According to TMZ, the IRS slapped Mary J. Blige with a $900,000 tax lien. But this only came after a string of lawsuit from financial institutions after she defaulted on loans.

This is what TMZ said:

TMZ has learned the singer has been hit with a $900,000 tax lien in the State of New Jersey.

Blige — who was JUST sued earlier this month for allegedly defaulting on a $500k bank loan — is now on the hook for $901,769.65 in back taxes to the Garden State, this according to official documents obtained by TMZ.

The tax lien is the latest in a string of financial woes for the Grammy winner — just last year, Mary J. was sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan .. and before that, her charity was sued for not paying back a $250k loan.

In recent years we’ve seen several others being rocked with financial problems including actor Wesley Snipe, rapper Bow Wow, comedian Kat Williams, Lindsay Lohan and many more.

    I’m praying that this will all work out for you Mary. You need to let Oprah school you. We have no idea how it is to deal with all the people around you. I believe it has more to do about Mary’s people, than Mary.
