Aretha Franklin Sets the Record Straight On Her Health

Aretha Franklin is speaking out regarding her recent health scare.

Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson — a friend of the Queen of Soul for nearly 20 years – got the scoop from Aretha, herself, as the seasoned singer revealed why she chose to address recent health rumors.

"Well, there was just so many wild things out there and just so many things being said that weren’t true," Aretha told Shaun in a phone interview on Thursday. "I just felt I needed to address it a little."
