She's also known as the Queen of Funk and was the frontwoman for the band Rufus in the 70s. Khan has been married twice and has two children, but is no longer married. She has also gone through weight-loss which is attributed to her vegan diet. She adopted this diet in order to lose weight for combatting high blood pressure and Type-2 diabetes.
