Fame opens doors for artists. Not to mention, it affords a lifestyle full of fortune and notoriety. However, the biggest con to “making it big” seems a lack of security and peace-of-mind. Being in the spotlight 24 hours a day and 7 days a week puts a huge target on an artist’s back. It makes them accessible to the public and worse, easy to scrutinize.
R&B singer Mary J Blige certainly faced scrutiny after being accused of child molestation. In a long string of outdated #MeToo scandals, she became the latest victim. Furthermore, Death Row artist and R&B singer Danny Boy accused the singer of child abuse. Now Mary J Blige might be facing time in prison for her supposed crime.
Mary J. Blige Struggled With Abuse
Considered the “Queen of HipHop Soul” in the industry, Mary J. Blige has solidified her place in the industry as an elite. Throughout her entire career, she’s worked hard for her success. While Mary J. Blige has sung some of the greatest songs in HipHop, she’s also suffered immense personal trauma.
Moreover, the R&B singer has discussed her struggles with drug, alcohol addiction and mental health. Sadly, she’s also been the a victim of sexual abuse and child molestation. In an effort to stop abuse, the R&B singer launched relief programs to help other victims of sexual abuse. Unfortunately, the singer has endured horrible circumstances in her life. Despite all of the hardships she’s faced, Mary J. Blige has come out strong on the other side.
Danny Boy Accuses Mary J Blige Of Child Molestation
Given all the challenges Mary J. Blige has overcome, she’s overdue for a break. Things were looking up for the singer after the announcement of her induction into The Apollo Walk of Fame. However, after news hit of her possible connection to a child molestation case, it didn’t seem likely.
Recently, the “Queen of HipHop Soul” found herself caught up in yet another #MeToo scandal after a fellow R&B singer accused her of child molestation. Furthermore, MTO News reported that Death Row artist Danny Boy allegedly claimed that Mary J. Blige sexually abused him at 15 years old. According to Danny Boy, “a then 24-year-old Blige had requested that he come to her hotel room. Once there, Blige had enticed him into having sex with her.” For several months, the two carried on an illegal relationship between an adult and a minor.
Now sources believe Mary J. Blige might face serious jail time for her alleged sexual abuse of a minor. Though, no charges have been brought against the R&B singer yet. As a victim of child molestation and sexual harassment herself, it’s hard to believe she’d subject another person to that abuse.
