For more than two decades, Michael McCary was a part of one of the most successful music acts of the ‘80s and ‘90s, until he and Boyz II Men parted ways in 2003. The split wasn’t amicable, and for years, people referenced an unnamed health condition at the root of the band’s breakup. Now, McCary is sharing what that health condition is: multiple sclerosis.
Appearing on an episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” alongside five other men, McCary opens up in a group session about the abandonment and betrayal he felt from his ex-bandmates in Boyz II Men. The conversation then turns to his health, as life coach Iyanla Vanzant encourages McCary to speak the truth he’s kept inside for so long.
“I have MS,” he says. “It sent me into a depression.”
McCary says he was in Boyz II Men when he first noticed strange symptoms appearing. “It was like little back spasms at first, and then they would get stronger and stronger. Each time it would get more harsh,” he says. “Once I was about 22, it started going to full-scale.”
