Chaka Khan Issues Statement Following Panned Performance

Published: Monday 19th Mar 2018 by Sam

Chaka Khan made headlines for all the wrong reasons over the weekend.

Indeed, as reported, the legendary singer performed at Jazz In The Gardens and earned a less than favorable response from those in attendance. Even hitmaker Rico Love took to social media to express concern for the star, who he branded “drunk as hell.”

Clearly aware of the furore, the 64-year-old has responded.

Details below…

Chaka’s reps issued the following statement, which was received moments ago by That Grape Juice:

“Grammy Award winner Chaka Khan has been supporting her scheduled show dates as she has been battling the flu for a number of weeks despite the doctor’s orders to cancel these shows and rest.    Unfortunately Chaka not wanting to disappoint her fans has performed, while not totally 100%, and the media has been turning these difficult performances  into something else.  Chaka  values her fans and supporters and would never do anything to jeopardize their  support and love.

Under doctor’s orders Chaka will be resting for the remainder of the week until her next performance engagement in Macon, GA, Saturday, March 24th.”

Whatever’s at play here, we wish Chaka a speedy recovery.

    I don’t remember looking drunk when I had the flu……people just knew of the bat I was sick.
    So the drunk comment confuses me……..
    What is the REAL truth?

    Get better Chaka……

    PSA: Don’t mix drugs with alcohol….no relation

    Chaka, hang it up!!! You could not have this “flu” for 3 years now. Your performance for Wendy Williams birthday some years back was a disgrace. She forgot words and slurred. Then her performance at the Essence Music Festival was horrific! I am not buying it! She seriously have to hang it up for good.
    Or better yet, get some coaching advise from Diana Ross, who at age 70 can still get me out of my chair.
    Ms Ross can run circles around Miss Khan. Please, stop, stop the embarrassment!!!!

      Ok old queen nobody is forcing you to buy Chaska tickets. If you attending this festival you would know that Chama was not the only legend performing. Abita Baker performed there too.

        She needs an intervention before she ends up totally off like Whitney became

    Chaka Khan is into health food store herbs, so she should feel better in a couple of days and be able to perform as the legend she’s been throughout her career.

    Ever so often people get sick and celebrities are no exception.
