Mary J. Blige is struggling in the money department! She has been hit with a whopping $900,000 tax lien from the State of New Jersey, according to TMZ. It’s the latest in a string of money issues plaguing the veteran singer.

According to Huffington Post, In early February, Blige was sued by Bank of America for allegedly defaulting on a $500,000 loan. She reportedly took out the loan in 2005 and made steady payments through June 2011. She now owes more than $511,000.

In November, the singer and her husband, Martin Kendu, were the target of a lawsuit filed by Signature Bank of New York Supreme Court for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million loan. The couple apparently took out that loan in October 2011 and began defaulting on it in July of 2012, Reuters reports.

In the spring of 2012, Blige’s notable charity Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., which she runs with Steve Stoute, was accused of mishandling funds. TD Bank filed a $250,000 lawsuit against the foundation. FFAWN later released a statement saying, “FFAWN is working as quickly as possible with a new team of experts that includes a philanthropic consulting firm, a non-profit law firm, and a forensic accountant. Their goal is to get the Foundation back on track, rectifying outstanding issues, and make good on all of FFAWN’s obligations.”

Well this is just really sad…what do you think?

Mary J Blige covers Feb/March Vibe issue

Mary J. Blige is standing strong and firm with her voice as she covers the Feb./March Vibe issue and dishes on Bad Girl Riri and why she is proud of her, she talks R& B music, her hubby and the good vs. bad times.

On the Current State of R&B

“I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing. She is speaking to her generation, and she’s living her life in front of them. I don’t even think she is purposely doing it. She’s such a beautiful girl, and I don’t think she knows she’s that beautiful. She’s just living her life, and leading her generation, and she has great, great songs.”

On People Giving Rihanna a Hard Time Because of Chris Brown
“They give her a hard time because she’s living her life. As long as she’s having fun and isn’t three minutes from shooting herself, good! I want her to be happy. That’s impressive to me. And I love her songs.”

On There Being Moments Where She’s Been Off Course
“There are always moments like that. If you’re not confident in yourself, you’re going to waver. I’ve wavered and I’ve lost. It’s all in the history books. When you’ve had a high of success and then you find yourself chasing, you lose. If you don’t have the patience with yourself to do right by you, you lose. That’s a constant battle.”

On When She Feels Most Beautiful
“When I’m made up and dressed and my heart is good and I feel happy. I’m not going to lie and say I feel beautiful when I have on a hair scarf and I’m running to the gym. I feel confident, but beautiful? That’s on the red carpet.”

On When Her Husband Thinks She’s Most Beautiful“When I’m running to the gym [laughs]. Less is more, I guess. He always tells me, ‘You don’t need all that stuff.’”

On Her Style Being Softer Now
“I’ve evolved, I’m a woman now, and I’ve softened. I’ve been a tomboy my whole life. But then you get older, you get married, you soften up.”
