Did you hear the story about Patti LaBelle being arrested and charged with assault for trying to deck Aretha Franklin?
On 11 April 2014, the News Nerd web site published an article positing that shortly after that event, Patti Labelle retaliated for the slight by attacking Aretha Franklin at an Atlanta concert, for which the former was arrested and criminally charged:
Legendary singer Patti Labelle arrested and charged with assault and battery after attacking Aretha Franklin.
The singers were in Atlanta for an R&B/Soul concert on March 20th when they ran into each other backstage. Labelle was still fuming from a recent run-in with Franklin at the White House for the “Women of Soul” concert. While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her. The two exchanged obscenities after the event and parted ways.
Aretha Franklin responded today by saying:
“I’ve never heard anything crazier—regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20, in Atlanta. On March 20, I was in New York City readying for my birthday patty (Sorry. LOL. Laughing at my typo error). I meant PARTY, which we all had one fabulous time. Patti and I are cool and we always have been. I enjoyed her at the White House. Classic Patti.”
