Chaka Khan on the hand has been married twice and is also a mother of a son, Damien Holland.

Malini’s birth was the result of a relationship between Chaka Khan and Rahsaan Morris.  Rahsaan Morris’s ex-partner Khan married her second husband, Richard Holland, in 1976. 

The marriage reportedly caused a rift between Khan and several members of Rufus, in particular, Andre Fischer. Holland wanted her to tone down her sexy stage image, but she refused. Following their split in 1979, Khan spent time in the studio with Ike Turner who she said was a “real inspiration and a catalyst emotionally and in other ways as well” during that difficult time. 

Holland filed for divorce in 1980, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Khan dated a Chicago-area schoolteacher in the mid-1980s in the middle of her solo stardom. Following their separation, Khan moved to Europe, first settling in London, and later buying a residence in Germany. She lived in Germany for a while “in a little village in the Rhine Valley” and also in Mannheim.

Khan had an on-and-off struggle with alcoholism until 2005, declaring herself sober. In 2006, her son Damien Holland was accused of murder after 17-year-old Christopher Bailey was shot dead.

Khan testified on her son’s behalf. Holland claimed the shooting was an accident. He was acquitted in the criminal trial and found liable in the civil suit. Though she sang at both the 2000 Democratic and Republican conventions, Khan says that she is more of a “Democratic-minded person”.
