Nivea reveals how cocaine nearly made her give up her kids!

R&B singer, Nivea has spoken out about her struggles with drugs and alcohol, which really began years after she released her sophomore album back in 2005.

The singer and mother of four revealed,

“I’m a be honest. I did everything late. I didn’t smoke weed until 2010 after I stopped breastfeeding my youngest son. The pill thing I can’t do. I drink though. I had to stop that. Brown liquor — I’m a whiskey girl — has sugar in it and it makes you freakin’ fatter. I had to stop that. But yeah, I like to drink.”

She went on to reveal how she got into using cocaine, saying,

“My experience with cocaine, that wasn’t something I felt public with where people want to party. It didn’t do none of that for me. It was more of a mental thing. I had a different reaction than most people. I wanted to be alone. It was a personal drug. I wanted to write, play Sudoku, it put me in my head.”

 However, things began to become a problem for Nivea and cocaine,

“I come from an addicted family, both of my parents were on crack. My mom got off and my dad struggled over the years, and recently, over the past year, went to rehab, but that was the last 30 years of my life. The struggle is real. I was real caught up with the cocaine situation. It was pretty bad. I pulled myself up out of it though.

“In the midst though, I knew that was something I was allowing to happen, which was dangerous and reckless, but I knew I was going to come out of it somehow. Even though sometimes it got tough and I was like, ‘Damn.’ I talked to Dream about it. I was about to give the kids up, which I think helped me. Because without them, I would have died…I can’t live without all of them. I need them for air.”

Damn, girl, sounds like you had a close call there…
