Mary J. Evicted from Penthouse - Owes Everybody, Including Uncle Sam

Mary J. Blige Handed $3.4 Million Tax Lien by IRS
After recent reports that Mary J. Blige was getting evicted from her NYC penthouse,  apparently this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to her financial woes.

TMZ reports the IRS has filed a tax lien for $3.4 million, which is the total unpaid taxes from years  2009, 2010, and 2011.  Now it doesn't stop here.  In fact, a year ago, Blige's foundation, The Marjy J. Blige and Steven Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN)  was hit with a lawsuit claiming the organization failed to pay back a $250,000 loan, and another by Signature Bank for slow pay on a $2.2 million loan. In February of this year, it was reported that Mary owed $901,769.65 in back taxes to the state of New Jersey alone.

Blige is also facing a pending lawsuit from The Bank of America, who claims she only partially paid back a loan for $500,000.

Mary hasn’t publicly addressed her financial troubles, but last May, she addressed FFAWN’s financial shortcomings, holding to task those she put in place to manage the finances.

"The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things," Mary said on a 2012 radio interview.

Let's hope Mary J.  can work out these problems so she doesn't have to share a cell with, hmmm, Lauryn Hill.
