It appears that Aretha Franklin, as she rests at her home in Detroit, is struggling. Please keep her in your prayers.
According to US Magazine, a source said on Monday that Franklin was “not doing well” and that she’s “hanging in there, but recovery is not looking likely.”
Franklin was visited by Stevie Wonder, who came to check in on her, said her longtime publicist Gwendolyn Quinn. Also visiting was her ex-husband Glynn Turman, who was married to the legendary 76-year-old singer from 1978 to 1984. In addition, Jesse Jackson paid a visit Tuesday.
Though rumors have surfaced concerning her ailment, Franklin has denied that reports that she’s suffering from pancreatic cancer. Once named the greatest singer of all time by Rolling Stone, she’s been dealing with health issues since 2010.
Franklin became a star in the late 1960s from hits such as “Respect,” “Think,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” In 1987 she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She’s sold more than 75 million records to date.
Death rumors surfaced in 2017, which Franklin adamantly denied, saying that she was “doing well generally.”
“I’ve lost a lot of weight due to side effects of medicine, it affects your weight,” she wrote in an email. “Thankxxxx for your concern.”
