    Aretha Franklin is being sued over unpaid homeowner fees at a condominium in suburban Detroit.

    Hills of Lone Pine Association says it's owed more than $11,500. The Detroit News reports that the association has filed a lawsuit to try to foreclose on the Queen of Soul's property in the gated community in Bloomfield Hills.

    The lawsuit names Franklin and two companies that hold mortgages on the $700,000 condo.

    Franklin tells the newspaper that she owns the condo but doesn't live there. She believes she's been "overcharged for years" and has paid only what's "credible and legitimate."
