It’s the most recent financial woe facing the singer. Earlier this year she was hit with a $900K tax lien from the state of New Jersey. She was also sued by Bank of America in February for defaulting on a $500K loan. And in November of 2012, Blige and her husband, Martin Kendu, were the target of a lawsuit filed by Signature Bank in New York’s supreme court for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million loan. [TMZ]
