"Waiting to Exhale" Celebration: Aretha Franklin Asked Babyface for Dating Advice! [VIDEO]

On tonight's "Waiting to Exhale" soundtrack celebration on IG Live, Babyface shared a funny story about Aretha Franklin asking him for dating advice 5 years ago.

After doing a show at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA in 2015, Aretha Franklin met Babyface backstage and told him that she'd been dating a young man. Franklin, who was in her 70's at the time was not sure if she should date the young man and wanted to get the producer's opinion. After hearing the details about Franklin's love interest, Babyface advised her that he didn't sound trustworthy.

Aretha Franklin told Babyface she would let him know what happened. About a month later, Franklin called Babyface and told him he was right about her love interest. According to Babyface, she said, 'You was right, Face. He wasn't the one. He wasn't the one. He wasn't nothin' but a ---'

Well, ain't that something!  🤣

Franklin passed away on August 16, 2018.

May she R.I.P.  💖
