Kirk Franklin, gospel superstar, apologizes for expletive-laden tirade at son




“Many of you know I have an older son named Kerrion Franklin, in May he will be 33,” the 51-year-old musician said. “For many years we have had a toxic relationship with him as a family.”

Old Franklin can be heard using insults and insulting his son before he appears to hang up.

Kirk Franklin said in his apology video that he and his family, including his son, have sought advice “to try to correct this private family matter.”

“Recently, my son and I had an argument that he chose to record,” Franklin said. “I felt very despised in that conversation and I lost my temper and said words that were not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry for all of you. I sincerely apologize.”

According to Franklin, during this conversation he got his family therapist on the phone to try to help with the situation, although he says his son did not play this part of the conversation.

“I’m not perfect,” Franklin said. “I am human and I will make mistakes and try to do it right. Please keep me and your family in your prayers.”
