Denzel Washington was arrested for allegedly strangling his mother, Aretha Franklin.
Okay, it’s not THE Denzel Washington and Aretha Franklin. But he obviously has no R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
In Manhattan, 20-year-old Denzel took a plea deal Wednesday for strangling his mom Aretha. Apparently, they got into an argument back in January after she accused Denzel of taking money from her coat, so he allegedly choked and threatened her. Denzel was order to stay way from Aretha, but recently was arrested again for going to his mom’s home and fighting with her.
According to the New York Post, Denzel took a plea deal for the lesser charge of harassment, and was ordered to take anger management classes.
Meanwhile, the famous Denzel and Aretha are doing just fine–it ends up they are friends in real life.
