Kelis’ Tax Troubles, Owes Government Over Half Million Dollars

Kelis has a pretty healthy amount to pay in back taxes. According to TMZ, the ex-wife of Nas owes the government over half million in unpaid taxes, which dates back to 2004.

The “Milkshake” hitmaker reportedly owes New York State $330,426.71 in unpaid taxes for 2004 and 2010. Court documents also reveal that she owes $61,737.29 in taxes to the state of California for 2009 and 2010 and $213,932.02 to the Federal government for the same years.

In total Kelis owes $606,096.12 in unpaid taxes.

It may be time to release a new album.
