Aretha Franklin’s son was busted for drinking and driving in the weeks following the death of the soul icon.
Kecalf Cunningham, Aretha’s youngest son, is currently serving time in jail for the offense which happened on October 27, 2018.
Aretha died two months prior, aged 76, on August 16 after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer.

The Blast reports that Kecalf, 48, had a court appearance in December and was given the maximum sentence of 93 days in jail after pleading guilty to operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.
Aretha had Kecalf with her road manager, Ken Cunningham in 1970.
Kecalf is a Christian rapper who performed on stage with his mother several times and Aretha also acted as his business manager when he started his career.
Meanwhile, there is also an ongoing investigation by the Bloomfield Township Police Department in Michigan over some missing property from Aretha’s estate.
A criminal investigation has been launched because of some valuable property that has gone missing and came to light because Aretha’s son Edward is locked in a battle with the estate.
Edward has been trying to get a court order to force the estate to produce monthly financial documents to Franklin’s heirs.
The Respect hitmaker is survived by her four children; Kecalf Cunningham, 48, Teddy Richards, 54, Clarence Franklin, 64 and Edward Franklin, 62.
Last month it was reported that the late star owed more than $7.8 million in back taxes and related penalties at the time of her death.
Reps for the late songstress told the outlet that the millions in back taxes were linked to a series of tax audits on Franklin since 2012.
