PayUp! Aretha files suit of $10 M's for false Patti LaBelle Story

source:RollingStone

On April 11th, the News Nerd published a story that claimed LaBelle had been charged with assault and battery after accosting Franklin, apparently angered over how Franklin "threw epic shade" at her. The supposed attack took place at the Women of Soul concert in Atlanta in March. "Franklin was quickly struck with a Mayweather style right and left and stumbled backwards, landing awkwardly," the website wrote. "Bystanders subdued Labelle and escorted her outside of the venue. Franklin suffered only minor injuries."

Franklin then issued a statement a few days later denying the attack. "I've never heard anything crazier – regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20, in Atlanta," she wrote, via Billboard. "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."

Good for you Aretha!!
