Blige opened up about her struggles with drinking, sharing her realization that she was incapable of consuming adult beverages on a strictly social basis. “The test comes when you have to decide whether you’re drinking to be social or drinking to cover up something again,” she relates. “To cover up , to cover up , shame, abandonment”¦ Once I realized, “˜There you go again,’ I had to stop.”

Blige is the only artist with Grammy Award wins in the categories of R&B, Rap, Gospel, and Pop.

She continues: “Whitney ’s death really affected me. Her death is another reason I stopped. I really do think I’m done. I looked at how that woman could not perform anymore.” Numerous drugs were found in ’s body at the time of her demise, with cocaine being one of the contributing factors. Among other sundries, and champagne were discovered in the Beverly Hilton in which she expired.

Blige made headlines last week when Bank Of America brought a against the singer in New York’s Supreme Court alleging that she has defaulted on a $500,000 loan. This marks the second such legal action against her in three months. Money management is notoriously problematic for alcoholics.

Blige has sold 50 million albums worldwide, and owes $511,324 in principal and interest on the Bank Of America loan.
