Franklin and White, who was also her manager, got married in 1961 when she was only 19 years old. They separated after seven years of marriage and there were reports of domestic abuse during their time together.

Earlier this week, Jennifer was spotted filming with Hailey Kilgore and Saycon Sengbloh, who play Aretha‘s sisters in the film.

Respect will be released on August 14, 2020.
