Looks like there won’t be a “royal” wedding any time soon. Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, has called off her wedding to William ‘Willie’ Wilkerson.
In a posting on her Facebook page, the couple writes, “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. 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. Aretha & Will.”
The legendary singer announced on Jan. 1 that she and Wilkerson were engaged.
“We’re looking at June or July for our date and no I’m not pregnant, LOL!” Franklin said at the time. But apparently plans have changed.
If the two ever do wed, it will be Franklin’s third marriage.
