Mary J Blige endured years of abuse! She said she was raped at 5 by a family friend and it made her think very little of herself as she grew older into adulthood.
“I remember feeling, literally right before it happened, I just could not believe that this person was going to do this to me,” Blige said. “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.”
