Celsbs Out & About: Mary J Blige, Chris Rock, Emma Stone, Gayle King, Kevin Liles, Lyor Cohen

Mary J Blige and Emma Stone

R&B Diva Mary J Blige, pictured above left with actress Emma Stone, was surrounded by untold riches and wealth at the 2013 Peace, Love & A Cure Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation Benefit at a private residence in Cresskill, NJ on Tuesday, May 21.

In February, Uncle Sam hit Blige with a massive $3.4 million tax lien.

Blige, 42, now finds herself in the same sinking boat as R&B legend Lauryn Hill, 36, who was recently sentenced to 3 months in federal prison for income tax evasion. Not even a last minute record deal could help Hill avoid doing federal time.

Blige’s rich friends can’t save her because something in their milk might not be clean, and they don’t want to be audited themselves. The federal government does not play if you are in the top 1% and you claim profit losses and too many deductions on your tax returns. The only way you can get away with not paying your income taxes is if you are Apple, Google, or a personal friend of President Barack Obama.

    I been saying this for years!!! I love me some Mary and I will continue to buy her music no matter how “blah” it is but I remember watching a behind the scenes DVD some years back and it was obvious that Kendu was a bit controlling. Also, I wonder if she still has that private plane that she purchased. Now may be a good time to sell that off Mary!!! I bet her next album is gonna be the ish because when her life is in the struggle, it makes for great music!!! :yes:

    Yup. Says right in the code they can apply the laws as they see fit. So best believe if “Mother Theresa” did the exact same thing as “Lil Wayne” they won’t be treated the same.

    they have very little oversight and a lot of clout. They already had one “reform” when they basically outright and openly abused power. Looks like they doin it again these days.
