Mary J. Blige's

FINANCIAL DISASTER

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.

There was a recent blind item about her money problems. It's that damn husband, Kendu screwing her over. I think she was so eager to love and be loved that she missed some clues about dude. Sad.

Hey TMZ.....I guess you guys could not sacrifice few more keystrokes to mention the name of her foundation. All you guys want to do is report on the negative ish with certain African American celebrities...YOU GUYS ARE SO TRANSPATENT!!! And tell the tall blonde, skinnny dude with the long, greasy, stringy, hair to try washing it every once in awhile!!

2012 taxes are due in a couple of months. Don't "forget" about them too. I swear, if all the tax cheaters and non-payers would pay up, we probably would not have 16 trillion in debt. PAY YOUR TAXES MJB!!

It is racial....and for those of you who don't think it is you better think again!! This country is more polarized racially than ever before!!! Who says TMZ even has all the facts right according to all of these allegations about MJB's money or any other African American celebrity???!!! TMZ operates off of exposing other people's misery!

I guess she might not be an Obama supporter now, being that Obama and the Democratic party is all for taxes and raising them.
