Aretha Franklin Diagnosed with Cancer
According to Pollstar, Aretha Franklin's family confirmed that the diva has cancer that is possibly inoperable. Franklin went through surgery last week for an undisclosed illness and had canceled all appearances.
Franklin's publicist did not have comment from the singer, but the National Enquirer reported that she has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which has a very low survival rate.
The 68-year-old Franklin issued a statement last week saying her surgery was "highly successful."
Friends and family have told Fox News Franklin is doing "OK."
