Atlanta — Legendary singer Patti Labelle arrested and charged with assault and battery after attacking Aretha Franklin.

The singers were in Atlanta for an R&B/Soul concert on March 20th when they ran into each other backstage. Labelle was still fuming from a recent run-in with Franklin at the White House for the “Women of Soul” concert. While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her.

While at the concert in Atlanta, Labelle attempted to approach Franklin to resolve their outstanding issues, but Franklin once again turned up her nose. Onlookers say Labelle quickly removed her wig and earrings as she approached Franklin. Aretha, knowing that the removal of earrings is a tell-tale sign that a fight is about to ensue, attempted to prepare herself for the confrontation. Franklin was quickly struck with a Mayweather style right and left and stumbled backwards, landing awkwardly. Bystanders subdued Labelle and escorted her outside of the venue. Franklin suffered only minor injuries.

Labelle was quickly apprehended by the Atlanta Police Department and charged with assault and battery. She was released on a $10,000 bail and will appear in court on April 16th.

    Does anyone bother to read the whole page? This is a humor site, not actual news. Don’t get into analysis, and judgment, of something that never happened.

      In other news: “Taylor Swift Medical Condition Makes Her Afraid of Black Men”

      That’s about 5 inches below the Labelle/Franklin story.

    It is sad that they came to blows…..BUT Ms Franklin has been know to throw shade to any & everyone!!! On the other hand Ms LaBelle is more down to earth & will stop & take timeout for people. Sometimes people allow other people to take them to a level that should not go to! NOBODY is perfect,& has NEVER been tryed & or setoff!!!
