Rachel Dolezal Once Filed A Lawsuit Claiming She Faced Discriminated For Being White … Wait, What?!

The more we learn about Rachel Dolezal's past, the more questions arise.

Here's the problem: Just a few years ago, Rachel stated she was white… in court documents.

Filed under: Mary J. Blige

Uh, oh!

It appears that Mary J. Blige's announcement that she will be attending Howard University may have been a bit presumptuous!

Apparently Howard University hasn't heard anything about the R&B singer enrolling in this historically black university. A rep for the school says:

"We encourage Ms. Blige to continue her studies and welcome her consideration of Howard University in the future. We are happy to work with Ms. Blige on completing the formal process for admission."

Still sounds promising to us! You get that higher education, Mary J.!

Mary J. Blige has revealed that she intends to go to college - and has enrolled in the Howard University class of 2014!

She says:

"The city of New York gave me my high school diploma … and now Howard University has accepted me."

Blige dropped out of high school her junior year, but later received her GED.

Amazing! She should be so proud of herself!
