*Aretha Franklin didn’t like the rumor started by The News Nerd that her and Patti Labelle got into a fist fight.

The satire website played off of the gif below where it looks like Franklin brushed off Labelle and refused to hug her. But Franklin said her and Labelle are good friends, and there’s no feud.

aretha's supposed snub of patti

She’s suing the satire website for $10 million!

“The stories were not presented as satire or humor,” Franklin said. “It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way—defamation of character.”

Yeah, that’s right. Don’t mess with the Queen of Soul.


*In more positive news, Swizz Beatz is going to Harvard Business School!

The music producer will be enrolled in the school’s Owner/President Management Program.

He’s excited about the news! “This might be one of the happiest days of my life. From the BX to Harvard #hardwork #dedication #levels #discipline #BX #makehistory #owner #Boss #humbled #formykids,” he posted on Instagram.
