Aretha Franklin passed away last August, and the entire world mourned her death as the Queen of Soul.
Someone had the audacity to steal from Aretha Franklin just before she died and now police are looking for the culprit.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, police in Michigan are conducting an investigation into the theft of Aretha’s assets before she died.
Law enforcement sources tell us the criminal probe involves someone inappropriately using her funds. We’re told a report was filed last June, but it’s unclear exactly how much money’s gone missing.
As you know … Aretha’s finances have been under the microscope following her death.
The IRS is hounding her estate, claiming she owes more than $6.3 mil in back taxes. And, she’s being dogged over legal bills.
