According to ZAlebs, Zahara only started drinking at the ripe age of 24 years old. She started drinking from a place of stress.
She said that it was the media and all the allegations that turned her to the bottle.
"I did not turn to alcohol, you guys turned me to alcohol. Let me tell you something, you don't even have a picture of me in the club with a glass [in my hand]. They always say 'sources say' so I want to ask who is that source."
She went on to say that what she does in her house should be her business.
“If I want to drink champagne I will drink it today if I want, it's not your business."
