Aretha Franklin is being petty again by accusing Dionne Warwick of libel because she said she was Whitney Houston’s godmother during the singer’s funeral five years ago. SMDH.
Franklin sent a lengthy fax to the Associated Press because she seems to have a lot of free time on her hands. Um, who the hell does this?
She has been stewing for five years because Warwick “told funeral goers that Franklin was there and introduced her, but then realized she wasn’t in attendance,” the AP reports.
“‘Ree’s not here, but she is here,” Warwick said, referring to Franklin by a nickname. “She loves Whitney as if she were born to her. She is her godmother.”
This is so libelous….WTH?
Aretha was peeved at being called Houston’s godmother (real godmother is Darlene Love) because there was “so much going on around her” such as, “drugs” and the fighting with Bobby Brown. Franklin said, “I didn’t want to add anything to that,” the AP reports.
So, it turns out, Franklin saw Warwick back stage at the Tribeca Film Festival’s premiere of Clive Davis’ documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives, and rebuffed her.
Talk about Petty Franklin…..
