Mary J. Blige Faces Tax Lien on New Jersey Mansion
by James F. McDonough, Jr. on February 21, 2013
Grammy winner and R&B artist Mary J. Blige is facing a host of financial issues that recently culminated in a $900,000 tax lien being placed on her home.
The state of New Jersey imposed the lien on Blige's 18,250-square-foot mansion in Saddle River after Blige violated tax law by failing to pay back taxes. She bought the home with her husband in 2008 for the price of $12.5 million, and quickly ran into financial issues trying to make the annual $100,000 property tax payments. The French country-style home features an indoor movie theater, fitness center, gourmet kitchen and eight bedrooms, according to AOL Real Estate. The lien is not the only issue the top-selling artist is facing.
