Patti LaBelle did not punch Aretha Franklin, and the latter soul diva wants the website that wrote a fake story “for entertainment purposes” to pay up for spreading the rumor.

Franklin has filed a $10 million lawsuit against the humor site the News Nerd, according to The Detroit News.

“The stories were not presented as satire or humor,” she said through her publicist. “It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way – defamation of character.”
