Mary J. Blige has a steep hill to climb when it comes to fixing her messy finances. Get the deets on her $3.4 million tax lien and a recap of her other money woes inside...
Fans of Mary J. Blige may be getting a really GOOD album in the future, because the "411" is there's more "Drama" in the "Life" of "Mary". You like that good wordage huh?
You'll recall that folks have been concerned about Mary's finances for many many years. First, we had reports that her charitable organization FFAWN (Foundation For The Advancement Of Women Now, Inc.) failed to make good on a few loans, and then we heard rumors that MJB was falling behind on her rent in NYC. Now...we're getting the full story on what she owes Uncle Sam. Here come the Growing Pains: TMZ reports that she owes for the years 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53) and 2011 ($647,604.60) totaling $3.4 million!
To pay off that bill, the Queen of Soul will need The Breakthrough. And don't forget, she still owes $901,769.65 in back taxes to the state of New Jersey and she allegedly defaulted on a $2.2 million bank loan! Hmm...it might be time for a new collection of Bad Boy remixes. Lawd Mary!
Former NFL star Chad Ochocinco was JUST hauled off to jail after a judge in Florida determined he was in violation of his parole. Find out why Chad's behind bars inside....
Earlier this morning, Chad Ochocinco appeared before a Broward County judge in Florida after allegedly violating his parole that originallu stemmed from a 2012 arrest for a domestic violence dispute with now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
According to TMZ, a judge determined that Chad had indeed violated his parole after he "...failed to report to his probation officer on 2 occasions AND failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class." Chad has been jailed and his bail will be set momentarily. But....there's more.
Chad's also in dire financial straits since he no longer commands a baller's salary, yet's he STILL obligated to make $5,420 per month child support payments to baby momma Amanda Pearson! Unfortuantely...he can't really afford them.
In recently filed court documents, Chad is begging the courts to reduce his obligations now that he "finds himself without a contract and without a team. Simply [I am] unemployed."
We know America loves a redemption story....but Chad has a steep hill to climb.
Totally broke after being one of the cockiest and flashiest NFLers in the league? Chile cheese....
TheYBF.com has the first official listen of K. Michelle's lead single off her debut studio album Rebellious Soul. Check out the soon-to-be-summer banger "V.S.O.P" inside...
It's no wonder she's separating herself from "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta." This chick's got serious talent and wants to be taken just as seriously for her art. And we're not mad at that.
After garnering tons of fans as a mixtape R&B artist, K.Michelle is ready to be officially official. She's performing all over the country offering up a a voice that won't quit. And now she's gearing up to release her hot new upcoming debut studio album. While we love the K.Michelle table shakes, it's all about her music now.
Her first official single, "V.S.O.P", is an uptempo ballad produced by Pop & Oak. And it samples one of our fave classics, Debra Laws' "Very Special." K. sings a chorus that plays on the Hennessy drink of the same name and it's all about catering to her boo:
We gon' light some candles tonight/Very Special
We gon do whatever you like/Very Special
Got your Henny chillin' on ice/Very Special
Hope you make the rest of my life/Very Special
Check out "V.S.O.P" below:
We're loving it. Are you?
K. is set to drop her appropriately titled Rebellious Soul July 30th. And "V.S.O.P" is available on iTunes now: atlr.ec/kmvsop!
