This 20-year-old’s got a world-famous name — and no R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
A Manhattan man named Denzel Washington took a plea deal Wednesday for strangling his mom, whose name is — wait for it — Aretha Franklin.
The altercation happened inside the mom’s apartment in a doorman building on West 93rd Street, according to the Manhattan criminal complaint.
The “American Gangster” star’s namesake copped a plea to harassment as a violation and was sentenced to a conditional discharge and an anger management program.
In another odd coincidence, Denzel the actor, 61, who is currently starring in a remake of the 1960 gunslinger classic “The Magnificent Seven,” is a close pal of the Queen of Soul.
He even helped ring in her 72nd birthday at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in 2014.
Denzel from Manhattan, meanwhile, has another open case for trespassing at his mom’s building.
The victim, 52, does not appear to be related to her soul-legend namesake, who’s won more than a dozen Grammy Awards.
