Mary J. Blige’s financial and tax struggle is getting out of hand. The R&B diva has been issued a $900,ooo tax lien in the state of New Jersey.
Blige — who was JUST sued earlier this month for allegedly defaulting on a $500k bank loan — is now on the hook for $901,769.65 in back taxes to the Garden State, this according to official documents obtained by TMZ.
The tax lien is the latest in a string of financial woes for the Grammy winner — just last year, Mary J. was sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan .. and before that, her charity was sued for not paying back a $250k loan.
Back in May, Blige blamed the charity’s financial issues on the staff — saying, “The problem is that I didn’t have the right people in the right places doing the right things.”
Blige graces the cover of the latest VIBE magazine and recently portrayed the late Betty Shabazz, widow of civil rights activist Malcolm X, in a Lifetime channel movie titled Betty & Coretta.
The Yonkers native’s last album, My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1), was released in Nov. 21. Here’s the bright side; with all these hits to her bank account, we can probably expect a new Mary J. Blige album sooner than later, right?
