Proud Mary keeps on burning…with anger!

We reported earlier how Mary J. Blige was being sued by Vision Entertainment Worldwide for breaching her contract by playing hookie at a Dallas concert to go perform at the Barclays Center with Mick Jagger.

Now, she's countersuing, saying that the promotional company breached the contract by not giving Mary and her friends first class air travel.

No free champagne, no early boarding, no service from Mary J.!

Not only is Mary demanding that she keep the $145k advance for the concert, but she's asking for the rest of her bill from the deal, which is a sum of $105,000, or roughly the price of one round trip first-class ticket (JK!)

If VEW thought she was gon' cry, they were wrong…she gon' sue!

Looks like this promotional company has got some extra baggage now!

Chris Brown Has L.A. Pride On The BET Awards Red Carpet

Chris Brown brushed his legal troubles aside and made an appearance at the BET Awards Sunday night looking as casual as ever.

He marched onto the red carpet with Sevyn Streeter, who has not only written tunes for Breezy, but also for Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys, and looked awfully close as he put his arm around her.

Breezy wore black jeans, a black jacket and showed off his L.A. pride by wearing a Los Angeles Dodgers snapback while Sevyn flaunted her toned abs in a white crop top and matching mini skirt with a white sheer overlay.

She looked great, but we're not too sure about her neon heels.

Let's just hope Chris didn't drive them to the show himself. The last thing he needs is to get stopped by the cops and miss his performance!

We all know Mary J. Blige preaches no more drama…

But girlfriend can't seem to get it out of her life!

Mary J. is being sued for allegedly bailing on a Dallas concert last December.

Mary J. Blige's Tax Woes QUADRUPLE To $3.4 Million!

| Filed under: Busted!Lauryn HillMary J. Blige

mary j blige tax lien millions

Whoa!

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!!!!!!

Believe it!

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.

OUCH!

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??

Mary J. Blige's Debt DISASTER Continues! She Owes The Garden State $900K In Back Taxes!

| Filed under: Legal MattersMary J. BligeBusiness Blitz

mary-j-blige-900k-tax-lien-new-jersey-another-financial-misfire

Ruh-roh!

The tax man has cometh, and Mary J. Blige was unprepared!

The unofficial Queen of R&B was SHOCKED when the state of New Jersey recently hit her with a tax lien for $901,769.65!

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!
