The legendary Chaka Khan is speaking out following her controversial performance this weekend during the 13th annual Jazz in the Gardens show. The concert reportedly ran into several issues, with fans believing the “Sweet Thing” singer was inebriated during her closing set. Producer Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher) agreed with the general consensus, tweeting that the icon appeared to be under the influence, which led to several fans walking out.

Check out footage and Twitter reactions below.

The “Tell Me Something Good” songstress has released a statement to The Jasmine Brand, where her rep claims she has been under the weather, but performed anyway against her doctor’s wishes.

“Chaka Khan has been supporting her scheduled show dates as she has been battling the flu for a number of weeks despite the doctor’s orders to cancel these shows and rest. Unfortunately, Chaka not wanting to disappoint her fans has performed, while not totally 100%, and the media has been turning these difficult performances into something else.”

“Chaka values her fans and supporters and would never do anything to jeopardize their support and love. Under doctor’s orders Chaka will be resting for the remainder of the week until her next performance engagement in Macon, GA, Saturday, March 24th.”
