Chaka Khan Responds To Lindsay Lohan Feud Rumors

Chaka Khan has responded to rumors that she and Lindsay Lohan feuded during their stints in rehab.

It was reported early Wednesday that Lohan drove Khan out of Cliffside Malibu earlier than planned with her disruptive behavior. When Khan tried to help Lohan settle down, the Mean Girls star continued to be rude.

"Chaka was really cool about everything at Cliffside, but Lindsay just pushed all of her buttons to the point where she was aggravated and tired of Lindsay's sh*t," a former patient said.

"Lindsay was just doing stupid stuff for attention, so Chaka told her she was childish and told her to grow up. She never lost it, but started yelling at Lindsay," the source added. "Told her to knock it off, asking her if she came to rehab to get well, or just to piss around."

Eventually, the source said, the 60-year-old 10-time Grammy winner cut her stay in rehab short. She also allegedly told other patients that she hated 27-year-old Lohan.

The story spread fast, which prompted Chaka Khan -- real name Yvette Stevens -- to squash the rumors quickly. She issued a statement through her website, and tweeted it to media outlets.

"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," she said.

"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," she continued. When and if necessary, I will seek alternative methods and traditional treatment to stay ahead of any potential problem."

Lohan tweeted Khan after she posted the statement.
