Devon Franklin Says His Wife is Free to Dress as She Pleases… Duh
Meagan Good and hubby DeVon Franklin were participants in the Diversity in Media, Television and Film Panel, which took place over the weekend at the Essence Music Festival. During a Q&A session with fans and the media, the couple once again found themselves fielding questions about Meagan’s sometimes provocative attire.
Franklin, who is a Sony exec and Seventh Day Adventist minister, quickly came to his wife’s defense, telling the crowd his wife is her own person and is free to do and dress as she pleases. “I don’t own her and she does not own me. We are together and I respect whatever she chooses to put on,” Franklin explained. “When I married her, I knew she was her own person. I said, ‘I accept you for who you are and whatever you choose to wear, that is your right.’”
Meagan and Franklin first came under attack from the religious community when Good wore a skin tight blue dress to the 2013 BET Awards, where she was presenting the statuette for Best Gospel Artist. When asked about the dress, Franklin said “I saw her before she walked out, and I said ‘Amen, praise the Lord [laughing].’”
After the panel wrapped, Meagan quickly hit up her Instagram page, posting an image of the two, with the caption: “That moment when your reminded how thankful & humbled you are by the reality that your man doesn’t desire to change you. He didn’t fall for who you could be one day. But is absolutely, madly in love with who you are right now. @DeVonFranklin thanks for making everyday of my life so much brighter.”
