Word on the curb is that legendary singer Chaka Khan (shown above during last week’s Essence Festival in New Orleans), stiffed her landlord on rental payments.
Reportedly, Chaka and her entourage rented a home last month, then packed up in the middle of the night… never to be seen again!
Singer Chaka Khan is facing legal action over missed payments on a rental home in New Jersey, according to a U.S. report.
The I Feel For You singer and her sister/manager Tammy MCCrary signed a contract to lease a mansion in Watchung for two weeks during the month of June (11).
However, landlord Maryse Selit claims the R&B star left town after the first week without paying for the full stay as she had agreed – causing the property agent to miss out on other business.
Selit tells the National Enquirer, “Chaka and her entourage stayed only one week, but I’m stuck for two. I told them I had someone who was willing to pay rent for the entire two weeks.
“I know I can sue them, but I was trying to settle this the easiest way possible. Now they’re acting like I don’t exist.” source
A representative for Khan has yet to comment. (source)
Being that Chaka is an icon, I’m gonna hope and pray this gets settled soon. Last thing we need is Chaka singing “I feel for you” in the local homeless shelter… *sigh*
