Bishop apologizes for holding Ariana inappropriately

The bishop who led Aretha Franklin’s funeral has apologized to Ariana Grande after being accused of inappropriately holding her on stage.

Images show Bishop Charles H Ellis III holding Ariana high above her waist, with his fingers squeezed around the side of the singer’s chest.

He said “It would never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast,”Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar.” But again, I apologise.”

The preacher said he hugged all artists, male or female, during the ceremony commemorating the Queen of Soul.
