Mary J. Blige Discusses Charity Dilemma

A couple of days ago, it was reported that singer Mary J. Blige's charity, Foundation for the Advancement of Women, was to be sued by TD Bank for not repaying a loan.

And most recently, the legendary singer and songwriter discussed with Angie Martinez what led to the organization's troubles and revealed she found out about these issues not too long ago.

"FFAWN has been mismanaged and when I found out about all these issues, I immediately got on the phone with my lawyers and my advisers and tried to fix this so that none of those women would suffer. My goal is to do exactly what I set out to do. My motives were true and upfront. I set out to empower and encourage women, but it turns out the business part of it was not managed properly."

She continued on to say that in order for a business to run smoothly, everyone has to be on the same page. But when they're not, things like this happen.
