Aretha Franklin Calls Off Engagement

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Legendary singer Aretha Franklin has ended her engagement.

Franklin released a statement Monday calling off her wedding to Willie Wilkerson.

“Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly. There will be no wedding at this time,” Franklin said. “We will not comment on it any further because of the very personal and sensitive nature of it. We appreciate all of the many well wishes from friends.”

It is unclear if the couple plans to stay together.

Franklin, 69, announced her engagement on Jan. 3.
