It’s been confirmed the legendary 68-year-old singer is fighting for her life after being diagnosed with potentially terminal pancreatic cancer

This is devastating news. Aretha Franklin has reportedly been given a year to live, according to The National Enquirer. The tabloid claims the 68-year-old singer has sadly been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer.

A source also confirmed to the Detroit press the “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” song bird is indeed struggling with cancer, although the insider failed to specify what kind.

Aretha underwent a secret procedure Dec. 2, the day after her hometown of Detroit held a candle light vigil in her honor. The singer released a statement saying, “All prayers are good.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Aretha and her family during this time.
