Mary J. Blige has always been candid about her hardships, and her interview for VH1's "Behind the Music," which premiered Sunday (July 24), was no exception. The 40-year-old singer spoke about being molested at the young age of 5 yrs. old and battling alcoholism through out the earlier days of her career.
"When I was five years old I was molested," Mary J. Blige said. "I remember feeling, literally, right before it happened, I just could not believe that this person was going to do this to me. That thing followed me all my life.The shame of thinking my molestation was my fault. It led me to believe I wasn't worth anything."
