Aretha Franklin and Willie Wilkerson no longer plan to wed, calling off their engagement mere months after announcing it. She apparently decided everything was moving a bit too quickly.
Aretha said in a statement to fans:

“Regretfully, Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast. 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.”
So no romantic outdoor ceremony, no lavish reception on a private yacht, no special Stevie Wonder performance. Now that the wedding is off, we’re left to wonder if Aretha plans to ever get married again. She sure knows how badly those can end.
