A new report claims that singer Aretha Franklin is seriously ill. She is most well known for her song "Respect".

Aretha Franklin has dealt with numerous medical issues for most of the decade, including an alleged pancreatic cancer diagnosis in 2010 that she debunked in interviews about a year later.

The Daily Mail noted that Aretha Franklin announced in February 2017 that she still had plans to record new music, but was going to make that year her last as an active performer.

Her last performance as on November 2, 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY, the site reported.

Aretha has been dogged by rumours of cancer since at least 2011 when she told Jet exclusively that doctors advised her to cancel all concerts until May because of her health.

"But her legacy is larger than life".

She revealed she planned to keep recording but confirmed it would be her a year ago in concert.

Her sister Carolyn died the previous year in April 1988 from breast cancer, while eldest sister Erma passed from throat cancer in September 2002. Long live the Queen'.

They added: "She was due to have radical chemotherapy treatments, and was told by doctors she needed to lose weight if she wanted to survive".

Aretha, whose biggest hits has included Respect, I Say A Little Prayer and Natural Woman, retired at 74 with one final album release, a collaboration with Stevie Wonder in 2017. Franklin said in August of that year that she had undergone a "miraculous" recovery, but continued to drop out of shows.
