Mary J. Blige sued for defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan
Mary J. Blige is facing some major financial problems. The R&B singer and her husband have defaulted on a $2.2 million loan that they took out from Signature Bank last year, and now Signature is coming to collect.
Court documents filed in the New York Supreme Court show that the bank is looking to get back that loan plus $58,000 in interest. The couple took out the loan in October 2011 but defaulted in July 2012, Reuters reports.
This isn't the only financial trouble Blige has been in recently. The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc. came under fire earlier this year for allegedly cheating scholarship students out of money and generally mishandling funds. Blige later told Reuters she'd get the situation back on track, saying, "The lives of young women are at stake. I feel what they feel. I don't want them to suffer. I promised them something and I'm gonna deliver. Period."
