The Internal Revenue Service has accused singer Mary J. Blige of owing $1,198,161 in back taxes.
The IRS filed a tax lien last month claiming Blige hasn’t paid taxes on income from 2016 and 2017. Blige already has outstanding federal tax liens dating back to her marriage to ex-husband and former manager Kendu Isaacs.
Back in 2013, Blige was hit with a $901,769.65 tax lien. Although she reportedly settled that debt, she was hit with another tax lien — this time for $166,292.77 — in 2016.
Meanwhile, Blige is currently on the road with Nas as part of their Royalty Tour, which began in July. The two are scheduled to wrap up their co-headlining shows in September.
