Queen of Funk Chaka Khan was a close friend of the late Whitney Houston, and is also family to the other Houstons and the Browns. In her recent interview with ‘The Mirror UK’, the singer sort of stunned everyone when she said she wasn’t shocked about what happened to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s. “I can’t say I was shocked. But I was definitely hurt, disappointed,” Khan confessed.
She’s been keeping in touch with the Hollywood scion’s family since she was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home. “I’ve been in conversation with the family. 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,” Chaka said.
And, how she wishes Whitney was here to take care of her ailing daughter.”Whitney would be devastated. 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,” the iconic crooner stated.
