Controversy

In September 2015, Le’Andria broadcast for ten minutes on Periscope while drinking Patron, a brand of tequila products.

Among other things Le’Andria said:

“We have been controlled by this religious beast all of our lives. At the end of the day, there are real people out here with real issues, living in a real-world and serving a real God.”

Le’Andria continued:

”I am not hiding anything from y’all because I am not scared of y’all. I am not scared of anybody and I am who I am. God forgives me and allows me to be forgiven 70 times 7. His grace is sufficient and is enough for me… Which means, ‘Let the party begin!’”

In March 2019, Le’Andria told Iyanla Vanzant (the host of Iyanla: Fix My Life, on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network) that she was free from alcohol after spending thirty days behind bars.

Vanzant responds:

“Spoken like a true alcoholic.”

”When I don’t give myself too much credit, I know God is taking care of the situation. It’s not me. I’m just glad to be a willing vessel.”

“It [alcohol] consumed every part of me. I didn’t realize I was drinking Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. I was drinking a lot.”

”What I learned quickly after winning Sunday’s Best is that the Awards, Awards Shows, Red Carpet’s none of that define me. I had to take some time to find myself again.”

    • LeAndria,
      Please don’t give in and don’t give up! That gotcha and you’re going to be fine. Continue to walk in faith knowing that the devil is always going to be a part of all of our lives, just don’t allow him to win. Trust and believe 🙏🏽😘💋

  2. I will be praying for Le’Andria. When we see the light once we leave the darkness. Embrace the light and do better because we know better! We are not perfect. We are all sinners saved by Grace! I do not judge, I simply say. Follow Christ and His way and He will heal, deliver and set you free!

  3. I’m praying with you Le’Andria. God has shown us all grace and mercy. Lean not to your/my own understanding, but in all things trust in God to lead me/you to glorious victory. I never exclude myself, a sinner saved by grace.

  4. She lied about her marriage, who wants to respect a so called Pastor as such Leandria Johnson. This is why I don’t attend church now, don’t know who to trust! At this point throw the reality show away, along with her and her fake life she live. All lies!

    Reply
    • To the person that’s judging Leandra and using this to not attend church . We are all sinners save by grace and would should look at the person but the work that God does through her. God uses imperfect to reach those that are just as imperfect. God is the only perfect one ☝🏽. Put prayer in place of judgment. We forget Stars , Ministers, Pastors etc., are human as well .

  5. Sister LeAndria you are an Angel sent from Heaven, you’re saving lives through your music and I don’t think you realize it. Satin wants you to think that no one respects you, that you’re a liar and a hypocrite. Trust in the Lord and He will give you rest. Please set a good example for your children so they don’t turn to people that doesn’t mean them any good. One last thing to remember, whatever you deposit into your life that will be your return. If you deposit Greatness you will have a positive balance. If you deposit negativity into your life you will need over draft protection. I Pray for you my sister because you are a Blessing. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏💓

  6. Leandria, you are an example of the Amazing Grace and Mercy of God! Really, we all are…but when I see the Power of God singing through you, that is a Gift, it would be way worse if you didn’t sing. We as the Church would be like the scribes and the pharasees in the bible, not to receive the gift from God. You can’t help but sing and when you do, God be ministering right back to do. You are bold as a Lion and I at my senior age, know you will go do as a Great as Mahalia Jackson, Arethra Franklin and our Orlando’s own home girl …Leandria Johnson. I am so proud and so blessed as I hear your gift and many shall be saved, healed and delivered because you we have this treasure in earthen vessels,right? Really blessed by This is My Exodus we all need God’s Grace, it is sufficient so like Paul, glory in your infirmities (you are not a hypocrite) so the Power Of God rests on you… cause when you are weak, you are strong. You go girl!

  11. She’s a person just like all of us. I could see the change in her through all her pics, she is in so much pain I know because I’m still searching and it feels as if I’m cold because of the things I’ve been through but you are Gods child he has used you to touch my ❤️ and I thank you for speaking what you feel.

  12. To my sister in Christ Le’Andria Johnson. You have blessed my life in so many ways. I lost my brother this year and it was rough but because of your song Deliver Me with Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Choir that’s became my national ahem. Please continue to let God use you in every way He choose. You are truly a blessing to this world. Le’Andria you also remind me of a close friend of mine name Traci who I wish you could meet one day. She can sing to roof off a building just like you. My prayer is that God continue to use the both for his Glory. Much Love and Respect
