DETROIT (AP) — Queen of Soul [lastfm]Aretha Franklin[/lastfm] is speaking out on the beating her adult son took from three men at a Detroit gas station.

Franklin said in a statement Thursday through a public relations firm that Eddie Franklin underwent surgery after arriving at a hospital emergency room early Tuesday morning. She said his jaw was wired shut.

Franklin also said her son’s girlfriend gave her the wrong location of Monday night’s attack.

Police said Eddie Franklin, who is in his 50s, was driven to the hospital by a female acquaintance. He gave officers a written statement Wednesday.

The attack originally was reported by Gwendolyn Quinn, who at the time was Franklin’s spokeswoman. Franklin calls Quinn’s GQ Media and Public Relations Inc. her “former publicist” in Thursday’s statement.
