Mary J. Blige hit with $3.4 million tax lien

Lauryn Hill isn’t the only soul legend in tax trouble.

TMZ reports that the IRS has filed a federal tax lien against Blige, who they claim did not pay taxes in 2009, 2010, or 2011, for a tax bill of $3,426,255.43.

The federal tax lien is the latest in a long line of legal troubles for the singer. Earlier this year, New Jersey issued a $900,000 tax lien against her, and she is being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan.

Blige’s last album, 2011’s My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1), was the sequel to her iconic 1994 album My Life, and she was featured on Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City. The news comes on the heels of Lauryn Hill’s three month prison sentence for failure to pay taxes on about $1 million.
