Legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin is believed to be seriously ill, with the music icon’s family gathering at her bedside.
The 76-year-old Queen of Soul is reported to be “surrounded” by her closest friends and family, after battling extensive health problems in recent years.
The legendary singer was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and delivered her most recent performance at the Elton John AIDS Foundation party in New York last November.
In 2017, she was forced to deny a death hoax, after a viral tweet claimed that she had passed away.
Responding to the hoax later the same day, she said: “I’m doing well generally, all tests have come back good.”
