Uncle Sam is reportedly looking to collect more than $1 million from Mary J. Blige. According to sources, the Internal Revenue Service has accused the artist of owing $1,198,161 in back taxes.

The IRS filed a tax lien, which was obtained by Bossip, last month claiming Blige hasn’t paid taxes on income from 2016 and 2017. The Queen Of Hip Hop Soul already has outstanding federal tax liens dating back to her marriage to ex-husband and former manager Kendu Isaacs.

In 2013, Mary was hit with a $901,769.65 tax lien. Although she reportedly settled that debt, she was hit with another tax lien, this time for $166,292.77 in 2016.
