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.
