Le'Andria Johnson, a gospel star and season three winner of BET’s ‘Sunday Best’ checked herself into alcohol rehab, MTO News has learned. She checked herself into treatment yesterday.
Le'Andria has been struggling for a long time with a drinking problem and she needed to check herself into rehab to try and get it under control.
Le'Andria discussed her drinking problem this past Sunday, during testimony at the new Met Philly church in Philadelphia. She told the audience, “It consumed every part of me. I didn’t realize I was drinking Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. I was drinking a lot."
She added, “It took an ankle bracelet for me to stop drinking … December 7, that was the last time I had alcohol."
Le'Andria had to wear an ankle bracelet because she was arrested in connection with her drinking.
Here's how it is being explained:
She said she went out to drink one night at a bar about eight minutes away from her home and got arrested when she tried driving home under the influence.
“I left the bar, yeah me, I was only eight minutes away from the bar to my house,” she said.
She said when she got pulled over by police that fateful night, she was pulled over for a light that was out on her car. She was given a sobriety test and was arrested.
Johnson explained that she was sentenced to probation for that arrest but went on to violate her probation, which resulted in her being locked up for 30 days.
