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.
