He’s recognised as one of the most successful R&B artists of all time but it seems even stars like R. Kelly can’t escape tax woes, after the 45-year-old has racked up another million dollars on his tax tab.
According to documents filed in the singer’s hometown of Illinois, the ‘Ignition’ hitmaker owes the US a cool $1, 379,695.11 for unpaid taxes for just last year alone.
Kelly was already in hot water with federal and state governments after it was discovered that he had failed to complete tax returns from the years 2005-2010, meaning that his total adds up to a massive $6,227,767.82.
According to the singer’s spokesperson:
”(R. Kelly) takes this very seriously and is already communicating with the IRS about the payment process to quickly resolve the issue.”
Meanwhile, R. Kelly is currently preparing for his upcoming Trapped Tour, which, if successful, could help him slowly chip away at the millions her currently owes!
