Mary J. Blige Lawsuit

I'm A First Class Star

So Treat Me Like One

EXCLUSIVE

Mary J. Blige
is a big star who deserves to be treated like a big star and if you try to sue her ...she will try to crush you in court like the big star that she is -- at least that's how it seems in new legal docs.

MJB is firing back at Vision Entertainment Worldwide -- a company that sued her for bailing on a concert last December ... to the tune of $145K which was her advance.

Mary's response -- sue me ... sue you!  In her countersuit, MJB says if anybody breached the contract ... it was VEW -- because it failed to provide first-class air travel for her and her crew ...  because that's what an artist of her stature deserves.

She has absolutely no plans to give back the $145K ... in fact ... she's demanding the company pay her the balance of the deal -- $105,000.

Mary don't fly coach.

ok    

Her hip hop producer buddies kept her career afloat? I don't get the appeal, as her voice seems all over the place and she comes off out of tune all the time.

Is this the same person who pretended to be 29 years old or something and it turned out she's over 50?

Another once was, still thinking she is hot sh*t in a champagne glass while all she truly is is a cold turd in a Dixie cup.

I still have not heard of her outside the stories TMZ runs about her finances. I thought she was a Real Housewife.

She is a big star you *******s legendary actually and artist typically have travel expenses in their contract obviously they didn't do their part. She doesn't have a big ego never has and her last album was 2012 not 1994 she has been consistently putting out hits since 1992 and has sold over 50 million records. Be Without You and Family Affair are two of the biggest hits of the past decade *******s
