While it was first reported that Mary J. Blige owed a heaping $900,000 to the New Jersey state in taxes, we've come to learn that she actually owes an INSANE $3,426,255.43 in total between NJ and federal taxes!!!!!!
The Grammy winner ignored bills from the IRS in 2009 for $574,907.30, 2010 for $2,203,743.53, and 2011 for $647,604.60 AS WELL AS the initial $901,769.65 she needs to cough up to the Garden State.
Let us also not forget that she defaulted on a $2.2 million bank loan and the charity that is suing her for never paying back a $250,000 loan.
We'd advise her to break out that check book and fast, but something tells us not even an uber-successful songstress like Mary has that kind of cash!
Looks like Lauryn Hill could very well be getting a musically-inclined cell mate!
On the bright side, wouldn't they would make a GREAT singing duo??
The tax man has cometh, and Mary J. Blige was unprepared!

Whoa!! We don't care how fancy a couch you own, that kind of change doesn't hide out underneath cushions!!
Worse yet, this ruling comes only a few months after the ah-mazing artist was targeted in a lawsuit after allegedly defaulting on a bank loan of over $2 mil!!!
Yikes! The I'm Going Down singer might be doing just that if she doesn't scrounge up piles of cash soon!
Good luck, Mary J.!! We're pulling for you!

Miley Cyrus couldn't be tamed by longtime label Hollywood Records, so she has now signed with RCA with the promise of allowing her to spread her MileyBird wings!!!
The former Disney Channel star will be joining the likes of Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Chris Brown on the label, so we'd say her career is in some pretty talented and trustworthy hands.
Under the direction of RCA, the former Disney Channel star's next album will feature a slew of star-studded collaborators including Pharrell Williams, Hit-Boy, Da Internz, Mary J. Blige and Tyler, the Creator.
