Mary J. Blige Owes Uncle Sam Too!

I don’t know what’s wrong with our Black celebrities not paying their dues lately. Lauryn Hill is on her way to serve time shortly, Wesley Snipes just got out the joint and now Mary J. Blige was slapped with a $3,426,255.43 tax bill according to TMZ.

A while back, the word was out that she originally owed around two million dollars but it looks like that number has spiked since then (I guess the IRS  went back and double checked their work). Not to mention the speculation surrounding her shady, unpaid  scholarship awards or the “additional $900k she allegedly owes the Garden State” TMZ reported that she still owes.

As reported by TMZ:

Of course, the IRS needs to get in line … the State of NJ says MJB still owes $901,769.65 in back taxes. Blige is being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan and her charity is facing a lawsuit that claims it took out a $250k loan and never paid it back.I really don’t understand the problem here, especially when it comes to the rich and famous not paying taxes. I mean, the majority of them have the money, even if they have to sell off their extra material items to do so but still fail to abide by the law. I will give them a slight benefit of doubt by implying that maybe due to their busy celebrity lifestyles, they have let it slip their minds (although a 3 million dollar bill would slip no ones mind) or maybe their business management team is crooked, corrupt and untrustworthy.
Mary, if you happened to have been in some bad management situations when this money fiasco went up in flames, I pray that you have since resolved the problem and please PAY OFF YOUR BILL! They teased Lauren Hill at first by saying she didn’t have to do jail time but just like her, you’re going down too if Uncle Sam doesn’t get his fair share.
