What does Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Timbaland and Tyler Perry all have in common besides music, films, wealth and the respect of their peers? The answer is steroids. These five talented and successful artists have all been confirmed as participants in an Albany probe as recent buyers of body enhancement supplements. Hard to believe, right? Personally, I can easily believe the allegations against 50 Cent and Timbaland. But it's the accusations against Mary that has me at a lost for words. Wouldn't it have been easier and safer for her to just go under the knife (again) instead of risking her life to look....what the hell is she trying to look like?! As far as Wyclef and Tyler are concerned, I can't even call it so I'll digress for now...

The following details are sooooooooo not the business.

Mary J. Blige, 37
The Bronx native's first album -- What's the 411? -- debuted in 1992. Since then Blige has produced seven multiplatinum albums and won six Grammy Awards. In December 2006 Blige won nine Billboard Music Awards for her album The Breakthrough. Between August 2005 and January 2007 Blige allegedly received multiple shipments from an Orlando pharmacy of Jentropin, a human growth hormone, and Oxandrolone, an anabolic steroid, in orders sent to her at the Beverly Hills Hotel, MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and Clay Gym in New York City. At least one of the orders was mailed under the name "Marlo Stanfield," which is the character name of a drug kingpin on the Baltimore-based HBO crime drama The Wire.

Blige's representative did not respond to a request for comment.

Curtis James Jackson III, 50 Cent, 32
Jackson started dealing drugs at the age of 12 in Queens but an arrest on weapons and drug charges and a sentence in a shock incarceration program led him to abandon the street life and gravitate to a career in rap music. The stage name 50 Cent, Curtis has said, underscores his effort to "change" his life. Jackson is alleged to have received shipments of steroids at his mansion in Farmington, Conn. in July 2006 an order was mailed to his residence under the name "Michael Jordan" and also at a residence on Oakmont Drive in Los Angeles. Steroids in his name also were mailed to the office of a Long Island chiropractor.

Jackson's representative did not respond to a request for comment.

Timothy Z. Mosley, Timbaland, 35 Mosley was born in Norfolk, Va., and began his musical career in the mid-1990s emerging as a top rap artist. Mosley has become a major record producer and two years ago founded his own label, Mosley's Musical Group. The label's debut, Nelly Furtado's Promiscuous featuring Timbaland, reached the top of the song charts. Mosley allegedly received shipments of human growth hormone and anabolic steroids between October 2005 and September 2006 at his Miami residence and at the office of a Long Island chiropractor.

Mosley could not be reached for comment.


Tyler Perry, 38
An award-winning playwright, actor, director and producer. In 2005 Perry wrote, produced and starred in the box office hit, Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Last fall, his television comedy series House of Payne debuted on TBS. Perry's biography on his Web site touts his rags-to-riches story from being homeless on the streets of New Orleans to now owning a mansion outside Atlanta. Prescriptions for anabolic steroids and growth hormone were shipped in Perry's name to his business and studio headquarters on Krog Street in Atlanta in 2005 and 2006.

Perry could not be reached for comment.

Wyclef Jean, 35
Co-founder of The Fugees. The Haitian-born rapper and Grammy Award-winning musician is a producer and self-described social activist. Jean splits time between New York City and Haiti, where he has spearheaded humanitarian efforts with stars such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Prescriptions in Jean's name for human growth hormone and Oxandrolone, an anabolic steroid, were shipped to the office of a Long Island chiropractor in August 2005.

Jean's publicist declined to comment.

Jesus Christ!
