortable. She also told the crowd 2017 would be her last year performing. She has canceled several concerts, citing “doctor’s orders.”

    At another concert in Detroit back in June, she asked the crowd to “keep me in your prayers” as she left the stage.

    The Queen of Soul was diagnosed with an illness back in 2010, and it was rumored to be pancreatic cancer. The singer denied the allegations.

    1. Unfortunately some of her photos show her wasting so it probably is cancer. Sad and hopefully she won’t suffer.

      • It’s cancer my loved one had terminal cancer I know that look, she doesn’t have long, months, maybe 8 weeks or so, 12 weeks…

      • Have some respect man. That’s the Queen of Soul and she’s dying of terminal cancer. Surely you can’t be so foolish that you don’t realize how cancer saps the life out of people?

      • While I can appreciate some of you all’s compassion, Aretha gets none from me. Why? She smoked like a chimney for years, so what do you expect? She’s also had a nasty attitude for years, known for being petty. Maybe she should have projected more positive energy & that may have served her inside & out. You get back what you put out in the Universe.

        • I didn’t know any of that… You do have point however. What we put into the universe is what we get back, and all of out karmic debts will catch up to us sooner or later. I suppose hers finally caught up with her.

          • Karma my ass. There was nothing that needed to catch up with her. Take your rude ass message off of here. She is fighting for her life. God is able. Prayers of comfort be strong Queen of Soul. Be strong.

            • Thank you Brenda! People can be so cruel. God Bless the Queen of Soul. None of us has lived a “perfect” life!!

          • But now is not the time for that discussion. Otherwise you are both guilty of what you accuse her of. It’s about being positive, otherwise… karma’s gon git ya.

        • Wow; what a ramble of words of non-compassion! Remember that your own record is being written on the books which will be opened by God on the day of your judgement. The Word of God explicitly tells us that the same rule of measure we use to measure others by will be the same rule of measure applied to us on that day of judgment! Since it seems that you are not humble enough to consider this, I guess it’s okay for what you will face at that time, when the books are opened. This will be on the list! …..By the way, did you actually know and work with her? You speak as though you two were close aquaintances! Just wait until your time comes; and it is coming; this is on the book! I would get back on here and repent and ask for forgiveness from God also! Your words were mean, hateful and cruel! ……. “You have a real problem”….

        • The Bible also says judge not that you might be judge. Be very careful of your judgment toward others!

      • Please don’t disrespect this lady. You never know what road you will have to walk. There is a have in our path and we can’t go around it. That means all of us. Be careful what you say.

      • What a stupid comment how would you like someone to call you mother daughter wife sister a crack headed.

    2. Damn. I know everyone has to go, but I really hate to see her go. Im not even the biggest fan, its that she is walking black history. I have a great deal of respect for this woman, no pun intended.

    3. It’s obvious that she’s seriously ill the way she’s wasting away. Hopefully she won’t suffer too much. No one deserves this.

    4. Aretha had a child by her dad who was a child molester her dad was fucking women, men, and kids in his church rev franklin got a young girl pregnant around the same time Aretha got pregnant when she was a teen

    5. I love Aretha. She had much to overcome in her life. Never relish in another trials. Behavior is often a coping mechanism. She had some compulsive tendencies, such as refusing to fly in airplanes- which is her right. She has had numerous health challenges in the pass. Praying for her recovery. Remember, we have all sinned and fallen short. Therefore DO NOT JUDGE, as we are fans and do not know her REAL story.

    6. I am very sorry about her illness. May God soon embrace her in His Heavenly love! Dedicate it all to the Lord, Aretha. He is the only one, who understands. Go in the love of those who truly love you. A Fan.

    7. Please everyone with negative comments.. We all have to go one day because everyone that is born has an appointment with death however it may happen.
      I feel bad for Aretha for many reasons but her parents split when Aretha was only six and then her mother died when she was just 10 years old which nearly destroyed Aretha… Aretha gave birth to her first two children while she was still a child herself and later got married to her first husband Ted White who abused her emotionally and physically for years. She turned to smoking and alcohol for a number of years as a way to cope with all the turmoil in her life though she did stop drinking in the 1970`s..
      Her second marriage ended in divorce ..She watched her father die a slow death and then had to watch all her brothers and sisters die and she continued to smoke heavily until the early 1990`s when she finally quit… Then she turned to food to escape and her weight eventually got way out of control.. Other than her children and maybe a very few others, I think Aretha feels she can`t trust anyone so it`s like she stays basically in a shell and won`t let anyone in, even those with good intentions. Now it appears her health is failing and declining fast and if I`m not mistaken , all of her brothers and sisters died of cancer . I hope she fully turns to God.

      • You started off right. By saying stop with the negative comments. You finish with her business being publish all over this article. Which is rude and negative comments as well. Why can’t you people just say we are praying for her and asking God to comfort her at this time. She is the Queen of Soul. Period!

    8. Some of y’all is the most disrespectful, petty, stupid, most ignorant people I have seen texting anything. MY GOD. HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL. SMH

    9. Prayers for you Aretha. I remember you when we lived around the corner from each other, you on Virginia Blvd and I on Linwood. I met you when I sang with Victoria Hawkins and her mother who was blind. God is a good god and he is going to take care of you. I know you were fond of my brother, Dr. Arthur Johnson in Detroit.

    10. I love her! Why did they post the worst picture they could find?! This is what I HATE about the media!

    11. Put aside her personnel life and understand the real reason behind this great woman a great soul icon that will not be replaced . May she not suffer and be blessed with love and comfort

    12. Show her love some love everyone. She gave us what she was supposed to give us her gift of song. Whatever she was personally was hers. Lets prayer for our sister, and one of our icons!

    13. So sorry you are going thru this battle. Cancer sucks and i wouldnt wish it on anybody. Just want to say thank you for all the memories and beautiful music. Your talent has gotten me and many people thru a lot of good and bad times. You are one of the strongest soldiers I know. Fight the good fight and stay strong. Sending you prayers, love and Respect. Love you Ree-Ree.

    14. That is far from the worst picture of her I’ve seen recently. It’s not flattering, but I’ve seen much worse. She has lived a hell on earth life because of her father, and I would not be surprised if she was welcoming God’s arms.
