    Mary J. Blige's charity organization is facing possible investigation after allegedly failing to file its 2010 tax return. That's not good news. Even worse, money is missing. Gulp!

    The singer filed The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN) with a former record label executive in 2007, but now its appropriation of finances is being investigated.

    FFAWN bosses allegedly neglected to file its tax returns for the year 2010 or its annual state charity registration. Now the group is facing two lawsuits, according to The New York Post.

    Earlier this month, musicians sued the charity after performing at FFAWN's star-studded benefit in May 2011, saying the checks written to cover the gig then bounced. TD Bank also claims that FFAWN defaulted on a $250,000 loan.

    Sounds like a lot of drama, which MJB usually wants no more of.
