Mary J. Blige's

Just when you thought Mary J. Blige's financial problems couldn't get any worse ... TMZ has learned the singer has been hit with a $900,000 tax lien in the State of New Jersey.

Blige -- who was JUST sued earlier this month for allegedly defaulting on a $500k bank loan -- is now on the hook for $901,769.65 in back taxes to the Garden State, this according to official documents obtained by TMZ.

The tax lien is the latest in a string of financial woes for the Grammy winner -- just last year, Mary J. was sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan ..  and before that, her charity was sued for not paying back a $250k loan.

Back in May, Blige blamed the charity's financial issues on the staff -- saying, "The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things."

We reached out to Blige's camp for comment on the tax lien -- but so far, radio silence.

Here's the blame game...blame your staff.....blame everyone but yourself ! She is a hit and miss in the music dept...will have one hit..then none for years.....Everyone knows she married a no good money grubbing idiot...and she picked up his habits. Whose fault is it now that you have tax problems? No one but yours...so I don't feel sorry for her at all!

According to 2012 Forbes, this woman has a net worth of $45 million. So WTF would she need a bank loan, etc and all this $$ issues is plain ridiculous. It is disgusting these people cannot find people to manage their $$. The problem is, they get unqualified family and friends and end up in a mess. Just stupid.
