Singer Mary J. Blige has settled a large portion of her huge tax debt.

The No More Drama singer was hit with a series of money woes in 2013 including accusations she owed the state of New Jersey more than $900,000 (£562,500) in back taxes.

However, new legal documents, seen by editors at, show the $901,770 (£563,606) tax debt has now been cleared.

The singer reportedly still owes $3.4 million (£2.1 million) to America's Internal Revenue Service (Irs) for income taxes she failed to pay on earnings between 2009 and 2011.

Last year (13), Blige was also sued over claims she had failed to pay back a number of loans.
