Finally Chaka Khan opened up. This undisputed Queen of Funk stated in an interview, she gave recently, about reliving the pain of the sudden death of Whitney Houston when she heard the news of her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown after the lady was discovered facedown as well as unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31.
Khan, 62, stated, “I can’t say I was shocked.” Chaka was one of the close friends of Bobby’s mother, Whitney. She also told The Mirror UK, “But I was definitely hurt, disappointed.”
Khan has been with Bobbi Kristina’s family members when this young lady remains in coma. She also said to the newspaper that every member of the family is in devastating condition. She told, “I’ve been in conversation with the family.” She continued, “Everyone’s devastated, everyone. I love Bobbi Kristina, I love Whitney, I love Bobby Brown. I love Cissy – I love them all. But we just have to wait for what happens next. All I want to do is be there for them. I just need to pray.”
Khan has allowed Houston to cover her smashing single “I’m Every Woman” for the soundtrack of Bodyguard in 1992. She said that she felt pain of the late diva. She told, “Whitney would be devastated.” Khan continued, “I wish she was here… You really don’t know what this is like for a mother until it happens to you. I think I’m pretty close to feeling what she would have felt and what she’s feeling right now, wherever she is.”
On Mar. 25, Cissy Houston, maternal grandmother of Bobbi Kristina Brown has opened up about the condition of Bobbi. “She’s the same.” She also said, “We’ve moved her to a place for rehabilitation. And you know, still not a great deal of hope. [We’re] still praying.”
We wish the best for Bobbi.
