Trivia by wikipedia

Khan was born Yvette Marie Stevens in 1953 in Chicago, Illinois.

Khan has been married three times and has two children. Khan married her first husband, Hassan Khan, in 1970. They divorced in 1971. The birth of Khan’s daughter Milini was the result of a relationship between Khan and a man named Rahsaan Morris.

In 1976, Khan married Richard Holland. Their marriage produced a son, Damien, who was born three years later. In 1980, the couple divorced. In 2001, Khan married a third time to Doug Rasheed, which ended in divorce three years later. Khan is also the grandmother of two.

In 2006 Khan’s son Damien Holland was accused of murder after 17-year-old Christopher Bailey was shot to death. Khan testified on her son’s behalf defending her son’s innocence. Holland claimed the shooting was an accident and was found not guilty.

Khan has struggled with drug abuse, alcoholism and weight over the years. She had addictions to heroin and cocaine, which she kicked in the early nineties. After an on-again and off-again bouts with alcoholism, in 2005, Khan declared herself sober. Though she sang at both the 2000 Democratic and Republican conventions, Khan says that she is more of a “Democratic-minded person”.

In 1990, Khan emigrated to the United Kingdom where she had a steady relationship. She splits her time between Los Angeles, Germany and London but has been living mainly in London since 2006. In a 2008 interview Khan said that she, unlike other artists, feels very optimistic about the current changes in the recording industry, including music downloading. “I’m glad things are shifting and artists – not labels – are having more control over their art.

My previous big record company (Warner Music) has vaults of my recordings that haven’t seen the light of day that people need to hear. This includes Robert Palmer’s original recording of “Addicted to Love” – which they took my vocals off of! We are working on getting it (and other tracks) all back now.”
