Mary J. Blige was just hit with a $900,000 tax lien from the state of New Jersey.
According to the Huffington Post, Blige owes $901,769.65 in unpaid taxes to New Jersey. That’s a pretty big financial problem on its own but it isn’t the only one plaguing the “No More Drama” singer.
Blige was sued earlier this month for defaulting on a $500,000 bank loan. According to the lawsuit, Blige took out a loan in 2005 but stopped making payments last Summer.
And yes, there’s even more bad financial news for Blige. Last November the singer was hit with another lawsuit for failing to pay off a bank loan. UPI reports that Blige failed to pay back a $2.2 million loan from the Signature Bank in New York. The bank is suing for the original amount of the loan plus $58,000 in interest.
The only good news in Blige’s situation is that her financial woes really can’t get any worse. Oh wait, according to TMZ, the singer’s charity is also being sued for mishandling funds. The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc was sued in 2012 for defaulting on a $250,00o loan.
Blige isn’t the only celebrity to be hit with a hefty tax lien recently (Snoop Dogg reportedly owes $500,000 in back taxes) but Blige is the only celebrity at the moment dealing with multiple lawsuits, a $900,000 tax lien, and a charity scandal.
