Yesterday morning, a false report that #ArethaFranklin’s health was declining began circulating on the internet. Thankfully, the Queen of Soul has been compelled to decline the rumors herself in a new statement.

“I’m doing well generally, all test have come back good,” she told reporters in a statement. The singer has lost a lot of weight recently and she addressed that too!

“I’ve lost a lot of weight due to side effects of medicine, it affects your weight… Thanxxxx for your concern,” she said.

It ain’t over yet, y’all!
