According to Life and Style mag, Lil Kim has not paid taxes since 2010. She owes the federal government $126, 725.12 in back taxes after failing to pay taxes since 2010. The IRS filed a lien against the 39-year-old emcee.
Earlier this year, Lil’ Kim was in financial trouble with her former counsel. “Four months ago, she was sued for failing to pay her former law firm, Dewey & LeBoeuf, $186,217.93 for five years of legal services,” the article says. “A judge ruled in the firm’s favor, ordering Kim to pay the sum — with interest.”
Kim reportedly had a tax bill over a $1 million dating from 2002-2009.
Lil’ Kim, who released the Hard Core 2k14 mixtape in late September, is one of several Hip Hop artists to face the IRS in recent years.
In early 2014, Young Money artist Lil Wayne was reported to owe more than $12 million to the IRS, after already having paid $7,000,000 to the IRS for his 2008-2009 bill.
