Mary J Blige Responds To Allegations Over Charity's Finances
Speaking to E! News, Blige said "As soon as I was informed of the issues at Ffawn, I immediately called my advisors and lawyers to get to the bottom of what was happening. As founder and CEO of Ffawn, I am ultimately responsible for anything that goes wrong. The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things. This should have never been allowed to happen, but it did and now we are fixing it. The good news is that we have been in touch with the Mjb Center in Yonkers and the scholarship program, and both are in good shape."
Blige apparently now has a completely new management team in place, and said "Ffawn is not closing down, Ffawn is working as quickly as possible with a new team of experts that includes a philanthropic consulting firm, a non-profit law firm, and a forensic accountant. Their goal is to get the foundation back on track, rectify outstanding issues, and make good on all of Ffawn's obligations."
