I think Aretha may have set a new record today: shortest engagement ever. After announcing she would bemarrying longtime friend William Willie Wilkerson on Jan. 3, a rep for the 69-year-old “Natural Woman” says the couple has decided to hold off on wedding plans.
The statement says:
“Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there 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.”
Aww shoot. I wonder if Willie was skimping out on the r-e-s-p-e-c-t? At least the two saw things clearly before moving ahead with their summer 2012 plans and even walking down the aisle. Still something seems funny.
What do you think about Aretha calling off her engagement?
