The Internal Revenue Service investigating the Queen of Hip Hop Soul for not paying her taxes.

According to TMZ, she owes $3,426,255.43 to Uncle Sam for unpaid income taxes for the past three years.

Records show that the IRS officially filed a federal tax lien in February in Bergen County Court against Mary J., adding to her already substantial financial woes, which include $901,769.65 in back taxes owed to the state of New Jersey and lawsuits: one against her charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan and another by Signature Bank for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan.

If that weren’t enough, the nine-time Grammy Award winner was also sued in New York state supreme court by Bank of America, who allege that the Bronx-born chanteuse took out a $500,000 loan and only paid a portion of it back. The bank is seeking $514,000, which is the total amount of the unpaid principal of the loan plus interest.

Mary has yet to comment on her latest tales of monetary woe, but last year, she blamed her charity’s pecuniary issues on the staff.

“The problem is that I didn’t have the right people in the right places doing the right things,” Mary said last May.
