Don’t mess with the Queen. That’s what a satirical website is learning after a story they published went viral and people believed it was true. Website Thenewsnerd.com published a story that said thatAretha Franklin and Patti Labelle came to blows at a concert in Atlanta on March 20th.

In the story the website says Labelle supposedly attacked Franklin, “with a Mayweather style right and left” causing Franklin to stumble and land awkwardly.

When the story went around the web as truth, Franklin, through her publicist, quickly issued a denial.

I’ve never heard anything crazier—regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20, in Atlanta,” she says. “On March 20, I was in New York City readying for my birthday patty (Sorry. LOL. Laughing at my typo error). I meant PARTY, which we all had one fabulous time. Patti and I are cool and we always have been. I enjoyed her at the White House. Classic Patti.”
