50 Cent, Timbaland, Mary J Blige, Wyclef, Tyler Perry steroid allegations

50 Cent, Timbaland, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef and Tyler Perry Named in Steroid Report

As part an ongoing investigation of steroid distributors around the country, the names of any of the tens of thousands of people discovered to have received steroids could potentially be exposed to the media. So far baseball has been hardest hit by the investigation, but wrestlers, police officers, football players and body builders have all been fingered in the last year. Today the Times Union revealed that some of hip-hop and R&B’s finest have also allegedly received steroids. They would be: 50 Cent, Timbaland, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef and film director Tyler Perry.

None of them have been targeted for breaking the law. Law enforcement is focusing on the distribution network, which has resulted in ten guilty pleas, including convictions of three physicians and the operators of anti-aging clinics in Texas, Florida, and New York.

The current focus is on a company called Signature Pharmacy based in Orlando, Florida. The husband and wife team that run the company are awaiting trial. Albany County District Attorney David Soares described them as “living the lifestyle of the Tony Montanas of the ‘70s and ‘80s because they’re drug dealers.”

The investigation is based out of Albany, NY, which is probably how one of the city’s papers, the Times Union, was able to get a close source to reveal the above named celebrities.
District Attorney Soares declined to confirm any information about them, but there is more than just a name and a finger point. Here are some of the claims made:

50 Cent

Allegedly received a package of steroids under the name of “Michael Jordan” at his mansion in Connecticut in July 2006, a spot he has on Oakmont Drive in Los Angeles, and a chiropractor’s office in Long Island, NY. The chiropractor has a number of celebrity clients.

Mary J. Blige

Between August 2005 and January 2007 Mary allegedly received shipments from an Orlando pharmacy of Jentropin, a human growth hormone. Oxandrolone, an anabolic steroid was sent to her at The Beverly Hills Hotel, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and the Clay Gym in NYC.
At least one of these packages was mailed under the nickname “Marlo Stanfield.”

Timbaland

Allegedly received human growth hormone and anabolic steroids between October 2005 and September 2006 at his home in Miami and at a chiropractor’s office in Long Island, NY.

Wyclef

In 2005 prescriptions of growth hormone and Oxandrolone were sent in his name to.. *drumroll* a chiropractor’s in Long Island, NY.

Tyler Perry


In 2005 and 2006 shipments of anabolic steroids and human growth hormone were shipped in his name to his studio headquarters on Krog Street in Atlanta.

——

Again, all that laid out, no criminal investigation of any of them has been reported.

There will be lots of fractured stories floating around the web, but the original four page story Steroids Beyond Sports” deserves a look.

As an aside, that article also mentions Sylvester Stallone, better know as Rocky or Rambo (whichever character you liked more). In May 2007, he paid a $3000 fine in an Australian court to settle drug possession charges against him. Customs found 46 vials of human growth hormone in his luggage. He admitted he takes human growth hormone to repair his damaged tendons and fragile bones.

Have you seen Sylvester Stallone lately?

Sylvester Stallone - Las Vegas episode

He was in an episode of Las Vegas and looked far from having fragile bones.

I can’t think of any reason Mary would use steroids, nor Wyclef or Tyler Perry.

We all know 50 Cent looked extra puffy in the early G-Unit days and one of his ex-associates flat out called him a steroid monster on a mixtape; these allegations also raise questions about Timbaland’s suddenly rock solid physique.

Did I say they’ve just been named, not charged? Ok.

LOL. I just read about this on cnn. They had to know they were taking steroids. Now Mary is looking great these days, so I can believe she might have been poppin’ a few pills or taking some shots or whatever. But Tyler Perry and Wyclef might wanna get their money back cause it doesn’t look like it’s working too well.

OMG Chris @ whudat.com. This is way better than ROGER CLEMENS and puts you BACK ON THE LIST. Morgana I agree with you Tyler and Wyclef need a refund. But where are the other names like: Janet Jackson, Beyonce and Dr. Dre. I cannot wait until the 13th of February. Marion Jones looked so dumb-struck when they told her 6 months.

Chris this story trips me out.  I don’t doubt 50 and Timbaland using steriods. He got all buff in no time and I didn’t see him on Celebrity fit club! Mary is kinda hard to believe, but then again I don’t doubt it.  Wyclef and Tyler Perry? I agree they need refunds!
