ARETHA FRANKLIN GRAVELY ILL FROM CANCER

ARETHA FRANKLIN GRAVELY ILL FROM CANCER

Aretha Franklin is gravely ill and friends and family are gathering for their final goodbye … TMZ has confirmed.

A source very close to Aretha and a longtime dear friend tells TMZ he was told a week ago, “Prepare yourself, she’s dying.” The source adds Aretha was down to 86 pounds and her health was failing. The source says 2 weeks ago everyone in Aretha’s circle was told “she could go any time.”

Another source — someone who has been close to Aretha for decades — tells TMZ she has been battling cancer. 

Franklin, who is 76, has been in poor health over the last few years. She has performed, but only on a limited basis … most recently last November at an Elton John AIDS Foundation event.

The news that her health is failing first came from Roger Friedman over at Showbiz411, and WDIV TV in Detroit says Aretha’s family confirmed she is gravely ill.

Beyoncé Speaks On Body Positivity With VOGUE

Beyoncé knows you think she’s pregnant, and she’s got a message for you. As previously reported King Bey is covering VOGUE for an iconic issue with a detailed first-person interview about having an emergency C-section with Sir and Rumi, toxic relationships, and representation.

In one part in particular, however, she talked about accepting her body after giving birth to the twins. In that quote, she mentions having a “mommy pouch” and a “FUPA” that she’s in no rush to get rid of, which would explain the constant speculation that she’s pregnant.

The BeyHive is now STANNING over Beyonce’s body positive message and her use of the word FUPA altogether. In case you didn’t know, FUPA stands for “fat upper p**y area.”
