Steroids & HGH, Not Just For Athletes … Celebrities Linked to Steroids and HGH as Well (Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Timbaland)
As the discussion goes on in baseball as to who used and did not use steroids and HGH following the Mitchell Report, it would appear that the use of performance enhancement drugs are not just limited to sports and athletes. As Roger Clemens and his former trainer grab the news headlines in a “he said, he said” case of steroids use, reports are that many celebrities have been linked to steroids. The Albany Times Union is reporting that human performance drugs are being illegally prescribed nationwide at an alarming rate under the misconception they will aid healing, enhance looks, strength and speed, or slow aging. HGH and steroids are unfortunately not just for athletes anymore.
The names of R&B music star Mary J. Blige, along with rap artists 50 Cent, Timbaland and Wyclef Jean, and award-winning author and producer Tyler Perry, have emerged in an Albany-based investigation of steroids trafficking that has already rocked the professional sports world, according to confidential sources.
Information has surfaced recently showing those stars are among tens of thousands of people who may have used or received prescribed shipments of steroids and injectable human growth hormone in recent years. Law enforcement officials have said they have no evidence in their sprawling multistate probe that customers, including Blige or other entertainers, violated any laws. Instead, they are targeting anti-aging clinics, doctors and pharmacists who prescribed the drugs.
