When I first read the headline I didn’t believe it either, but Newsnerd.com is claiming that a fight between legendary soul singers Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin did in fact happen.
Apparently it all started at a March 20th “Women Of Soul” concert at the White House where Aretha Franklin threw some shade at Patti Labelle. Well, it didn’t end there; at a more recent Atlanta concert the two were in attendance and Labelle tried to talk to Franklin to solve the issue but Franklin wasn’t having it.
“Onlookers say Labelle quickly removed her wig and earrings as she approached Franklin. Aretha, knowing that the removal of earrings is a tell-tale sign that a fight is about to ensue, attempted to prepare herself for the confrontation. Franklin was quickly struck with a Mayweather style right and left and stumbled backwards, landing awkwardly.”
If you are laughing, don’t feel bad, I did too!
Atlanta police arrested Labelle. She was let out on $10,000 bail and is charged with assault and battery.
