Mary J. Blige and her husband have been hit with a $3.4 million tax lien in New Jersey, which is the second action by the Internal Revenue Service to collect since February.
Court documents show the Internal Revenue Service filed a notice of a lien on the nine-time Grammy Award winner Feb. 7. That was two days before the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul was honored at a pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.
Blige and husband Martin Isaacs have a home in Cresskill, N.J., about 15 miles north of New York City.
Court documents show as of the date of the IRS notice Blige owed more than $574,000 for the 2009 tax year, more than $2.2 million for 2010 and more than $647,000 for 2011.
A Blige representative said Thursday she’s working “with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible.”
The “Be Without You” singer has a list of money woes to handle at the moment. Her back taxes owed to New Jersey equal $901,769.65 and she is currently being sued for reportedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan.
Also, the charity that she founded alongside Steve Stoute — the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now – is at the center of a lawsuit. TD Bank is suing the foundation for a $250,000 loan that was never repaid.
