Aretha Franklin is still getting billed even afterlife, according to TMZ.
Franklin’s lawyer, Gregory Reed, says he had trouble collecting what the Queen of Soul owed him while she was alive. So now he’s hoping that her estate would cover her debt with him. He filed documents requesting the state makes a payment of $54,000 to cover charges dating back to 6 years ago.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Reed’s firm claims to have provided multiple services to Aretha Franklin, who passed on in August, including arrangements on her last Atlantic Records contract. The firm says her last payment, for about $10,000, was made in August 2012.
Reed is definitely not trying to be added to the chain of fools.
