Chaka Khan and Sister Check into Rehab


Soul singer Chaka Khan and her sister Taka Boom check into rehab to combat their addiction to pain killers...

News spread that Chaka Khan was in rehab after she canceled a scheduled performance at the California State Fair.

Chaka later released a statement on her website confirming the news,
Representatives for Chaka Khan announced today that ten-time GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Chaka Khan has entered an addiction rehabilitation and aftercare program which will cause her to postpone all dates scheduled for the month of July. 
Chaka has struggled with a dependence on prescription pain medications and has voluntarily entered the program to get healthy and stay that way. As part of the ongoing outpatient treatment the doctors have urged her to resume recording mid-July and commence all performances beginning August 1st and onward.
Chaka tells The Associated Press she and sister Taka,
"agreed we would take this journey together and support each other through the recovery."
"The tragic death of Prince has had us both rethinking and reevaluating our lives and priorities. We knew it was time to take action to save our lives. My sister and I would like to thank everyone for their support, love and prayers."

She was a friend of Whitney's, too. If Whitney's death didn't inspire her enough to get it together, hopefully Prince's will. I don't know about her sister, but Chaka has been down that road before. Better results this time, I hope.

P.S. I wish Prince was still here. I would love to hear what he would have to say about the current police state in this country. I will sorely miss that about him.

Praying for you and your sister Ms. Khan. Addiction is nothing nice. The journey is long and tedious. I too have an addiction but mine is to food. It may not be drugs but it could kill you just the same. God bless.

Pain pills or COKE Chaka??????? Whatever! Chaka is a Coke head...been a coke head and will always be a coke head. She admitted this on live TV with Larry King. She and a bunch of other stars were all hooked on Coke. She is using pills as the excuse. GIRLBYE! Do better - when you're lying...

Lmao @ 12:21PM true. I think its coke too. After watching the Miki Howard movie and it showing Chaka was the one that got Miki hooked on Coke and other drugs I wouldn't be surprised if everybody that's been around Chaka got hooked on drugs because of her

My opinion said...

9:01 - I miss him too. I bet he would have had a lot to say about today's political climate. Say whatever you want about him, at least Lord Jamar is till keeping it real. I don't always agree with him, but he's like that uncle in the family that always keeps it real

Chaka been battling drug addiction longer than I been alive. Hopefully they pull through.

Don't Judge be Thankful you escape for now said...

I don't understand why people want to put down other people yet don't look have themselves and the foolishness that is in their lives. Chaka may have a problem but we all have problems. Some people are addicted to abusive relationships, some food, some is addictied to low self esteem and pity parties and some are addicted to there religion. Don't criicize people just be thankful they are allowing the public to see their mistakes to help others not go down the same road.

Seems all the industry people state "pain killers" as the reason for addiction these days. Anywho..best wishes to Chaka and Taka. I hope it goes well.
