So much for "No More Drama."
Mary J. Blige has been hit with a $900,000 tax lien by the state of New Jersey, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
The tax lien is the newest in a long line of recent financial problems for Mary J. Blige, including the 42-year-old "Real Love" singer allegedly defaulting on a $500,000 loan last month.
Last year, Blige and her husband Martin Isaacs were sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan. The Huffington Post reports that according to a lawsuit filed by Bank of America in New York State Supreme Court, Blige took out the loan in 2005 and stopped paying it back in June 2012.
Additionally, Blige's charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., was accused of mishandling funds and cheating scholarship students.
The organization was sued for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan.
Blige told TMZ in May that it was her staff that was responsible for the financial malfeasance.
"The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things," the singer said.
Mary J. Blige representatives have yet to comment on the tax lien.
