Mary J. Blige Slapped With $3.4 Million Tax Lien From IRS
Mary J. Blige is facing serious financial drama in her life. The IRS has filed a $3.4 million federal tax lien against the singer, claiming she hasn’t paid income taxes for the years of 2009, 2010 and 2011.
And Mary’s money woes don’t end there. According to TMZ, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul owes the state of New Jersey $901,769 in back taxes. Blige is also being sued by Signature Bank — the financial institution claims she defaulted on a $2.2 million dollar loan.
And that’s not all.
TD Bank is also suing Blige’s charity, the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan.
According to MTV, Bank of America is suing the Grammy Award-winning singer for payment on a $500,000 loan plus interest.
Also, artists need to hire better accountants. Sheesh!
Hopefully, Blige can pay back all of her debts. She’s an R&B icon and we don’t want to see her going to jail for tax evasion.
