TRENTON, N.J., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Mary J. Blige now has a $900,000 tax lien in New Jersey to add to a list of other financial woes, TMZ.com reported.

Documents show she also owes $901,769.65 in back taxes to New Jersey.

Blige was sued earlier this month for defaulting on a $500,000 bank loan, TMZ said.

The singer was also sued last year for defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan, TMZ said, and before that, her charity was sued for not paying back a $250,000 loan.

Blige blamed the charity's financial staff for the problems last year, TMZ said.

"The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things," she told TMZ.
