Aretha Franklin Goes OFF on Dionne Warwick Over Comments Made at Whitney Houston's Funeral!😲
Kinda late Ree Ree, Doncha’ think?
Aretha Franklin is The 75-year-old entertainer sent a “lengthy fax” to the Associated Press on Monday (April 24) where she slammed Dionne for making up the story that she is Whitney Houston‘s godmother.
“She blatantly lied on me… fully well knowing what she was doing,” Aretha said. “At this point it isn’t about an apology, it’s about libel.”
While attending Whitney‘s funeral, Dionne – who is a cousin of the late singer – told those in attendance that Aretha was there and introduced her, but then realized she wasn’t present.
“Ree’s not here, but she is here,” Dionne said back in 2012. “She loves Whitney as if she were born to her. She is her godmother.”
Aretha could not attend Whitney‘s funeral due to swollen feet and a scheduled performance that she said she was contractually obligated to attend.
“We’ve never been friends and I don’t think that Dionne has ever liked me,” Aretha said.
WOW! But seriously why is it so bad to be called Whitney's Godmother? Dionne was in a stressful situation, and was trying to correct an incorrect statement she had just made at a highly emotional funeral. I understand that Aretha might not want anyone speaking for her but considering the magnitude of the occasion maybe these two diva should just let it drop. Life is too short and God has blessed them both amply, they need to let it go.
