2 auxillary verbs ?

Post by Lone » Thu Jun 28, 2012 4:24 am

Dear Alan,

The following sentence is copied from a dictionary:

She’s really has gone completely over-the-top with this wedding.

It seems to me that it is grammatically incorrect, because there are 2 auxillary verbs here (the first one is represented by apostrophe s and the second is 'has').

Could you please confirm whether the sentence is correct or not?
