Maybe now we finally know why Aretha Franklin has been insisting on having Halle Berry portray her in her upcoming biopic.

According to a press release from her publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, Franklin believes she and the Oscar-winning actress are related.

She says according to a family member, her grandmother and Halle’s grandmother were first cousins.

Franklin is currently investigating the authenticity of the family member’s claim. Franklin has stated in the past that Halle reminds her of the younger version of herself.

Do you think they can be related?
