Bishop Charles Ellis has apologized in an interview with the Associated Press regarding his interaction with Ariana Grande at Aretha Franklin's funeral. He says, "It would never be my intention to touch any woman's breast." He continued saying, "Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar but again, I apologize."
Fans of the singer were quick to notice that Ellis was holding Ariana high above her waist. In this video, Ariana does not look happy.
