According to the report, the talk show host revealed that she used alcohol as a way to deal with the tragic loss of her older brother, Lancelot Jr., who was killed in a crash in 1992 on the motorcycle that she had given him as a gift.
Queen Latifah opened up about numbing herself to the pain. "I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side -- hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, You're either going to love yourself or hate yourself. And I decided to love myself," Latifah said. "That changed a lot of things.”
The former “Living Single” star also revealed that she had to overcome her fear of getting back on a motorcycle after her brother’s death. "Riding was one of the things Lance and I did together a lot," she explained. "I had to get back on. It was like a [healing] potion."
