Lil' Kim reportedly owes $126,000 in taxes to the IRS

The former Junior M.A.F.I.A. member has reportedly failed to pay any taxes since 2010.

Lil’ Kim owes $126,725.12 in back taxes to the United States federal government, according to Life & Style. The 39-year-old rapper was served a federal tax lien by the IRS on September 22, claiming she failed to pay taxes in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Earlier this year, Kim was in trouble with her former legal counsel after failing to pay her hefty bills.

“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,” Life & Style report. “A judge ruled in the firm’s favor, ordering Kim to pay the sum — with interest.”

The Brooklyn-born MC is said to have paid over $1 million in taxes between 2002 and 2009.

Lil’ Kim isn’t the first rapper that the IRS has caught up with in recently. Last year, Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months imprisonment for tax evasion. Earlier this year, Lil Wayne was reported to have owed a massive $12 million in back taxes.
