Mary J. Blige's Charity Sued For Fraud
Mary J. Blige's charity was lent $250,000 but only got $400 back.
Mary J. Blige's Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now is being sued by TD Bank over a $250k loan it took out back in June 2011.
According to a suit filed in New York, the foundation agreed to pay the money back by December 2011, but when the time came to collect only $400 was given.
This lawsuit isn't the only troubles with which the foundation is dealing. It didn't file a federal tax return for 2010, It's also being sued by musicians from a 2011 fundraising gala who claim when it came time for payment they weren't paid either.
All Mary J. Blige's rep said, "We remain committed to our mandate of helping women gain the confidence and skills necessary to reach their full individual potential."
