Aretha Franklin´s son attacked in Detroit

Aretha Franklin’s middle-aged son has been hospitalized. Eddie Franklin, 52, was forced to undergo emergency surgery on Tuesday after being severely beaten by two men and one woman at a gas station in Detroit on Monday night.

The Queen of Soul’s spokeswoman confirmed the attack to local newspaper the Detroit News.

Other details were scarce. The female suspect appeared to be about 19 years old, and one of the men had dreadlocks. All three were African American.

An unidentified person at the station took Franklin to an area hospital and then filed a police report, according to authorities. Word of Franklin’s condition was not immediately available.

Aretha — who is one of the most decorated singers of all time, having won 20 Grammy Awards — had Eddie when she was 16.
