    One could speculate that pre-nup arrangements were not to the satisfaction of both parties...who knows, and it's nomb.

    I'm glad that Aretha canceled the plans for whatever personal reasons known to her and her formerly intended. Sets a fine example for young ppl who are too eager to marry and too 'scared' to back-out before the date.

    Good on you, Aretha! Happiness to the both of you as you move-on in life.

    Franklin took out a $500,000 mortgage on the property in 1997, according to court records. All 2015 taxes are paid and up to date, county tax records show...
