5 Celebs Who Bounced Back After Drug Addiction
Chaka Khan has been open about her lengthy battle with drugs and alcohol that she finally won in recent years. In 2012 the songstress revealed a conversation with the late Etta James about the dangers of heroin injections. “‘Whatever you do, if you wanna be in this business…’ showing me the tracks on her arm,… ‘do not do this,’ says Khan of James’ advice. “I said, ‘Oh my God! Don’t worry, I won’t.’ And I didn’t. I snorted heroin for a good 10 years and I did cocaine, but I never injected.” Khan is now said to be eight years clean and recently revealed her startling 60-pound weight loss.
