Mary J. Blige’s FFAWN Charity Scandal May Force Kids To Drop Out Of College

According to TMZ reports:

Mary J. Blige’s charity isn’t doing much for higher education, because some of the “beneficiaries” may have to drop out of college because MJB’s foundation reportedly flaked out on paying tuition.

25 seniors who graduated from the all-girls Women’s Academy of Excellence in 2010 were promised four-year scholarships to the college of their choice, says the NY Post, but several of the girls say their tuition bills have gone unpaid.

Gennevive Sarfoah, for example, is attending SUNY Canton and made dean’s list. She tells the paper the charity barely paid her bill in time the first year and she’s received nothing since. She’s had to take out a loan and if the charity doesn’t help out soon, she says she’ll probably have to drop out.

The mother of another girl told the paper her daughter has gone through the same ordeal and has tried calling and emailing the charity, but gotten no response back.

As TMZ previously reported, Blige’s charity was sued by TD Bank for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan. Blige told TMZ she “didn’t have the right people in the right places doing the right things” and they were trying to fix things.

Uh, yeah, they better make it right ASAP! We’d be pissed if we had to drop out of school and incurr debt behind Mary J. and her finger-lickin’ shenanigans
