Mary J. Blige Facing Eviction
Via NYDailyNews reports:
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.
Less money and still mo problems. Time to pay up Mary!!!
