    Mary J. Blige and her husband have been hit with a $3.4 million 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 Feb. 7. That was two days before the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul was honored at a pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.

    Blige and husband Martin Isaacs have a home in Cresskill, N.J., about 15 miles 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 $2.2 million for 2010 and more than $647,000 for 2011.

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