Queen of Funk Chaka Khan has entered rehab along with her sister Yvonne Stevens. The Grammy-decorated recording artist revealed that she’s been battling prescription drug issues and will be receiving treatment in a bid to take care of her health.
“Unfortunately, I will miss concert appearances over the summer,” she said in a statement provided to the Associated Press. “However, it’s vital that I put my health and well-being first. I know that I am disappointing some of my fans, but I also know they would want me to recover and be well and healthy.”
“The tragic death of Prince has had us both rethinking and reevaluating our lives and priorities,” explained the singer. “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.”
Khan has previously battled substance abuse issues to gain sobriety and we wish both her and her sister the best of luck in their recovery.
