It pays to be broke ass broke if you”re Mary J. Blige“s foundation — a bank just agreed to slash the group”s debt by nearly $200,000 … our sources has learned.

According to legal docs, TD Bank reached a settlement with Mary J.”s charitable group … agreeing to let it pay a mere $125k — which might not sound like a great deal, until you realize the total tab was a whopping $322,000!

As our sources first reported … the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now was sued last year when it defaulted on a $250k loan. The charity even blamed the bank … claiming it should”ve know the group”s finances were in shambles.

According to the settlement, the group will pay back $15,000 immediately — and then make 12 easy payments of $9,166.

We”re guessing TD Bank agreed to the deep discount because … some money is better than none at all.
