Legendary ‘Through The Fire’ hitmaker Chaka Khan set the net ablaze today when rumors swirled that a series of clashes between she and troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan prompted the R&B diva to make a grand exit.
The report gained footing across outlets so fast, Khan decided to cool the story by offering her side of the story in an open letter lifted to her website earlier today. Detailing a stint in rehab few knew she was even committed to, the ‘I’m Every Woman’ wailer shared news on her addiction, time with Lindsay, and more in this must read:
Via Chaka Khan’s official website:
“To choose to do what is necessary to better one’s self is commendable. I applaud Lindsay Lohan for doing the work. She is a lovely young lady and I pray for her well-being. The battle of addiction is a serious and long process, which is why I chose to address my use of prescription medications—which came about as a result of the knee surgery I had a few years ago. When and if necessary, I will seek alternative methods and traditional treatment to stay ahead of any potential problem.
So many are not here today, and have lost this battle with addiction. Because these medications are legal, their abuse is often unknown—until it’s too late. If not handled they are a silent killer.”
