Aretha Franklin wonâ€™t be getting fitted for that Vera Wang wedding gown after all. CourtneyLuv.com reported that Aretha called off her engagement to her longtime boyfriend. A statement released Monday by her representative said Franklinâ€™s wedding to Willie Wilkerson wasnâ€™t going to happen. I am a little confused. Aretha weren’t you all friends before dating? Just to think I was thinking about being the photographer at her wedding! LOL. Franklin said Wilkerson was the one for her and that the relationship was particularly strong because they had been friends first. â€œWeâ€™re very compatible, and he supports me and I support him a lot, and he has given me specialized attention that I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve received from anyone else,â€ she said. Come on ReRe get it together. He gave you R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
