    I hope this news is not true.

    Sad if true. I hope it's a case of Whose Zoomin' Who.

    The Queen always had physical problems, hope she overcomes it again.

    Love how people go public to ask for privacy. What do they think we'll do? Drive cross-country to Detroit and knock on the door?

    That's just a polite way of saying that they're getting ahead of someone making an incomplete or preemptive report, and that's all they're planning to disclose.

    76, easily outlived her parents and sisters. Not exactly the poster girl for healthy living. She's had a great innings. Thanks, Aretha.

    The story got yanked, so Roger's source(s) may be faulty. Neither of Detroit's mainstream newspapers have picked up the story, so color me skeptical - at least for now. Then again, no mainstream sources are running stories refuting that she's gravely ill, so maybe they're working to verify Roger's "scoop."
     
  13. I'm believing this may be another hoax. This seems to be catching very little attention from several outlets compared to last year when this hoax surfaced. Whether true or false, I hope all is well with the Queen. She's certainly done her work and it will live on forever.

    I don’t see any other news outlets picking it up either.

    If it was true, TMZ would have already confirmed it.

    InStepWithTheStars It's a miracle, let it alter you

    TMZ would have reported it three hours before anyone could confirm whether she truly was ill.

    If any of this is true, very sad. Hoping for the best.
     
  20. Let's hope it stays a hoax. I've had some discernment about Aretha's health for a while, especially in the last five or so years since the last health scare.

    I checked Detroit TV, radio and newspapers websites and nothing on it

    Fake news needs to leave the Queen Of Soul alone.
