Mary J. Blige Says Whitney’s Death Helped Her Beat Alcohol

Mary J. Blige turned to God to help battle her drinking problem in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death one year ago.

The self-identified born-again Christian admits the 2012 tragedy hit her hard and made her realize it was time to seek spiritual help in an effort to address her problem with binge drinking.

She tells Los Angeles Confidential magazine, “I didn’t want to go to rehab. I believe that anything man himself can do for me, God can do in a greater way. I decided to pray and to seek God on my own. I just stayed in the Word. And it worked.”

Blige admits she struggled with alcohol addiction after trying to cut back and just drink socially.
