As we previously told you, Aretha Franklin is reportedly receiving hospice care at home, and she had several famous friends stop by to visit her yesterday. According to the Queen of Soul’s publicist Stevie Wonder, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Franklin’s ex-husband Glynn Turman all visited her Detroit home.
Meanwhile, although the singer’s condition has been described as “gravely ill,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight, Aretha, “has been having lucid moments and she is at peace with her journey,” adding, “She is where she is supposed to be, at home and surrounded by only love.” The insider adds that Aretha is a very “private person” and though she’s been sick for a while “the last thing she wanted was to reveal this difficult time in her life with her fans.”
