Soul singer Chaka Khan recognized in a statement posted to her website Wednesday that Lindsay Lohan is suffering in her addictions, and Khan expressed support for Lohan in her efforts to overcome them.
Lohan left the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center in California on July 30, reports ABC’s 10 News.
Following a car crash last summer, Lohan was ordered by the court to enter a 90-day program. She will continue to attend meetings as part of her rehab treatment.
Khan wrote: “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.”
Lohan tweeted her appreciated to Khan: “@Chakakhan sending you love and hugs! Xo”
Khan replied in a tweet: “@lindsaylohan ‘Ain’t Nobody’ gonna tear our love apart … I love you more sweetie!”
