The singer’s financial troubles are worse than a little repossession here or a tax lien there. She’s about to be homeless in a minute.
According to the New York Daily News, she’s not been paying her rent in the upper West Side apartment since last November and she might get kicked out.
“It was for not paying back rent,” said a real estate source who has leased apartments at the building. A three-bedroom apartment at the Extell Development site, similar to the one Blige was renting, rents for $9,000 to $12,000 monthly, depending on the view and amenities.
The NY Daily News says the 42-year-old singer was there for a little more than a year before the note was plastered on the front door of the pad.
Why her money is funny is a curious question. Blige’s net worth at one point was a reported $45 million, but she’s been hit with a few copyright infringement lawsuits lately that could cost her somewhere around $1 million yearly.
Last year, New Jersey filed a $901,769 lien against her. She was also sued for failure to repay a $2.2 million personal loan.
It’s all bad for Mary.
