We're hoping Mary J. Blige isn't gon' cry over this latest legal hit.

The Grammy-winning R&B star is on the receiving end of a lawsuit filed by a Manhattan bank accusing Blige and her husband, Martin Isaacs, of defaulting on a $2.2 million loan.

Per the complaint filed in New York State Supreme Court on Wednesday, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters, Signature Bank is aiming to recover the original loan amount plus $58,000 in interest from the 41-year-old singer.

Mary J. Blige admits to charity snafu: "I didn't have the right people in the right places"

The suit stems from an advance she took out in October 2011 and allegedly failed to pay back by the agreed-upon deadline of July 2012.

Also named as a defendant in the suit was Blige's production company, Mary Jane Productions Inc.

An attorney for the songstress was unavailable for comment.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Blige has faced legal woes over money matters. Last May, TD Bank filed a similar suit against her charity, the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN) for allegedly failing to pay back the advance it loaned the organization.
