Aretha Franklin to Marry William “Willie” Wilkerson
The queen of soul has found her king. Aretha Franklin announced these days that she will be marrying her longtime friend William “Willie” Wilkerson this summer.
Franklin told the Associated Press that the wedding particulars aren’t finalized however, but the iconic singer stated that the wedding will possibly be held on a private yacht off the coast of Miami Beach next summer.
Franklin, 69, stated:
“We’re seeking at June or July for our date and no, I’m not pregnant, LOL!”
Franklin, who lost much more than 80 pounds last year right after a health scare, stated that she was excited to pick out a wedding dress. A rep for Franklin stated:
“Ms. Franklin is contemplating Donna Karan, Valentino and the queen of wedding dresses, Vera Wang, to style her gown.”
According to Folks, the Grammy winning singer has already been married twice. The queen of soul was married to Ted White for eight years and actor Glynn Turman for six years.
