Chaka Khan confirmed RadarOnline.com’s exclusive report of being in rehab with Lindsay Lohan in a statement on Wednesday morning saying she prays for the actress’ “well-being.”
“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,” Chaka wrote on her website, admitting she sought treatment for an addiction to prescription medication.
“The battle of addiction is a serious and long process, which is why I chose to address my use of prescriptionmedications—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.”
As Radar exclusively reported, Chaka was already seeking treatment at the Cliffside Malibu rehab center when Lindsay, 27, arrived.
“Chaka was really cool about everything at Cliffside, but Lindsay just pushed all of her buttons to the point where she was aggravated and tired of Lindsay’s sh*t,” a former patientwho was in rehab with the two told Radar in an exclusive interview.
