(AllHipHop News) Mary J Blige a.k.a. “The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul,” was hit with a lawsuit yesterday (November 28), claiming that she and her husband defaulted on a $2.2 million loan from Signature Bank. According to Reuters, documents were filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, seeking to recoup the $2.2 million loan that Mary J Blige took out in October 2011. According to the lawsuit, Mary J. Blige and her husband Kendu Isaacs defaulted on the loan in July 2012, resulting in over $58,000 in interest. Earlier this year, Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute’s Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., allegedly defaulted on a $250,000 dollar loan as well.

BET Networks is preparing to bring two new original comedies to the network in 2013. Comedian/actor Kevin Hart is expanding on a hilarious skit that aired during the BET Awards in 2011 titled “Real Husbands of Hollywood.” The new show features Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin J.B. Smoove and Robin Thick, in a semi-scripted reality show focusing on their lives in Hollywood. “I haven’t been this excited about a project of mine in a while, there is nothing like this on television,” Kevin Hart said. “The levels of funny that will be reached on this show are endless.” Celebrities like Russell Simmons, Common, Shaquille O’Neill, Nelly, Trey Songz and Jay Leno are among the stars that make appearances in the show, which is slated to debut on Tuesday, January 15. BET is also preparing a new show with Damien and Craig Wayans titled “Second-Generation Wayans” that will debut directly after the premiere of “Real Husbands of Hollywood.”

Producer Ryan Leslie appeared in court on Tuesday (November 27), where he lost a $1 million judgment over a reward offered for a stolen laptop. Ryan Leslie’s laptop was stolen in November 2010, in Cologne Germany. Leslie went to the Internet and offered a $20,000 reward for the laptop, which contained valuable productions created by the producer, on its hard drive. Because of the productions, Leslie upped the reward to $1 million for the safe return of the laptop and the files that were contained on the hard drive. An auto mechanic in Cologne named Armin Augstein found the laptop while he was walking his dogs. According to the New York Post, the pair ended up in a dispute over the loot in Manhattan Federal Court, where a jury ruled against Ryan Leslie, claiming that he was legally obligated to pay the $1 million reward for the safe return of the laptop.

  • why would mary j blidge take out a 2 million doller loan? from all the records she sold

    • It’s called living beyond your means… smh… so sad the things people will do to maintain a lavish lifestyle that only sets them back in the end.

        I agree. These women get these guys who they claim are this and that with this title or this company or whatever going on and what we find out in the end is that they are nice dressers who owe the world and stars like Mary Blige end up paying out their ass to keep up the appearance that their frontin’ ass men portray.

      • king

        Truth always hurt when it’s you ni$$@.

      • I guess you still haven’t gotten over walking in on your mom, while she’s gorging herself on Black man milk, or coming home from work, and seeing your EX wife, engaging in rectum stretching action, with the local, unemployed, street brother, who makes a living sharing the alimony you pay to your ex wife,

        I bet right now, he has her on her knees, giving her a taste of life, while she explains why she’d rather be his whore, than your wife & how you never touched her….once!

        LOL

        Now your on here, trying to interact with Black, on some negative attention, homo ‘chet!

        I have no problem with homosexuals, but you sir, are a Hip Swinging fa99ot, and I will have no further exchange with you, because you are probably some fat dude, in beige thongs, masturbating to my post!

      • king

        As said truth only hurts when it’s you ni$$@ isn’t there some cars you could be jacking ni$$@.

      • Terrance Goodman

  • brotha_man

    I wonder why RL doesnt use cloud storage to keep his music, in an age where computers crash, get lost, or stolen….word of advice back your files up dummy and you can avoid offering someone 1 millie dollars that you dont have

    • tab58064

      I said that shit from the minute he began whining about his stolen laptop. If the shit was so important why would he keep it on a laptop that he travels with. I mean damn, there are pocket hard drives, cloud storage, etc. There’s no excuse for artists losing their work in this manner nowadays!! Pay that damn mechanic and save your fuckin’ image clown!!

  • tab58064

    Damn Mary J., it seems you and Ryan Leslie like to skip out on paying people!

  • How do you not learn from the Diddy’s and Jiggas of this world?! I simply don’t understand.
