Today, the New York Post revealed the perilous financial situation over at Mary J. Blige's Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, which has just been hit by two lawsuits over unpaid bills. The foundation, whose website offers scholarships and women's issue workshops, owes $167,252 to a group of performers at a recent fund-raising gala and failed to pay back a $250,000 bank loan. All that's known about Blige's involvement with the group, apart from a few TV appearances to promote it, is a $25,000 donation in 2009 and a pledge to give $60,000 from the sale of her fragrance in 2010, money that appears to be unaccounted for.
