image for Aretha Franklin bishop sorry after 'groping' Ariana Grande

The bishop who led Aretha Franklin's funeral has apologised to Ariana Grande after being accused of groping 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.

Some people said that the focus being on Ariana, rather than the bishop, was misogynistic.

"When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell," he said to her.

"I personally and sincerely apologise to Ariana and to her fans and to the whole Hispanic community," the bishop said.

Ariana was performing at the funeral of Aretha Franklin alongside icons like Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan.

Newsbeat has contacted representatives of Ariana Grande for comment. »
