Poor, poor Aretha Franklin. She’s facing what many parents fear…their child severely hurt.
Franklin’s son, Eddie Franklin (52), was attacked and severely beaten by two men and one woman at a gas station in Detroit on Monday night (9/20).
Eddie underwent emergency surgery today (9/21).
Aretha confirmed the attack to Detroit News, a local newspaper. Unfortunately there aren’t much details except a brief description of the attackers. All three attackers were African American, the woman appeared 19 years of age, and one of the men had dreadlocks.
Eddie was taken to the hospital by an unidentified person at the station, who also filed a police report, according to authorities.
Aretha had Eddie when she was 16.
