Oh, man, it's not even Valentine's Day and already love has taken quite a beating in 2012. Today comes the upsetting news that Aretha Franklin has called off her engagement to Willie Wilkerson. But… but… but, it's only been three weeks since they announced their plan to marry! What could go wrong in that time?
Apparently it just didn't take long for them to realize they'd made a mistake, and now they're publicly backing off of their marriage plans. Franklin said in a statement, "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." Bummer! It sure would have been fun to see what kind of wedding Aretha threw. Oh well, we can only assume that at the age of 69, and with two marriages under her belt, she knows what's best. [Us]
