The 42-year-old Mary J. Blige is crediting Whitney Houston’s death as one of the reasons why she quit drinking alcohol.
The self-proclaimed born again Christian says Houston’s death was a wake up call for her and it made her realize that she needed to seek “spiritual help” for her binge drinking.
Blige told Los Angeles Confidential Magazine, “Whitney Houston’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.”
Blige struggled with alcohol addiction for over a decade.
