Recent reports have surfaced stating that the singer could quite possibly be facing eviction after a notice was placed on the door of her $12,000 a month New York City Penthouse apartment. But that is only the icing on the cake for Mary J.’s financial issues as of late.
Miss Mary J., who once had a net worth of upwards of $45 million, has been in a the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now world of financial problems since late last year. Back in May of 2012, Mary J.’s charity, was sued after taking out a $250,000 loan, and only paying back a measly $400 bucks.
After that, Mary J. herself was sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million dollar bank loan. After that, back in December of 2012, Mary J was hit with a $900,000 tax lien by the state of New Jersey, for back taxes that she owes. The embattled singer has also been fighting off a ton of copyright infringement lawsuits, and experts say that this alone could be costing her upwards of $1 million each year.
Once you add all of these things together, it’s easy to see how Mary J.’s bank account has been draining, and fast! We’re hoping she is able to get a handle on these issues soon, before she lands herself in even more financial trouble.
Mary J. Blige currently rents a swanky New York City Penthouse apartment. The uber exclusive building, known as The Ashley, features a basketball court, state of the art gym, bowling alley, swimming pool, rock climbing area and more.
The penthouse is advertised for as much as $15,500 per month, and three bedroom apartments like the one Blige is reported to rent go for anywhere between $9000 and $12,000 per month, depending on amenities and the view. We are told that Mary J. lived in the building about a year before the note popped up on her door.
We are guessing that Mary sorted out the problem with building management, but it is not clear as of the date of this post. We are hoping that things begin to improve for Mary J., and maybe her 2013 will turn out to be better for her than her 2012 was!
