Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems! Mary J. Blige Has $3.4 Million Tax Lien

She's most known for singing about love and tenderness but there's nothing warm or fuzzy about singer Mary J. Blige's military–style workout. Shape Magazine reports that the "Real Love" singer gets downright gritty with her TRX suspension workout which was originally developed for Navy Seals. The strap and handle weight-training system targets every single muscle group, as well as improves balance and flexibility. Talk about a total body workout. At the beach or in the backyard, fasten the straps and you're working out and sweating in no time. If you're looking for something to buy with all of those holiday gift cards, the TRX system might be just the thing. Take on the challenge this winter.

I know she said she’s “not gon’ cry,” but given this news she’s more than entitled to shed a few tears.

Mary J. Blige‘s financial woes have gotten much much worse. On top of the $900k she allegedly owes the state of New Jersey, TMZ is reporting that Mary J. has been slapped with a $3.4 million bill from Uncle Sam.

The IRS filed a federal tax lien against the Grammy winner, claiming she failed to pay all her income taxes for the years 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53) and 2011 ($647,604.60).

Tax bill grand total: $3,426,255.43. My goodness!

Of course, the federal tax lien comes on the heels of MJB still owing $901,769.65 in back state taxes. Furthermore, 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.

We truly hope that Mary J. can get back on track with all of this. Not only does it seem like downright daunting, but these tax issues seem to be cryptonite for celebrities these days. Lauryn Hill, Matthew Knowles, Lindsay Lohan, Wesley Snipes… SMH.

We’re pulling for you Mary!
