Blige is also being sued by Bank of America for not paying back a $500,000 loan she took out in 2002.

Blige is slashing the price tag on her Saddle River home ,which includes plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing, including an indoor movie theater, fitness center, gourmet kitchen and eight bedrooms.

The R&B diva has had the home listed for sale since 2011, dropping from an original asking price of $14 million to its current price at $12.5 million.

BHR Exclusive Report Below

Here’s the 411 on Mary J. Blige’s financial troubles — they’re worse than we thought. 

The “No More Drama” singer’s reported money problems have gotten so bad, she was 

slapped with a notice on the door of her tony upper West Side apartment building after it 

was discovered that she “had a rent-paying problem” last November. The luxe building, the 

Ashley, boasts a basketball court, state-of-the-art gym and bowling alley.

“It was for not paying back rent,” said a real estate source who has leased apartments at the

building. A three-bedroom apartment at the Extell 

Development site, similar to the one Blige was renting, rents for $9,000 to $12,000 

monthly, depending on the view and amenities. Our source says the 42-year-old singer was 

there for a little more than a year before the note was plastered on the front door of the pad.

It is not clear if Blige sorted out the problem with building management.

As to what could be rapidly draining her fortune, Blige has been fighting a series of copyright

infringement lawsuits. A music industry insider estimates this could be costing her upwards

of $1 million yearly.

Blige, whose net worth was at one point a reported $45 million, has dug herself into a huge 

financial hole. In December, New Jersey filed a $901,769 lien against the singer. In 

November she was sued for failure to repay a $2.2 million personal loan that she and 

husband Kendu Isaacs defaulted on.

According to court documents filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, 

Signature Bank is seeking to recoup the original loan plus $58,000 in interest. The suit also

 names her production company, 

Mary Jane Productions Inc. Blige’s charity, the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation 

 for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., is also in trouble. TD Bank sued for failing to pay back a 

$250,000 loan, and scholarships awarded to girls are  reported to have gone unpaid. The 

“Be Without You” singer said at the time: “The lives of young women are at stake. I don’t 

want them to suffer. I promised them something and I’m 

gonna deliver. Period.”The R&B star has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide.


  A rep for the singer and a music manager for Blige did not return calls for comment
