A rumor has been leaking out lately that singer Chaka Khan had been in rehab for addiction to prescription medication. And she is at the same facility as Lindsay Lohan. The rumor has turned out to be accurate and the prescribed medication is painkillers for an old knee injury.
According to Chaka Khan’s website on August 07, 2013, “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.”
