Aretha Franklin Fractures Toe

Legendary music legend Aretha Franklin will be sporting a hospital boot on her left foot for a few weeks, after a shoe mishap in Dallas last Thursday. According to her people, Aretha was in her hotel packing after making some major paper (she performed at the home of an oil baron) when she stepped on a Jimmy Choo shoe, causing the heel to "wrap" around her toe. "She went to sleep and in the morning it was still hurting and throbbing," her spokeswoman told the AP. While driving to play a gig in Greenwich, Conn. "it started really hurting so they made a pit stop." X-rays taken at an Indianapolis hospital revealed the 69-year-old had a fractured toe. "She wears a designer shoe on the other foot," the staffer said. "She's standing and dancing. She's wearing gowns and you can't really see her feet until she sits at the piano." Last December, Aretha underwent surgery for a mysterious illness. She has refused to comment on the surgery and some allege she was seeking treatment for pancreatic cancer. A claim she has denied.
