    Chaka Khan has won a bid for temporary custody of her granddaughter. She applied for guardianship of the 10-year-old last week. She alleges that the child's mother is incapable of caring for the girl because of a "heavy involvement in drugs." Ouch. This sounds like a sticky mess.

    Khan also revealed she has "assumed on a day-to-day basis the role of the child's parent fulfilling both the child's physical and psychological needs for care and affection."

    The star's sister Tammy McCrary filed an additional document stating that Khan's son "also uses and abuses drugs and other illegal substances." A hearing is set for October, with the hopes of making this custody arrangement permanent.

    Big ups to Chaka Khan for caring so much about her granddaughter.

    What is your favorite Chaka Khan song? Mine is "Sweet Thing."
