Mary J. Blige Money Woes Continue, Allegedly Having Trouble Paying Rent! [Details]

Mary J. Blige’s financial issues just seem to get worse and worse.

Blige was hit with a $901,769.65 tax lien in the State of New Jersey a couple of days ago. Before then, she was sued by Bank of America in New York State Supreme Court for allegedly defaulting on a $500,000 bank loan that took out in 2005. She stopped making re-payments in June 2012.

And to make matters worse, Blige and her husband Martin Isaacs were sued by Signature Bank last November after they failed to pay off a $2.2 million bank loan. The bank wants to recoup the original loan plus $58,000 in interest.

 Now the New York Daily News reports:

Here’s the 411 on Mary J. Blige’s financial troubles — they’re worse than we thought. The “No More Drama” singer’s reported money problems have gotten so bad, she was slapped with a notice on the door of her tony upper West Side apartment building after it was discovered that she “had a rent-paying problem” last November. The luxe building, the Ashley, boasts a basketball court, state-of-the-art gym and bowling alley.

“It was for not paying back rent,” said a real estate source who has leased apartments at the building. A three-bedroom apartment at the Extell Development site, similar to the one Blige was renting, rents for $9,000 to $12,000 monthly, depending on the view and amenities. Our source says the 42-year-old singer was there for a little more than a year before the note was plastered on the front door of the pad.

It is not clear if Blige sorted out the problem with building management.

Blige’s charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc, is also in hot water. Last year, the foundation was accused of mishandling funds and cheating scholarship students. The foundation was sued for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan.
