The IRS is laying the smackdown on fools lately. Earlier this month, Lauryn Hill got off with a slap on the wrist and a three-month prison sentence. However, if Mary J. Blige isn't careful, she and Lauryn Hill may be summer cellmates.
According to the New York Daily News, Blige owes $3.4 million in taxes for the years of 2009, 2010 and 2011. That's some reckless negligence on her or her accountant's part.
I'm not sure how her agents lost track of $3.4 million in taxes, but somebody needs to have a talk with Mary J. This is some drama she definitely doesn't want. She needs to be digging for all the loose change in her purse and couch to settle this tax lien before the IRS leans its weight on her.
