Money Monday. It’s a few days past “Pay Day” but that’s no reason why we shouldn’t take a look at what’s hurting Kelis‘ wallet. Speaking of hurting, is Miley Cyrus really trying to put a hurting on the music industry? A couple of people big on hurting the industry, in a good way, are Jay-Z and Beyoncé but even they need time to relax and catch a movie. Think you can guess what they went to see? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

It looks like Kelis is having a hard time making payments and an even harder time keeping Uncle Sam happy. Even after winning child support and spousal support from ex-husband Nas, Kelis still can’t catch a break. TMZ has the inside:
Answer: Kelis paying taxes in 2004.
Question: What is something that did NOT happen?
According to documents filed in May by Uncle Sam, Kelis did not pay federal income taxes 9 years ago … to the tune of $134,931.59.
As TMZ first reported, the singer also skipped out on her NY state taxes in 2004 and 2010 … as well as 2 years of CA state and federal taxes — add on the new lien, and her total debt comes to $741,027.59.
In related news — Kelis recently sold a condo in NYC for about $2.2 million … so she might have the scratch to settle up with the taxman.
Calls to Kelis’ camp have not been returned. (TMZ)
Selling condos? Owing taxes dating back almost a decade ago? Single mother? It seems Kelis has some stiff challenges going on, maybe a milkshake could really help her take it easy. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
