Aretha Franklin has broken two ribs after a fall at her home in Detroit this past Sunday. The Queen of Soul has had to postpone some free concerts that were scheduled in New York next week, according to a statement from her office.
The 68 year-old suffered abdominal pain and has been advised by doctors to undergo further medical tests.
“I was very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot-long hot dog at Coney Island,” she said in a statement. “Hopefully, I will get it before the end of August.” [ SOURCE: DETROIT NEWS ]
Franklin said she hopes to reschedule the New York shows for late August.
