Mary J. Blige Hit With $3.4 Million Tax Lien

Mary J. Blige

The 'Be Without You' crooner fails to pay her income taxes to the IRS from the years 2009 until 2011.

Mary J. Blige is facing a new financial issue. The "Be Without You" hitmaker is sued by the Internal Revenue Service for owing $3.4M in unpaid taxes. TMZ reports she failed to pay income taxes totaling around $574,000 in 2009, $2.2M in 2010, and $674,000 in 2011.

This adds to Mary J's list of problems. She still owes $901,000 to the state of New Jersey in back taxes. She also has outstanding debts stemming from lawsuits against her charity for failing to pay back several bank loans including a hefty $2.2M taken out from Signature Bank.

When responding to her financial problems last year, the singer blamed her staff for mismanagement. "The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things," she said in a statement back then.

"Mary has been and is continuing to work with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible," her rep said.
