Aretha Franklin is launching her own
food brand that she says will rival Pattie LaBelle’s sweet potato pies.

‘The Queen of Soul’ said in an interview with
Detroit’s Local News 4 Today that her pies and food products will rival those “other” sweet potato pies.

When asked if she’s tried one of LaBelle’s pies Franklin said, “No, I haven’t, but Ms. Patti’s gonna have to move that pie to the side!”

Franklin says she’s already met with a food group based in Phoenix to start developing her line of cooked goods. Aside from pies, Franklin says she plans to market and sell chili, gumbo and baked chicken.

The two iconic singers were rumored to have a beef after video surfaced of Franklin appearing to snub Patti LaBelle at the White House. However, the Respect singer later said that she and Patti “are cool.”

Patti Labelle Arrested After Fist Fight with Aretha Franklin

April 11, 2014



Atlanta — Legendary singer Patti Labelle arrested and charged with assault and battery after attacking Aretha Franklin.

The singers were in Atlanta for an R&B/Soul concert on March 20th when they ran into each other backstage. Labelle was still fuming from a recent run-in with Franklin at the White House for the “Women of Soul” concert. While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her.

While at the concert in Atlanta, Labelle attempted to approach Franklin to resolve their outstanding issues, but Franklin once again turned up her nose. Onlookers say Labelle quickly removed her wig and earrings as she approached Franklin. Aretha, knowing that the removal of earrings is a tell-tale sign that a fight is about to ensue, attempted to prepare herself for the confrontation. Franklin was quickly struck with a Mayweather style right and left and stumbled backwards, landing awkwardly. Bystanders subdued Labelle and escorted her outside of the venue. Franklin suffered only minor injuries.

Labelle was quickly apprehended by the Atlanta Police Department and charged with assault and battery. She was released on a $10,000 bail and will appear in court on April 16th.
