Aretha Franklin has announced that she is calling off her wedding to long time friend Willie Wilkerson.

Earlier this month the Queen of Soul announced that she would get married this summer after being together for 25 years. However, the couple is calling off the union because they think they’re moving too fast. Interesting…

Aretha’s rep released a statement which read: Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and that that were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly. There will be no wedding at this time. 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.

Sounds like cold feet to us but we hope the pair remains happy, married or not.
