Hackensack - Mary J Blige and her husband have been hit with a $3.4m tax lien in New Jersey.

Court documents show the Internal Revenue Service filed a notice of a lien on the nine-time Grammy Award winner on 7 February. That was two days before the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul was honoured at a pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.

Blige and husband Martin Isaacs have a home in Cresskill, New Jersey, north of New York City.

Court documents show as of the date of the IRS notice Blige owed more than $574 000 for the 2009 tax year, more than $2.2m for 2010 and more than $647 000 for 2011.

A Blige representative said on Thursday she's working "with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible".
