Mary J. Blige's charity is being accused of cheating scholarship students. A cache of New York students who were granted scholarships by the organization are pissed at the charity, since their bills remain unpaid.
The finances of the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Achievement of Women Now (FFAWN) are already under investigation for failing to file 2010 tax returns, among other things, like defaulting on a loan.
Students from the Bronx's Women's Academy of Excellence, who were promised grants to fund their further education, claim their bills are unpaid and some even had to drop out.
What a mess.
MJB has vowed to fix the issues that her charity is facing. Sounds like some shady peeps were running it; it's not likely that Blige was involved in any of the day-to-day stuff that is the subject of questioning.
