Mary J Blige, pictured with actress Emma Stone at the Breast Cancer Foundation Benefit
R&B Diva Mary J Blige, pictured above left with actress Emma Stone, was surrounded by untold riches and wealth at the 2013 Peace, Love & A Cure Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation Benefit at a private residence in Cresskill, NJ on Tuesday, May 21.
In February, Uncle Sam hit Blige with a massive $3.4 million tax lien.
Blige, 42, now finds herself in the same sinking boat as R&B legend Lauryn Hill, 36, who was recently sentenced to 3 months in federal prison for income tax evasion. Not even a last minute record deal could help Hill avoid doing federal time.
Blige’s rich friends can’t save her because something in their milk might not be clean, and they don’t want to be audited themselves. The federal government does not play if you are in the top 1% and you claim profit losses and too many deductions on your tax returns. The only way you can get away with not paying your income taxes is if you are Apple, Google, or a personal friend of President Barack Obama.
