Lil’ Kim is going through a financial struggle right now. The veteran rapper has been hit with a hefty tax lien by the Internal Revenue Service.
According to Life & Style, Kim owes $126,725.12 in back taxes. The IRS claims the 39-year-old rhymer failed to pay taxes in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, and now they want their money.
Not only does Uncle Sam want his dough, a law firm is also accusing the ‘Black Friday’ creator of not paying up. Four months ago, Dewey & LeBoeuf sued Kim for $186,217.93 for five years of legal service. A judge ruled in favor of the law firm and ordered the rapper to pay the fees plus interest.
Kim is not the only artist who tried to skip out on paying their taxes. Both Lauryn Hill and Fat Joe had to go to prison for not paying their taxes on time. Even Kim’s friends, R&B singers Faith Evans and Mary J. Blige, are going through some tax problems.
We hope Kim can resolve this legal matter. The last thing we want to see is her in an orange jumpsuit in prison — again. Especially, since she’s a new mom to baby Royal Reign, who was born in June.
