Diagnosis: It's No Accident, Her Talent Is On Point And On Purpose
Chaka Khan along with Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, El Debarge & Jill Scott performed at this years Essence Festival in New Orleans this weekend. After El Debarge performed, Chaka took the stage and in the middle of her set, talked about her past drug addictions.
We are not sure if maybe the message was for El Debarge who recently fell off the wagon and was back in rehab, but Chaka talked about it. It was about the song "Troubled Little Angel" and this is what Chaka said.
"This next song is a song I wrote but I don't remember writing it because I was high," "That was then, this is now, I'm seven years clean."
Chaka also talked in the past to Mary J. Blige about drug addictions and attributes Chaka to getting clean.
We are proud of Chaka and hope she stays on the road to recovery.-Dr.FB

Jill told Essence Magazine, fiancee Lil John, was there for only a few days after the baby was born. She doesn't seem to sad about it. Co-parenting works best if you can't make the relationship work. Best of luck to ya Jill
ESSENCE.COM: Well, at least your hubby-to-be was there to support. How has he been adjusting to Jett?
SCOTT: Yes, he was there and for a couple of days afterwards while I stayed in hospital, but John and I are no longer together. When you have a baby you’re dealing with a lot of emotions and I don’t know how much of it had to do with us breaking up, but it happens. We definitely love our son and we are co-parenting and working on being friends. It is what it is. I have a lot of support, so I want for nothing as far as that’s concerned. I know some might criticize me or the fact that my son is being raised in a single-parent home, but I wasn’t raised in a two-parent home and I had a good relationship with my dad. I have hopes for him and I’m sure his father will do his part as well.
