‘Queen of Soul’ Aretha Franklin Said to be Gravely Ill

Legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin is said to be gravely ill. The “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” singer has been sick for quite some time.

“She has been ill for a long time,” a longtime friend tells PEOPLE. “She did not want people to know and she didn’t make it public.”

For years rumors have engulfed the 76-year-old and her health. In 2011, rumors swirled that she was allegedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Showbiz 411 reporter Roger Friedman was first to report the singer is “gravely ill,” sharing that Franklin’s family are “asking for prayers and privacy.”

No word on what illness plagues the sing. However, she is currently said to be surrounded by family and friends.
