A Mary J. Blige tax lien of $900,000 is adding to the singer's financial woes. At age 42, the hip hop and R&B singer owes nearly a million to state of New Jersey.
According to a report from The Star Ledger on Feb. 17, Mary J. Blige faces several other financial problems in addition to the tax lien. There's a lawsuit against her for a $2.2 million bank loan she defaulted on. Additionally, her charity is also being sued for defaulting on a $250,000 loan. However, the foundation has disputed this, saying the bank should have done its "due diligence" and checked out the foundation's books. If they had, the foundation argues the bank would have realized they couldn't pay the loan back.
Mary J. Blige, a Grammy-winning singer, last released "My Life II..The Journey Continues (Act 1)" back in 2011, and went on The Liberation Tour during 2012. Prior to that she went on the "Music Saved My Life Tour," which could prove to be a very fitting title - if she can release enough new music to pay that tax lien and any other debts off.
