*What is going on with Mary J Blige? Her money troubles just keep following her around like a bad habit.
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.
*Sheree Whitfield is going through it y’all.
While on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she was going through lawsuit troubles with the law firm that handled her divorce from NFL offensive tackle, Bob Whitfield.
The suit began in 2010 after she made a partial payment of $69,000. But she claimed the firm overcharged her.
However the judge didn’t see it the same way and is ordering her to pay up $96,000, plus interest, according to TMZ. The total bill is now at $119,674.
Her money troubles could be the root of her issues. According to reports, the former reality show star and super star to be (still trying to find her talent) made ridiculous salary demands, and as a result, was fired from “RHOA.”
*Mike Tyson is an international icon, and now he has a large international court bill to pay.
The former heavy weight champion of the world was ordered to pay $8,000 in compensation to the organizer of a boxing gala in Poland since he was a no-show.
The Polish organizer of the gala, Tomasz Babilonski, sued Tyson in March for $48,000 compensation and interest.
The Gazeta Wyborcza daily said Babilonski filed the suit because Tyson’s managers were refusing to talk about any compensation.
Tyson did not appeal the decision, so it will be carried out this month.
