After the sudden death of Prince, Chaka Khan has decided to check herself into intensive rehabilitation. The vocalist claims that her addiction to fentanyl (the specific opioid painkiller that caused the death of Prince) is the reason for checking in.
"Unfortunately, I will miss concert appearances over the summer," Chaka claimed in a release 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 re-evaluating our lives and priorities. 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."
