Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, who led the ceremony, had an awkward interaction with the singer after her performance of (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, the 1967 song written by Carole King, that became one of Franklin’s signature hits. 
Photos showed Ellis with his arm around Grande, who looked uncomfortable. His hand lay above her waist, with his fingers pressing against the right side of her chest. In an interview with Associated Press after the event, Ellis apologised, saying it would “never be my intention to touch any woman’s breast”. He said:

“I don’t know, I guess I put my arm around her. Maybe I crossed the border, maybe I was too friendly or familiar but again, I apologise.”
“I hug all the female artists and the male artists. Everybody that was up, I shook their hands and hugged them. That’s what we are all about in the church. We are all about love.
“The last thing I want to do is to be a distraction to this day. This is all about Aretha Franklin.”

Goodie: why would he do it on purpose in public? . Mistakes like this happen

Some women actually make themselves to be touched intentionally by their body gestures & approach. Its only when it becomes so obvious that the public cry out foul & it makes headlines. But if he's apologized about it of which I think he didn't do with intent, then its OK. Mode of dressing by some ladies too shouldn't be under emphasized Endy

John: Good evening bro. Yeah, mode of dressing of a lady can also trigger embarrassing mistakes like this. If a lady dress in sexy manner, it might make a man think otherwise. Like today, I went to withdraw money at the bank , I saw up to 4 young girls dressed half naked with their belly & navel showing. I was just looking at them in surprise. They also came to withdraw money
