Mary, this is…out of hand.
In documents obtained by TMZ, singer Mary J. Blige has been hit with a tax lien by the state of New Jersey. The documents state that Mary owes the government $901,769.65 in back taxes. They didn’t state what years the IRS is seeking back pay but she’s probably missed at least two years.
This is just the latest string of financial problems and embarrassments for Mary. It was just over a week ago that we told you she defaulted on a loan from Bank of America and now owes them over $500,000. When she was asked about it, she said was that all she can do is just keep pushing on on and “let haters hate.” Ahhh yes, those haters sure do know how to get you in alleged financial trouble, don’t they?
But even prior to that, she defaulted on a $2.2 million dollar loan and before that, she was sued because of her charity not paying back money.
It would seem like when you suddenly find yourself in major situations like this on an almost consistent basis, not only would you fire your accountants (even if they’re flesh and blood), but you might also consider taking some accounting classes so you can figure out how to go over the books yourself. There just doesn’t seem to be a logical reason for these things to keep happening.
TMZ reached out to Mary’s reps but so far, they’ve received no response.
