Several people asked me about this story and here’s your final answer. Aretha don’t play when it comes to lies that will damage her brand. So according to reports, she is now suing the satire news site that last week published the malicious story that she had gotten into a knock down drag out fight with Patti in Atlanta.
Aretha told the Detroit news:
“The stories were not presented as satire or humor. It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way — defamation of character.”
Perhaps Aretha has an uphill battle with this one because the website, News Nerd, has a disclaimer describing the page as
purely satirical and for entertainment purposes only.
