BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.—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 (http://detne.ws/1S8otNx ) 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.”

Franklin says her attorney is working on the dispute.
