Denzel Washington Tries to Strangles Aretha Franklin – Yes, it Actually Happened


*OK, now that we have your attention … no, we’re NOT talking about the legendary actor Denzel Washington or the legendary singer, Aretha Franklin.

But we are definitely referring to a 20-year-old man named Denzel Washington and a 52-year-old woman named Aretha Franklin.

This Denzel Washington- who lives in Manhattan (NYC) – took a plea deal Wednesday for strangling his mom, whose name is, yep, you guessed it, Aretha Franklin.

The incident went down inside the mother’s apartment in a building on West 93rd Street, according to the Manhattan criminal complaint, reports the NY Post.

“I am informed by Aretha Franklin,” the complaint says, “that she observed the defendant place his hands around her neck and apply pressure, thereby causing redness, bruising and substantial pain to her neck.”

The 20-year-old Denzel admitted to harassment as a violation and was sentenced to a conditional discharge and an anger management program.

Denzel from Manhattan also has another open case for trespassing at his mother’s building.

At this point we can only wonder what THE Denzel Washington (61) and THE Aretha Franklin (74) think about this story. 🙂

In 2014, Denzel Washington helped Aretha Franklin celebrate her 72nd birthday
