Just because you are rich and famous doesn’t mean you are necessarily happy. Take Denzel Washington, for instance; he has it all, yet he can’t quench his desire to strangle Aretha Franklin.
A Manhattan man named Denzel Washington took a plea deal for strangling his mom — whose name is Aretha Franklin.
The altercation happened inside the mom’s apartment in a building on West 93rd Street. The “American Gangster” star’s namesake copped a plea to harassment as a violation and was sentenced to a conditional discharge and an anger management program. (H/T – TXNick)
Washington was defended by Clarence Darrow, and sentenced by the Honorable Judge Joseph Dredd.
